KLAUS (PS4 Review), Does This Puzzle Platformer Leave You Wishing You Could Forget Or Is It Simply Forgettable?

KLAUS has been on my gaming radar for quite some time, I was intrigued by the overall premise of the story where you awake with no memory of who or where you are. Of course it doesn’t hurt that I’m a big fan of the puzzle platformer genre, but this can be a double edged sword as so many in this genre leave me wanting more as they become all too repetitive.

That left me asking the question, does KLAUS leave you wishing you could forget or is it simply forgettable?

Why We Need To Push Friday The 13th: The Game Beyond Their Kickstarter Funding Goal

As we’re quickly approaching the, Friday November 13th, Kickstarter campaign deadline for Friday The 13th: The Game, they’re still $14,995 away from their $700,000 funding goal to #UnleashJason.

At the start of the campaign it appeared as if they would’ve reached their goal within the first 2 weeks, every time I checked the counter it just kept climbing at a meteoric rate. Unfortunately, like most crowd funding campaigns, the second week brought with it a rather dramatic slow down in the volume of pledges coming in. However the pace at which the fans were coming out to show their support and back the campaign has kept them right on track to achieve their goal. At this point there isn’t any concern as to whether or not Gun Media & Illfonic will hit their goal, its really just a matter of time.

Reaching their goal will ensure they’re able to deliver a terrifying, 1v7 asymmetrical multiplayer, Friday The 13th experience. However there is still so much more that the team wants to accomplish, within their Stretch Goals, in order to deliver the complete fan experience that they’ve had in mind. Among the list of their goals they’ve planned; some of the most memorable kills from the franchise, a single player campaign that’ll allow you to alter history by reliving iconic scenes from the series as either Jason (with a 1st person point of view) or a counselor, and of course there’s also the ability to play as the original killer… Jason’s dear ol’ mother.

Even though the team has said they’re considering the possibility of developing the Stretch Goals to become DLC down the road, but there aren’t any guarantees that it will happen. Right about now you might be asking yourself if there’s a possibility that they’ll become DLC, why should we fund the campaign beyond the $700K goal?
