Konami Signs Saw Game, Releases Screenshots

Zombie Studios' licensed Saw video game lives on--even if its characters may not--as Konami has confirmed that it's signed the project and plans to release it this fall. nope

It's now slated to launch alongside the theatrical release of Saw VI, the publisher told Variety's The Cut Scene blog. In addition, the site was provided with the first screenshots of the upcoming PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game, rehosted above. The fate of the torturous game became murky last year after former publisher Brash imploded.

As for the actual gameplay, players find themselves in an asylum filled with devious traps by series antagonist and/or life coach Jigsaw. They and can either solve the puzzles of the traps, and thus save folks, or leave the victims to Jigsaw's grim devices.
