You know how all the really excellent video games invariably become undeniably awesome movies called House of the Dead, Doom, BloodRayne, and Resident Evil 2? Well here's a switch you didn'tdefinitely did see coming: Looks like game giant Konami will be teaming up with the Twisted Pictures gang in order to bring Saw: The Video Game to Xbox, Playstation, and PC monitors. As the creators of the Castlevania and Silent Hill series, Konami is no stranger to the scary stuff -- plus they have another one coming out soon called Zombie Apocalypse! Cool!

Anyway, based on the official website (which has a detailed synopsis and a handful of screenshots), the Saw game will be "a third-person perspective, survival horror game based on the SAW film franchise, which has grossed more than $665M worldwide and sold more than 28 million DVDs. The game features many of the deadly mechanical traps seen in the film, as well as terrifying new ones. Players will pit their wits against Jigsaw as they navigate his world in an attempt to evade and escape his gruesome traps, while also struggling against his minions in brutal combat by using weapons found within the environment."

Whew, for a second I thought we were going to play AS Jigsaw. Boy, that'd get a lot of parents angry, wouldn't it? Sounds like a basic but amusing horror game, only infused with a familiar dose of Jigsaw jigginess. Since I own a 360 I'll be sure to check the game out when it splatters onto shelves this Fall -- but it's gotta be pretty damn good if it's going to live up to THIS classic horror movie video game!
