Obscure: The Aftermath is a survival-horror game aimed at people that love Hollywood screamers. The story involves a rowdy fraternity party that unleashes mutants on a college campus, and the to-do list calls for hacking up those creatures with hockey sticks, chainsaws, and other fun killing implements.

Overclocked! Yeah! Rip off your safety switch - this is gonna be crazy, like an upturned hat filled with jumping murder beans. Rip out your teeth, Grandma - this is gonna get mucky. In fact, Overclocked is as low-octane as point-and-clicks get, turning the engine off and freewheeling downhill toward Lake Atmospherically Placid.

So every night, this guy frizzes and waxes his hair, puts on a spot of eyeliner, dons skinny jeans and adopts a lisp. He heads to a bar, and chats up every girl he sees. Most of them take one look and leave – he looks cheap and ridiculous. Once in a while though, a girl – maybe she’s drunk, maybe she’s stupid – thinks ‘yeah. He looks like Criss Angel.
