David Jaffe Reveals Drawn to Death, a Doodle-Inspired Multiplayer Shooter

drawn to death 12-6-14-1

Twisted Metal and God of War creator David Jaffe has revealed his new game.

Dubbed simply “Drawn to Death,” the new game was confirmed at this year’s Playstation Experience. A collaborative effort between Jaffe’s new studio The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency and Sony San Diego, it’s also a Playstation 4 exclusive.

Players will be able to pick a character in a doodle like world, inspired from a typical high school student’s notebook. Jaffe described the game as a “thinking mans game,” but quickly let out a joke saying “or should I say thinking womans game? Gamergate’s gonna kill me.”

    Oh Jaffe. How many people are gonna take that quote out of context I wonder?

    Jaffe is awesome. I love how direct and honest he is. Plus he had the balls to mention GamerGate on stage. The game looks great, but I’m not much into MP shooters.

    He had previous experience with Leigh Alexander and is semi mindful.

    Jaffe seems completely ungrateful of what Gamergate is doing. The media tried to fuck him over, and he just rolls over like a dog.

    I’ve never enjoyed a single thing created by David Jaffe. I have, however, enjoyed seeing how the man leads his life. He’s a good person.

    Keep in mind, he is on our side. The man bitched out Kotaku on soundcloud, so I’m sure he’s making fun of the Anti’s, not us.

    I’d say he is more neutral, but as you mentioned he had his issues with The Megaphone. I still think it is a good thing he mentioned GamerGate.

    well, my message to Jaffe would be “Make the game awesome, and We’ll forgive you.”

    Hell, that’s my message to pretty much all game makers.

    Not at all. Jaffe agrees with much of the same things GamerGate is attempting to do (he even retreated one of the main GamerGate memes about being against harassment and corrupt journalism), he just has some issues with how it is proceeding.

    Honestly, I think he has some fair points, and I think it would be great if members of GamerGate would spin off some organizations to work on some of the major issues, and then GamerGate could become independent watch dogs of those organizations to make sure they aren’t co-opted. The harassment patrol basically did just that and has had some pretty good success so far.
