Video game company Brash Entertainment is continuing its close collaboration with Hollywood, adding both the Saw franchise and Space Chimps movie to its line-up.

First up, a Space Chimps title will roll out alongside the 20th Century Fox film on July 18th 2008. The CGI-animated adventure comedy follows the adventures of a mischievous circus chimps named Ham, who happens to be the grandson of the first primate ever sent into space.

The game will roll out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii and DS system.

"The Space Chimps movie introduces a loveable cast of characters that fans will be quite fond of," said Mitch Davis, co-founder of Brash Entertainment. "We've collaborated with Vanguard to create a game that incorporates the characters and world of the movie while building a unique storyline with new characters, giving fans the opportunity to be able to live in the 'Space Chimps' world a little longer."

In addition, Brash has snapped up the rights to a game based on grisly horror movie Saw. The title is currently in development for next-gen platforms and will be built using the Unreal 3 game engine.

It is pencilled in for release in October 2009, in conjunction with the next installment of the film series. The game will have its own unique storyline, while answering the questions left unanswered by the movies.
