According to director Francois Potentier, "When we read the first comments following the announcement of our new game, we understood that our fans expected a different content from a game entitled 'Obscure'. We understand fans all the better because we are first and foremost passionate gamers! Thus, even if the game makes a great number of references to Obscure and Obscure 2, we thought it important to rename it. At the end of the day, it's a question of honesty and respect to the gamers. 'Final Exam' does befit the game accurately. Final Exam is the first corner stone of our new studio, and we hope this title will enable us to grow, as we have not given up on the idea of developing a real sequel to Obscure."
As part of the name change, the developer has launched a new official site, www.finalexam-thegame.com.
Final Exam will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC next September.
