Gun Media and Illfonic’s project previously known as Summer Camp, which was meant as an homage to the classic slasher flick Friday the 13th, has secured licensing to use the actual name and characters. That includes that most iconic of horror figures, Jason.

A Kickstarter campaign has launched to support the more ambitious scope of the project, aiming for $700,000 in total. Friday the 13th will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can check out the trailer below.

      not sure how I feel about it. I kinda don't want to see women getting butchered for having sex anymore. Lakeview Cabin is more my style these days for the subject matter.

        I think Until Dawn did it mostly right. It had the typical tropes of a horror movie without fully conforming the "rules" of a horror movie. And by rule's I obviously mean the ones established by Randy in Scream.

          One of Until Dawn's strengths was how closely it adhered to horror clichés in some respects - it meant that when it did stray from the course it was all the more effective.

            I REALLY liked how typical horror/slasher movie have the draw of violent deaths and big body counts, but depending on how you play it, you can make it out with everyone alive, or everyone dead, or something in between heh.

        It's not only women who get killed for the sex. It's all those dirty teenagers, male and female alike.

      Awesome! I've been following Summer Camp for awhile. It's really cool to see them snatch the license for an official Friday the 13th game.

      I don't fund Kickstarter campaigns anymore though. I wish them luck and hope they make it.

      Evolve left a pretty sharp aftertaste, highlighting the drawbacks of asynchronous game design. I hope Ft13 has taken copious notes and is building on its strengths. Good horror games tend to endure the gauntlet of time far better than other genres.

      Do you get to play as Jason? Cause that would be awesome. Getting to go around and find creative ways to kill those little fornicating bastards. Or just hack them to pieces with your giant machete.

        That's just it: you're not dealing with the little fornicating bastards from the movies. You're dealing with other players who've sat frustrated like you through all those horror movies and have honed their attack plans to go off-script and defeat you. Because you are defeatable now!

      Illfonic? Looks like this game will never get made unless some germans come in to help them out
