Pamela Voorhees is pissed in this reveal trailer for Friday the 13th: The Game!
That’s right. Gun Media has finally unmasked their next game, and it’s not called Summer Camp anymore. The studio is hard at work on bringing Jason Voorhees back to the virtual world of video games, and since I’m positive you’ve skipped my rambling, I’m just going to shut right up so you can enjoy this fantastic reveal trailer.
While working under the title Summer Camp, it was revealed that the teen slasher game was being made by Breach & Clear developer Gun Media, along with Kane Hodder — the most famous Jason Voorhees — and legendary special make-up effects creator Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, Friday the 13th). Oh, and Harry Manfredini will be composing the original score.
“Honestly, who else could we have chosen for the role of the killer?” Wes Keltner, co-creator of Friday the 13th: The Game told Bloody Disgusting earlier this year. “Several people have worn the mask, but in our eyes, there was only one. Kane has the body type, the presence and demeanor that personify the unrelenting, undying killing force we’re after for [Friday the 13th: The Game].”
“Everyone has their own skills. One of mine happens to be killing people on screen,” Hodder told us. “When Wes and the team behind [Friday the 13th: The Game] came to me, I jumped at the chance to bring my skills to gamers around the world. Combined with the fact that Savini is on board and Manfredini is doing the soundtrack? This is a no-brainer.”
Gun Media is looking to raise $700,000 via a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to help make this 7-on-1 asymmetrical multiplayer game a reality. It will end a month from now, on Friday, November 13th. Naturally.
Friday the 13th: The Game is slated to arrive next fall for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
