‘Saw’ Video Game in Peril? Game Over for Brash Entertainment?

Several sources have confirmed to Variety that Brash Entertainment is ceasing operations as of tomorrow. Not too surprising given its many problems, as I reported last week. In a nutshell, the few games it managed to put out sold poorly, it wasted money on some ill conceived ideas, and talented executives fled as they saw how things were going. Since co-founder Thomas Tull left the board, I understand that the investors who had committed $400 million when Brash launched last year had pulled out. So Brash was simply out of cash. Brash was developing the SAW video game with Twisted Pictures, leaving this title in a possible state of limbo. We’ll make a few calls and see what we can find out.
