David Jaffe’s Drawn To Death sounds wonderfully mental

Drawn to death

True art isn’t found in museums, private collections or under dodgy bridges. Its found in high school textbooks, as bored students doodle ways to pass the time in a series of illustrations that would make quack head doctors vomit in disgust. The textbook doodle is a form of art that rarely sees any focus lavished on it. But the next game from God Of War creator David Jaffe is is all about violent sketches.

With a unique pencil and ink design aesthetic, Drawn To Death is a multiplayer shooter from Jaffe and his studio, The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency. Set in the notebook of a high school student, battles rage inside the book as players battle it out as crudely drawn characters with ridiculous weaponry. Here’s what it looks like in action:

“We want Drawn To Death to play like the offspring of an old school arena shooter (with updated, modern sensibilities) and a hardcore brawler/fighting game,” Jaffe said in a PlayStation Blog post.

We want our signature launch mode — a 4 Player Free For All Deathmatch — to be action packed while also giving Players the need and ability to master advanced environment movement, learn and exploit enemy tells, and form clever strategies that pay off in big victories!

The game is currently in the pre-alpha stage, and will be a PS4 exclusive. If you’re keen on trying it out, you can sign up for it right now. Meanwhile, I’ll be watching concerned mothers and opportunistic politicians protest in advance against the game, because it clearly promotes school violence. Clearly.

    Ah yes, David Jaffe, the maker of some of the most violent video games on the planet. And Mickey Mania.
