I've seen this image ign.com and rushed here to simplymaya to check if it was the same one that Mckinley posted. Turns out it was. :attn: I am a gamer myself, it'll be interesting how this one will turn out.

I'm hoping it'll get a warmer reception than the internet trollz so far have given these sneak peeks. But that's the internet for ya. So far it seems like if they were Saw fans already, they're interested, if they weren't, they automatically think it sucks.

I personally think it has a lot of potential and hope the reviews reflect that. Only time will tell.

Lots of videos and write-ups popping up:

While I'd say Tomb Raider was probably the highest profile game I've worked on, this game probably has the highest profile with a proliferation of my own work in it. In TR, I didn't do a whole lot of art that was my own, just a lot of fixing other people's stuff. In Saw I've got a whole lot of work that I can call my own, which is exciting. Unfortunately, it's mostly the trap stuff, which they're choosing to not show until launch. :p haha

Hey Mike,
Your obviously proud of your work (and so you should be!).

Looks really good and must have been a lot of fun to do!
