'Saw' franchise to be released as video game
If you just can't get enough of people being ruthlessly tortured, fear not! You'll be able to do it yourself. The SAW franchise is set to be made into a video game using the various plotlines of the current 4 films. Really, this is totally necessary. Totally.
There's really not much else to this story, except for my biting sarcasm. Bloody Disgusting reports:
* At Brash Entertainment's recent press event, IGN UK received word that a game based on the Saw movie franchise is still in development. This information was delivered to them through a teaser trailer that featured the Jigsaw puppet explaining that we as game journalists were wasting our lives in the industry -- so we'll take his word for it. Scheduled for a release in October of 2009, the game will weave in and out of the Saw movie plotlines and will be an intricate collaboration between the development studio and the filmmakers. While this is really all the information we have on the title at the moment, we should note that the game will be running on the Unreal III engine and will likely be released on PS3 and 360.
Bah. I mean, seriously. What's the point? What are you supposed to do in the game? Torture other people or escape being tortured?
