New Sketch-Style Shooter ‘Drawn to Death’ Making an April Debut on the PS4 (VIDEO)
The shooter genre has gone through some drastic changes through the years – some good, some “what the hell were they thinking!?” We all know what franchise first came to mind with the latter. Aside from the natural evolution of this particular genre, a few developers have taken to some pretty interesting ideas when innovative creativity sparks. A perfect example? The sketch-style shooter by Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency’s third-person shooter: Drawn to Death.
Game designer David Jaffe and Sony’s San Diego Studio teamed up for this new take on a shooter and it is expected to drop on April 4th and will retail for $19.99. The concept is a unique one and instantly caught the eye of players looking for a different kind of experience when it was first announced at the PlayStation Experience in 2014. The overall gist of this title centers around a multiplayer arena style that comes to life in the pages of a high school student’s notebook. Perfect for when your inner artist just wants to go out and totally obliterate in a game.
Drawn to Death challenges the shooter genre with unconventional gameplay mechanics and unique character perks, fine-tuned with the help of San Diego Studio and The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency.
Drawn to Death will feature 6 playable characters at launch as well as 6 different game modes. That’s not all the game will entail, this is what Jaffe released about the upcoming adventure:
- Organ Donor: In this objective based mode, Players must shoot the heart out of an enemy’s chest. Then take the heart to a stationary base for 1 point. Take the heart to a moving base for 2X points! First Player to 20 points wins!
- Classic Deathmatch: First to 10 kills wins.
- Classic Team Deathmatch: First team with 20 kills wins.
- Core Deathmatch: First Player to 5 points wins. 1 kill = 1 point, but every time you die you lose a point. (Defense matters!)
- Core Team Deathmatch: Same as Core Deathmatch, but for teams. First team to 10 points wins.
- Brawl: In this mode, levels get smaller on the fly to create a more intense one-on-one battle/fighting game experience!
