Sony and David Jaffe have announced the future release of a new game for its Play Station to be called Drawn to Death. While the game is still in development, this marks some badly needed good news for Sony which is reeling from one revelation after another in regards to the recent hacking of its databases.
Drawn to death will be a PS4-exclusive third-person multi player arena shooter game. It was first revealed at the PlayStation Experience opening ceremony. It marks Jaffe’s first project for his new company The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency.

The promo video, like with all such promos for video games these days, feels like a movie trailer. But since the game is characterized as still being in the “pre-alpha” stage, no actual video clips of it exist yet. So instead the viewer is treated to a series of drawings in a notebook that look like doodles that came from the mind of a bored teenager.
As with all such games there is a lot of shooting guns and blowing things up.
Gamers’ responses to it have so far been mixed. One tweeted, “Interesting concept, but I don’t think I’ll be playing. The art style hurts my eyes. I’m not saying that in wise ass, “Oh my god that’s ugly, my eyes are bleeding!” type of way. It actually looks cool, but I can’t look at it long, my eyes start to hurt.”
Another wrote, “This looks so awesome. Love Jaffe games. Wish I could play this.”
