Saw: The Video Game Put on the Chopping Block
Oh, that’s right; I’d forgotten there was a video game in the works based on the movie/never-ending sequel fest, Saw. That’s probably because it’s a game based on a series of films whose only real entertainment comes form the inventive traps, which wouldn’t require much action on the part of a player.
Anyway, with Brash Entertainment now gone, it looks like the Saw video game is facing cancellation unless it can find a new home. Apparently the game was almost finished and voice-over work was being recorded, so finding a publisher to pick up the game might not be too difficult. Several games, including Ghostbusters and 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand had the same problem earlier this year, and now they’re both back on track for release. Of course those were two hotter properties than a film franchise that’s pretty much run its course, so we’ll have to see what happens.
