If you’ve logged many hours playing Friday the 13th: The Game, you might have come across one or two of the “Pamela Tapes,” incredibly hard to find in-game treasures that document interview sessions between Mrs. Voorhees and the police in the wake of young Jason’s drowning death.
We’re incredibly excited to exclusively report today that the game is set to deepen the mythology of the film franchise even further with the Tommy Jarvis Tapes!
Even cooler? The 13 tapes were written by Hatchet filmmaker and hardcore fan of the Friday the 13th franchise, Adam Green!
“We became friends with Adam Green through Kane a while back and wanted to find a way to work together,” Gun Media’s Wes Keltner explained to us. “We think what he’s doing for horror is pretty special and he’s a sharp guy, and has a strong literary pen to boot. With the fandom around the Pamela Tapes we thought it would be interesting to dive into the character of Tommy Jarvis too. That’s when we sat down with Adam and started one of those awesome horror conversations that only nerds like us have. ‘So Tommy Jarvis…we’ve seen that character as a kid, troubled late teens and then in his twenties through the films…but there’s gaps, right? Lets fill those!’”
Keltner continued, “We along with Adam were giddy as school children when kicking these stories around. He really ran with it and came back with an incredible story that we all loved. We quickly fired up our voice-over partners and went to work recording this character narrative.”
Starting later tonight and into tomorrow, when the new update posts to Steam, XB1 and PS4, players can start finding “The Jarvis Tapes” around every map in the game.
