Shutter Island…the game?
If this ESRB rating is anything to go by then yes there is a Shutter Island game incoming. What platform you ask? The Nintendo DS…It’s nothing personal with the system itself , hell I love the DS, but how awesome would it have been to see this as a digital title on XBLA and PSN. This is quite funny actually, because I just finished watching the movie a couple of days ago and thought the whole time watching it “hey this movie is a lot like a video game”. Quite ironic, but it looks like I won’t be buying this. Will you?

This is a seek-and-find puzzle game, based on the movie Shutter Island, in which players assume the role of U.S. marshals who investigate odd occurrences in the Ashercliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Players search for clues/items among scenes of jumbled objects, and interview hospital personnel to uncover the whereabouts of a criminal. A handful of items contain blood on them (e.g., a blood-soaked cloth, a scalpel with light traces); other items include smoking pipes and cigarette packs (there is also occasional dialogue referencing smoking). During the course of the investigation, players can obtain patients’ files that detail acts of murder: the drowning of a patient’s three children; the arrangement of dead bodies around a dinner table; and the scalping of relatives for use as hats.”
