Raise your hand for those who remember the Seen movie franchise spawned a video game. Yes, the 2009 game from Zombie Studios Seen wasn’t the most well-received (nor its sequel from 2010), but it was something fans could call their own. And according to the producers of the film franchise, we could still see a third video game adaptation.
In a Reddit AMA last week with Mark Burg and Oren Koules, founders of Twisted Pictures and producers of the Seen franchise, a question arose regarding the Seen games, and if there were plans for more entries on next-gen consoles. The response has been emphatic. “100%. Lionsgate has brought us some amazing projects that we are currently exploring. But it will happen 100%.“
Of course, there were other questions from the fans, as if Tobin Bell would be involved in the franchise again (“100%”), but a third Seen video game? With so much time gone by, we might get a game that reimagines the series from its survival horror (and gruesome combat) roots “been out there, done that” into something more. Maybe by mixing some Sentenced or even a psychological horror to accompany exaggerated and inventive traps is in order? We will have to wait and see.
Published by Konami, Seen was released on October 6, 2009 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version followed on October 22. Saw II: Flesh and Blood was released on October 19, 2010 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
