Dec 11, 2015

David Jaffe and I sat down during Playstation Experience 2015 and chatted about Drawn To Death, a free-to-play third-person multiplayer shooter video game coming from The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency and SCE San Diego Studio. I could not have asked for a better scene as I sat down shoulder to shoulder next to one of the legendary game designers of our time and talk as if we were fishing or playing pool. Afer asking the question about the meaning of life, as it relates to the gaming industry, Jaffe expounded on the unconventional inquiry and crushed it - I knew he would.

To that end, the updates described above are all currently slated to hit across Winter and Spring of 2016, with more to come, as well.
