Friday The 13th: The Game Gets Some Gameplay Footage
Friday The 13th is a slasher film series that has become an immediately recognisable pop culture icon since the original film’s release in 1980.
Since a successful Kickstarter, developer Gun Media has been hard at work on a video game equivalent of this iconic film franchise, which will release as an asymmetrical multiplayer game that sees one player as the supernatural and silent Jason Voorhees taking on 7 counsellors at Camp Crystal Lake — where the original Friday the 13th movies took place.

The game was fully funded and then some — eventually amassing $823,704 in US Dollars, eclipsing its original goal of $700,000. This is the first gameplay that has been shown for the game, although the developer stresses that it is in very early development.
“This is a RARE glimpse into a game development prototype build that we’re using to test and prove out gameplay design concept. All of the assets, character models, animations, etc… are temporary assets, put in place so we can test in a reasonable context,” says a statement from Gun Media at the beginning of the video. “The art, sound effects, music and gameplay are not final by any means and are not indicative of what the game will look and sound like at release.”
Friday the 13th: The Game is expected to release in October 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
