* ShoutOut:
** In the first game, a flyer in the girls' bathroom in the administration building tries to warn people that aliens are among us, which the characters dismiss as paranoid nonsense -- a reference to ''Film/TheFaculty'', one of the game's main inspirations.
** There has to be a reason why the first game has characters named [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Stan, Kenny, and Mr. Garrison]]...
** Jedidiah in the second game is a fairly obvious one to [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]].
** In ''Final Exam'', Nathan's monster-trap special attack is this to ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', even referencing it in the description.

** The data files for the first game also reveal that Dan was intended to play a much larger role than he actually did. Instead of getting killed in the prologue, he was supposed to have been one of the main characters instead of Kenny, who was originally the one who got killed off.

Indeed, the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHC84igPwW0 the game's trailer]] shows Kenny getting killed and dragged off by a monster, which obviously wasn't in the final game.

*** The first incarnation, ''[=ObsCure=]: Dark Aura'', was to have featured Shannon as the main character. It was scrapped, with elements from it being used for...
*** ''[=ObsCure=] D'', which was to have been an {{interquel}} to the two ''[=ObsCure=]'' games, filling in the gaps surrounding [[AnotherSideAnotherStory what happened to Josh and Ashley]]. That version was canceled after Hydravision went out of business.

*** ''[=ObsCure=] D'', which was to have been an {{interquel}} to the two ''[=ObsCure=]'' games, filling in the gaps surrounding games. It would have been about a group of people, led by Ashley's younger sister Liddyah, [[AnotherSideAnotherStory what happened to searching for Josh and Ashley]].Ashley]] a few days before the events of the second game. It was here that the more exaggerated, LighterAndSofter art style of what became ''Final Exam'' is first known to have showed up, as well as the TwoAndAHalfD gameplay. That version was canceled after Hydravision went out of business.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As seen [[http://www.unseen64.net/2012/11/27/obscure-d-cancelled-xbox-360-ps3-pc/ here]], ''Final Exam'' went through multiple incarnations and quite a bit of DevelopmentHell before it was released.

** After the project was resurrected by Mighty Rocket, it was intended as a {{reboot}} of the series, but [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks fan backlash]] over the game's radically different [[GenreShift gameplay]], [[ArtShift art style]], and story forced the developers to {{retool}} it into a non-canon spinoff.
