Exclusive ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Concept Art!

When the Kickstarter campaign for Friday the 13th: The Game ended last year with more than $823k raised by 12,218 backers, we were left with a murder of stretch goals that still desperately needed to get unlocked. The game has been slowly creeping toward those remaining stretch goals thanks to a separate Slasher Backer campaign that has raised an additional $57k — or enough to get us three more flavors of Jason.

Gun Media is turning to Lady Democracy with a poll that’s expected to go up this week so the community can determine which of Jason’s many looks will be making it into the game. While we wait for that to come true, here’s a little eye candy protein inspired by Part 7.

We’re about $45k away from a stretch goal that’ll unlock three counselor skins, with unique skill combinations for each, or $70k short of getting a trio of secret kills designed by legendary special make-up effects artist Tom Savini. But first…

Which three versions of Jason would you most like to see in Friday the 13th: The Game?

    Not buying this game unless they add single player. That shouldn’t be a stretch goal but a default mode.

    • concerned citizen

      Absolutely 100% what Khy said.

    • Yeah i Agree. Just makes me feel like if it was never top priority to them its not going to be very good

    • Do you know of a better way for them to get the resources that would be required to implement a single-player mode? It’s not going to be cheap.

      I understand why it might seem strange that a game based on a renowned franchise like Friday the 13th has to crowdfund such a basic feature, but that’s really the only way it can happen. Gun Media can’t throw money at this in the same way that publishers like EA, Activision, Ubisoft, 2K, or Take-Two could. Their pockets aren’t deep enough, and even with the brand recognition, Friday the 13th: The Game is a risky endeavor.

      With that said, solo play is absolutely still a possibility. Whether or not it makes it into this game specifically has effectively been put in the hands of the community, but even if it doesn’t work out this time, there’s a definite possibility that it’ll come in the future (DLC, sequel, etc.)

      I’d also like to have the option of playing it offline, but games development is enormously expensive and we need to be realistic. The folks who are currently working on bringing Jason back to video games after his decades-long hiatus are clearly very passionate about the series. I see that passion in everything they’ve showed us so far. If we want Friday the 13th to have a presence in video games that isn’t limited to this one title, then we’ll need to support it even if it doesn’t have all of the content we’d like it to have.

      IMO.

      • wehoaks

        Or he can just not buy it like he said and not get a damn lecture about it.

      • Khy

        No single player, no buy. Giant block of circle jerk text won’t change that hun.

        • wehoaks

          Mic. Drop.

      • Sky Commander

        Single player challenge mode can happen if 12401 people preorder a $60 physical copy the full offline mode round about 17800 people preorder

    • Fracassi

      I agree. I don’t want to play a cheerleader hiding in a sleeping bag.

  • dangerzone79

    Gotta see Part 7, Part 3/4 (4 more so) and Part 8. Maybe a JGTH version too.

  • rezblue

    It drives me crazy seeing this single player argument over and over. I won’t even bother pointing out anymore how clueless you people are about this project.

    On topic though. I’m hoping that 6,8 and 9 end up winning this vote. They are the best of the remaining looks. 4 is so similar to 3 that i’d rather have something more distinct. Uber Jason is dumb but it seems like a lot of people want it.

    • Khy

      ” I won’t even bother pointing out anymore how clueless you people are about this project”

      You kinda just did, stretch.

      • wehoaks

        Love his pissy use of “On topic though” as if you weren’t talking about the game.

        • Khy

          AKA “Let’s not talk about this. It makes my anus clamp up.”

      • Doomsday

        We get it you can’t handle the fact this isn’t being backed by a big studio with deep pockets, and you can’t comprehend multiplayer is a hell of a lot cheaper to develop (cough cough Star Wars Battlefront) then single player. We’re just tired of hearing you whine like little bitches. Don’t like it? Don’t buy it. Crying like a bitch on the internet about it isn’t going to fix it unless fans are willing to pony up the budget for them, that’s how kickstarter works numb nuts.

        • wehoaks

          SOOOOO CUTE that this is your FIRST ever BD comment. Get back to work on this shitty game.

          • Creepshow

            Villain Smash is trickling over.

        • Khy

          Crying like a little bitch about me crying like a little bitch won’t make me buy your game either.

          Get back to work nerd.

        • RidleyScott

          Go back to licking Sean Cunningham’s salty old man nut-sack.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Versions 2, 4, and 7.

  • Ravinus

    gonna suck regardless.

    • Doomsday

      If it sucks half as good as your mom does then I’m sold…. shit already paid for it. BONUS!

      • wehoaks

        You’ve never gotten head, shut up.

        • Khy

          Bless the…living organism that ever gives it to him. Yuck!

      • Khy

        Really? Mom blowjob jokes? From the guy working on a shitty game. MmmKay.

  • Really excited because they went in the right direction, my only complaint (and yea there always is one for this game) is that if multiplayers gonna throw you into a bloodbath as soon as you get started, its kind of like jumping into the last 30 minutes of the Jason films. Not saying the rounds need to spend an hour before kills lol i just think their should be some freetime before the jason player comes and im not sure if they already handled that situation or not yet but hopefully.

  • Hockey Machete

    Since Hodder and Richard Brooker’s Jasons are already in the game, the ones I’d like featured are Ted White, Derek Mears, and Steve Dash’s Jasons (with the option of their Jasons running to make it more authentic if possible)

  • macdaddymario

    Meanwhile, I’m over here laughing at the people crying about single player. Not gonna buy the game without it? Cool. Don’t need to post on a topic about it as it should no longer be on your radar.

    Feel the company owes you something? Cool! Invest in their stocks so you actually have a reason to be upset. Money doesn’t come out of their ass after all, just like it doesn’t come out of your own. Otherwise, those crying look just as salty as those defending it. Nut up, or shut up.

    • wehoaks

      OH CUUUUUUTE another dork who has never posted here before. Get back to work on that shitty game nerd.

      “Feel the company owes you something?” – um yeah these people paid for their stupid shitty game you fucking moron.

      • macdaddymario

        Clearly they didn’t, if they have said they aren’t buying it without a single player “you fuckig moron”. The ones that paid, aren’t crying about no single player, buckaroo.

        I post with this system all the time, get over it partner. Sound just as salty as those defending no single player.Nut up, or shut up.

        • wehoaks

          Stop eating your boogers and get back to work on this shitty game.

          • macdaddymario

            No need to, my work is done here. Pointed out your failed logic and now I’ll be on my merry way. If you want your opinion taken seriously, maybe invest in the company. Otherwise gr8 b8 m8. Perfect 5/7.

          • wehoaks

            You have never and will never touch a tit.

            Invest with THAT company? I’d be better off flushing it down my toilet. Sorry Ms. Junior Exec of Virgin Nerd Gaming, but no.

          • Khy

            Only tit he ever touched was his own.

    • Khy

      OMGZ PEOPLE GIVE YOUR MONEY SO WE CAN MAKE THIS GAME!

      *Once funded*

      FUCK YOU BITCHES WE OWE YOU NOTHING!

      Let them true colors shine through development team.

      • macdaddymario

        And they told people they were funding a multiplayer game. So, again, the people who bought it aren’t crying about the single player xD. Want to have a reason to complain, that’s cool. Invest in the company, don’t buy the game that way, and you still have an avenue of legit concern to cling to.

        • wehoaks

          Do the zits on your neck applaud your lameass when your greasy fingers type this dumb shit?

          • macdaddymario

            Oh, you’re still here too? That salt is REAL in your case, isn’t it? xD I’ve already shut down your right to voice a line of thought here. Keep on, keeping on.

          • wehoaks

            I mean bahahahahahaha you didn’t do anything but blatantly reveal you work on that shitty game at that shitty company.
            Invest in my sack, twat.

          • macdaddymario

            I wish I worked for them. Know any of them personally? Been trying to get in as a graphical artist for years, been stuck doing web design since High School.

            Again though, you’ve clearly lost your right to complain, when I shut you down. You keep b8ing though partner, I’m sure you’ll get someone one of these days.

          • wehoaks

            This is your pre-lap band ass being done? Okay, Keith. Keep at it. Back to the dickless boards for you.

          • macdaddymario

            Scott, but that’s alright. My Uncle’s name is Keith. My question was legit, know any of them personally? Could really use the in.

          • wehoaks

            I just saw on your mom’s facebook page that you guys are having fish sticks for dinner tonight! Clog them arts Keith.

          • macdaddymario

            Well I mean, you could use my user name to find my Facebook page I guess.. But you’d see the name is Scott. The only Keith I know is my uncle, and he’s a DJ..

            But seriouslly, about that in.. I hate doing graphic design for websites, the people are stupid. Like, even a personal phone number would be great.

          • wehoaks

            “You keep b8ing though partner, I’m sure you’ll get someone one of these days.” you Keith, you.

          • macdaddymario

            I’m just asking about a reference to get a better job. That b8ing thing is about how I made you look like a entitled kid over a game you didn’t even spend money on. But I’ve already ended that conversation.

            For real now, you seem to know a guy on the dev team named Keith, can you get me in touch with him or not?

          • wehoaks

            You dip your fish sticks in caaatchup and eat TAWTS on the side and think it’s a vegetable.

            PS grown men using numbers in words = tiny dick.

          • macdaddymario

            Well, I guess we’ll just have to end our discussion then. I already made you look foolish once, and ended that conversation like a man. I then asked you a legitimate question, man to man, about finding work, but you continue to use school yard insults.

            You have a good time trolling the board.

          • wehoaks

            Invest in reality, Keith.

          • Khy

            Keep smoking that pipe Timmy, maybe those pounds will melt away.

          • Khy

            One squeeze and he’s done.

          • Khy

            Your uncle is a DJ? Lol so being a loser does run in the family.

        • Khy

          “So, again, the people who bought it aren’t crying about the single player”

          Ha. Delusional, obese, and a douche? You are three for three Timmy.

          • macdaddymario

            Timmy?

          • wehoaks

            Yeah, you, you glob.

          • macdaddymario

            So is it Keith or Timmy? Now I’m confused. You both seem to be some sort of conspiracy theory nuts or something. I’m being 100% honest in saying my name is Scott.

            I was also being 100% sincere when asking about that in, since you seemed to know one of them by name. I just made a point to show you both why you look like fools, crying about a multiplayer game, advertised as such, not having single player.

          • wehoaks

            Invest in reality, Keitimmy.

          • macdaddymario

            I do, which is why I’m asking for the contact information of this Keith guy. I’m not getting into the business on my own, that’s the reality.

            So, since no help is coming my way on that front, and my posts prior to this obvious troll have been substantial in context and fact, I’ll be off. You two take care.

          • wehoaks

            So cute that you come here to post for the first time, act like an antagonistic prick then call others a troll. COW.

          • Khy

            It’s what I call all the fat nerds. Don’t take it personally.

      • wehoaks

        But he came here for the first time ever to comment, acted like a cow, was passive aggressive and couldn’t even reply to you directly – because he’s a pussy, and then ENDED it like a man. DUH DONT BE CRASS KHY.

        AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

        • macdaddymario

          I did reply to Khy. And nothing about my post was passive aggressive, it was aggressive. And then I did end it like a man. No school yard insults, no vulgarity, no trolling.. And with clear and precise thought.

          I even offered an avenue of approach where the game didn’t have to be bought, and would have added substance and validity to your concerns about the game and the company in question.

          The only one here that appears “pussy” in nature, was the group who’s idea of refuting a intelligent point, and offered way of substantiating concerns, was to attempt to troll and bait an argument.

          Finally, as I’ve said before, I’ve used this feature to post numerous times. You haven’t seen it? That’s hardly a fault of my own. However a number of posts is hardly equivalent to the quality there-in.

          On a serious note, everything in my original post holds true. When it was a kickstarter, they were very clear it was a multiplayer game. People bought the game knowing this. The ones complaining are the Ines who have invested nothing.

          • wehoaks

            Shh Keith, shh.

    • RidleyScott

      Basically what it all boils down to is, is that you need to shut up, you fucking dork.

    • Nathan Bradley

      If you read all the stretch goals you will see that single player is one of them but it needs another million to reach them. If anything at this point it would have been better to start with single player and have multi player be one of the stretch goals.

  • Creepshow

    Fight of the Week:
    “Gaming nerds” will get a Friday the 13th game, before Friday the 13th “movie nerds” get a film.

      Brilliant.

        Is coming here for looking for work…
        One step above or below Craigslist Rants & Raves?

        • wehoaks

          Shut up, Keith.

        • wehoaks

          Hahaha ignore my last reply. Misread user.

          It’s a step below with Cheetos dust footprints.

          • Creepshow

            Nah, it’s still brilliant.

  • TH3J4CK4L

    Someone give me the rights to make a nightmare on elm Street game,give me team members to organize and I can write & develop a better game than this. Who’s with me.

    • AdamX

      Telltale making an Elm Street game would be epic to be honest. Curious how they do with the Bat later this year.

      • TH3J4CK4L

        Telltale wouldn’t be bad,but I was thinking of a third person with semi ensemble cast rpg elements. I adored the hell out of Dream Warriors and what better way for an elm Street game then with a class based nightmare game. Not too much focus on Rpg,maybe like a survival horror similar to the game sweet home or RE outbreak. Be neat to have a 4 player co op and SP where you’re benefitted by keeping each other alive.

  • AdamX

    I’m hoping this has a quality solo player campaign too.

  • Gluke

    Am I the only one who wants part 5’s (Fake) Jason?

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    *flushes toilet*

  • Cure4Humanity

    Well, that escalated quickly.

  • Nathan Bradley

    until it reaches the stretch goal requirement for the single player campaign there’s not much point in buying it.

  • Daucus Karota

    Part 2 – Sack head
    Part 4 – Clean Mask
    Part 7 – Drowned Roughed up Mask

    At this point I would only welcome a single player mode so we can all get along. 😀

  • Nathan Bradley

    I can see why they would leave the single player out of the game as it would help increase the total money raised, that much makes sense, but at this point it does not look like it is going to get anywhere near the single player campaign, this means sales of the finished game will be lower than they could be if it had single player in it. I suggest they include the single player elements even if it is just to save face. This campaigns a disaster.

    • Nathan Bradley

      I will also add that $40 million opening weekend does not constitute a Kickstarter campaign in any way shape or form.

      • Nathan Bradley

        Something else that concerns me is that on the Slasher Backer page there is a section called Digital In-Game Content(DLC), what alarms me is that all the stretch goals could be placed into this section once the game is released, obviously, this means paying extra upon release for all the content we help get into the game, that includes single player.

        • Nathan Bradley

          One last point I would like to make is that I would like to own this on PS4, If this game remains multiplayer I would be better getting it on Steam because at least then I wouldn’t have to pay a monthly fee to play it. Until it is outright confirmed that there will be no multiplayer any pre order will have to wait. If single player is there I will have a PS4 copy if not I may consider a Steam download.

        • Sky Commander

          Delevopers have said they will not be doing Micro transactions like we see in a lot of games today like evolve and battlefront on their Forum site for the game . The extra content from all the stretch goals reached will be what is included in the game at release.

          • Nathan Bradley

            If that’s for definite then good I can’t complain at that.

          • Sky Commander

            It is. The only reason the Tom Savini Skin and couselor clothing packs and other DLCs are in the preorder page is because they were all content that was a reward in the Kickstarter campaign.

    • Sky Commander

      How is it a disaster? The game has been funded and it’s already made 4 of it’s stretch goals that’s the very definition of a success. If you and others want single player just fund the game it’s only another 744K away which if 12400 preorder a 60 dollar physical copy than bam single player challenge mode achieved.

      • Nathan Bradley

        How is it a disaster? it is not exactly flying to the finish line.

        • Sky Commander

          It’s getting made the way the developers intended that was the finish line. Everthing else is just extra and getting 6 extra stretch goals added in is pretty nice win in my book.

          • Nathan Bradley

            If only the stretch goals were anything to brag about, I wouldn’t call skins anything to be excited about. In all the games I have were you can change the characters costume I never mess about changing them, even in The Sims it’s just hassle.

          • Sky Commander

            Making a game is not easy or cheap so getting some additional kills new skins and alike isn’t a bad thing if it makes the game better. Besides that they said haven’t even done the big marketing push yet and plan on adding other merchandise to the Backerkit like T-Shirts for one the others have been kept underwraps.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Just look at what the top stretch goal is, So, So Cold! adds the liquid nitrogen head smash kill as featured in Jason X for just a scant $5,550,000 sarcasm. The thing is as the series wears on there are not many fans that actually like anything past The Final Chapter and they have already got their fill with this game single player aside. I don’t think the stretch goals are worth much bar the Savini and single player stuff.

          • Sky Commander

            The Delevopers have even said the stretch goals cost aren’t the actual cost of the goal. They are used to fund the next goal as well as the one currently had it’s not just X amount exactly for this goal here otherwise single player mode would only cost about 200K. Also that scant 5.5 million is the cumilative cost of added playable characters, new maps, 2 single player mode, skins, and new kills. Finally most fans I’ve talked to myself included like Friday the 13th up to part 7

          • Nathan Bradley

            We all know that that even from part 1 on all of us pick and choose what we like and what we don’t, personally my favourite is part 3 all though depending on mood I can like The Final Chapter more. As for the cumulative cost 5.5 million is not getting us much is it.

          • Sky Commander

            That’s quite a bit actually that we’re getting taking into account the average AAA Game can cost anywhere from 15-60 million dollars to make.

  • Halloween_Vic

    BAD ASSS!!!! I would love to see the classic original hockey mask look from Part 3, as well as zombified bulgy Jason from Part 7, as well as remake Jason from f13th (2009) say what you want about the movie but his look was pretty awesome!!!! As a bonus I would love hockey sack jason from part 2 or maybe even Uber Jason from Jason X just for kicks lol!!!! I’m soo damm beyond excited for this game!!!!

  • Halloween_Vic

    And since the game is coming out before the new film it would be cool to add his new look from the new film as like a bonus DLC. But I think I’m jumping the gun on that one lol!

  • REC03

    would i be able to play this on my HP laptop using Steam? never tried it before and don’t want to buy a PS4 just for one game as much as i want to play this.

    • Sky Commander

      Yes you can play it on steam, ps4 or xbox one. When you preorder just select the platform you want to use it on here is the link to the backer kit https://friday-the-13th-the-game.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders you can pre order the game and other items like the art book, soundtrack, and a few DLCs here

  • Mark Kaiser

    Being on the kickstarter was a no brainer for me, I mean come on, it’s a Friday the 13th game! I pumped 200 plus into this project early on, and had constant contact with the developers, who honestly seem very genuine as fans, and stalwart towards reputation. I voiced my concerns directly about the inclusion of single player, as not everyone is a fan of multiplayer only games (especially casual old school gamers like myself) and many of us have waited over 30 plus years for this franchise to deliver a top notch game. The Devs were aware of this concern, and told me they are going to do everything they can to have an SP element in game, even if it’s small scenario/levels. The funding would assure more of that, up to the point of a full on SP campaign.

    • Darnell

      yeah i won’t buy it without a single player mode.

      • Mark Kaiser

        Completely understandable, but also remember that support for the project equals better end result, SP included.

  • DarkBree

    2009
    Part 7
    Part 4

  • Mark Kaiser

    The three skins coming standard (implemented at development) for Jason, that I was informed of, were: Part 2, Part 3, and Part 7. Due to backers polls and fan favorites. The next three skins? Anybodies guess.

  • DisqusRaider

    is it me or they been talking about this game for like 5 years now?

    • Mark Kaiser

      About two anyway, under the title “Summer Camp”, which was given the rights to the franchise by Sean Cunningham about half way through development. When Sean said “Let’s do this guys”, the whole team went back to the drawing board to shoot for AAA quality, as the licensing, for this title only, was given gratuitously. So the developers have some heavy hitters looking over their shoulders from the horror entertainment business.

  • Fracassi

    The NES game is OK once you figure out what you are doing. I still play it every once in a while.

    • Mark Kaiser

      I agree, I think an updated version would rock! That game was truly ahead of it’s time.

  • Mark Kaiser

    On a side note, I guess Kane Hodder got one helluva shoulder bruise doing mo-cap for the game, tossing a stuntman across the gym or some such. There’s a guy who really gets into his work. Stay well Kane! We’re not young anymore! 🙂
