Drawn To Death Interview

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Here is our Drawn To Death interview with David Jaffe. Drawn To Death is the first project with his new studio The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency. Tonight we spoke about the games creation, the target markets, and how they’re planning to rid of the bad stigma a ‘Free to Play’ game can cause.

Drawn To Death takes place within a teenagers sketch book, where he has a bunch of his hand drawn creations go out in an all out war against each other. Drawn To Death is a 4 player online arena shooter, coming soon exclusively for the PS4.

What does Drawn To Death have to offer:

  • Unconventional Combat
    Combining each character’s unique arsenal of weapons with deep gameplay mechanics, Drawn to Death blurs the lines of a nuanced fighting game with the action of a competitive shooter.
  • Show Your Skill
    Players can level up characters by completing specific challenges that unlock unique rewards and upgrade characters’ weapons and abilities.
  • Solo and Team Play
    Players will be able to face off in free-for-all and team based modes. Play with friends, or against the world.
  • Extraordinary Visuals
    The frenetic, pencil-sketch visuals add to the game’s in-your-face combat.
