Damn, Jason Isn’t Playing Around In ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’

  Like a lot of you Ego-dudes, I’m sure, I love myself a little vintage horror. Obscure old Japanese movies, Johnny Depp’s first film appearance (complete with shit-tastic 80s hair) in A Nightmare on Elm Street, the original Universal monster movies… it’s all good. What could be better than a bit of Bela Lugosi getting his Dracula on on a Monday morning? Nothing, that’s what.  

As such, I’ve kept one ogling eye firmly on Friday the 13th: The Game. A wary eye, natch, as we all know what tends to happen with licensed games, but I just can’t look away. It’s like rubbernecking at an awful accident on the highway.

What I mean to say is, we’ve been following this one since its Kickstarter beginnings some time back. It got quite a following from hopeful souls like me, becoming the 106th most crowdfunded project of all time. Couple that fact with all the ‘we’re-going-to-be-totally-faithful-to-the-film-and-create-the-kind-of-badass-game-we’d-want-to-play’ PR spiel that the dev team have been spouting, and there’s a lot of expectation here.

The game’s scheduled for release next month, giving Gun Media just a little more time to get us all hyped up. To make us believe that licensed titles aren’t all barrels of wank. So, gents, the best way to do that? A super-gory compilation of Jason kills from the game. Here’s the spangly new trailer, fresh from PAX West 2016, via GameSpot.


Damn, some of those are going to smart in the morning.
