Brash Entertainment provided today an update on the status of the next SAW videogame.

Set to release in October 2009, in conjunction with the next installment of the film series, SAW the videogame will give fans of Jigsaw and these films a reason to live. Collaborating closely with Lions Gate and Twisted pictures, the game will have its own unique storyline, while answering questions left unanswered by the SAW films. In an effort to stay true to the movies, Brash is working closely with creators of the SAW franchise, Leigh Whannell and James Wan, ensuring the game pulls no punches, and delivers the horrifying suspense and disbelief that has floored fans worldwide. The SAW game is currently in development for next-gen platforms and will be built using the Unreal 3 game engine.

Unreal 3 engine is a good engine, but this game will have to be done well. Movie - Game, games often fail and are rubbish. We will just have to wait and see.

i am pumped. i would love to be placed in a random room and have to solve riddles and what not to get out... all while getting freaked/grossed out.

and it sounds like it will no doubt be a first-person viewpoint. :)
good stuff.

I hate puzzles. But not if your life is at stake.

First person would ruin this, Needs to be old school Resi-cam survival horror. 1st person possibly for the puzzle escapes, but no way for walking around... would ruin the heart pounding atmosphere.

This news made me LOL. Never liked any of the Saw movies and thought they were dumb as hell, it should of been a comedy because I be laughing at a lot of the stupid stuff in their movies.

the movies are great... for the horror/gore genre, good stories are hard to find and always lacking. to say the saw storyline is not well-written and clever would be wrong. i would guess you have not seen all of the films, which do a great job of tying everything together.

They're actually going through with this....well, I still might give it a rent, just for the survival horror genre (I'm pretty sure that's what it'll be).

And no, the movies aren't good. Well, if you're a fan of torture porn, maybe. The first was decent, and I didn't like any of the other ones.

Have you even seen the movies? Dude man, its not torture porn, there is one scene out of all 4 movies that has nudity in it, and secondly most people dont watch the movie because it shows people getting tortured. Its because the storyline is so interesting that it pulls people back in to see what happens next, the torture is just a part of what saw is. I hate when people look at saw and go "There still making these crappy ass torture porn movies, what a bunch of sick bastards" when thats not what the movie is all about.

Sounds interessting, being part of one of Jigsaw's sick games, having to kill/mutilate (hope this is written right) someone or myself to escape.

exactly. i was very hesitant to watch the first couple, but was dragged along by a friend... now i anxiously await each new part of the story/series. every year, on halloween. ;) and for someone who enjoys horror/thriller movies, finding a good storyline is nearly impossible, but saw delivers.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to get you to go on a rant. I use the term torture porn (and yes, its a very stupid term) for all torture movies, just not movies like Hostel.

and all of this is coming from the guy who has the new rambo movie in his avatar and sig... now THAT is a good movie. :p

im just playin, but yeah... new rambo? better story than saw? not quite.

and yes. you are right. i would probably classify hostel under torture porn before saw. much, much closer to it. ;)

IMO, Rambo was a much better movie than Saw. In my opinion. And yeah, I use the term torture porn for all torture movies...dunno why.

fair enough. we call it a difference in taste in movies. ;)

regardless though, i hope the game is scary and/or fun. but, movies-turned-games do not have a very nice track record... i guess we will see in time...

just because it adds new characters to cover up for plot holes doesnt mean it has a good story.
the first and second were good, 3rd not very good, and havent seen the 4th one and i dont plan on it.

but this is the videogame, so i will give it a shot. but the odds of it being good certainly are stcked up against it.

I wasn't overly keen about 12 hours ago but now im looking forward to it. Its a long way off but it sounds like its gonna be great, its done by the people who do the films, decent engine and its gonna be first person and answer more questions from the films. Whats not to like. :)

SAW still sucks!

I'm sorry for the angry rants about this. I'm sick of money being milked on crap like this.

We don't need a SAW video game, and we definitely don't need another SAW movie.

Done right, this could be amazing. Done wrong, this could be absolutely terrible. We'll have to see.

this game will probably wind up being a failure

Yeah, I see crappy story, crappy puzzles, AMAZING blood graphics.

Hopefully it will have easy achievements!

The Saw movies are made for sickos who love watching sick stuff. This game will most likely get AO and not even get released, it will also suck, not a prediction a fact.

SAW is one of my fave films ever this would be so sweeeeeeeeet. I wonder what the achievements would be like. :D

These will be some gruesome achievements indeed.

Although this would be great for the Wii, :P

I've got a feeling that this game would have too many REALLY annoying puzzles that you have to beat in a time limit.

Too many people would get pissed off with it.

And thousands of threads saying "Help with Mission 3" etc...


On the other hand, Unreal engine, could be fun.

This actually sounds very, very interesting. I just want to see how the developers will implement the parts of SAW into a video game
