Obscure

This is a survival horror game, with the usual conventions of the genre - solving puzzles, killing monsters, mapping areas, et al. This game stands out for a number of reasons, though: very nice graphics; it's set in a high school, so shades of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'; but most significantly, it has you controlling multiple players to achieve different tasks.. rather nifty. It has a decidedly odd atmosphere to it, which adds to the sensation of 'not quite right'-ness, but the odd atmosphere I put down to the designers sensibility being decidedly non-Japanese and non-American rather than deliberate design choices. You'll know what I mean if you ever try the game.


Bonus: Gameplay footage.
