It’s no secret that I’m a self proclaimed horror fiend, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that I’m thrilled by the prospect of Friday The 13th: The Game becoming a reality.
However in order for the nightmare of every camp counselor to rise from the depths of Camp Crystal Lake, Gun Media is relying on the fans to #UnleashJason on Kickstarter. The campaign has been live for 11 days, however thanks to the 7,592 backers and all of the fans that have been keeping the conversation alive, they’ve managed to break the $500,000 barrier bringing the team one step closer to their $700,000 baseline goal.
Hitting the $500K mark not only means that the team is one step closer to making Friday The 13th: The Game a reality, its also the threshold in which Gun media was going to reveal the first batch of their stretch goals.
And they delivered… Continue reading Friday The 13th: The Game Breaks The $500K Barrier, Revealing Their First Wave Of Stretch Goals

Late last year Gun Media, developers of the successful Breach & Clear series, revealed Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp, their homage to the frightening horror film franchise Friday the 13th. It was clear that this was truly a passion project for the team, Summer Camp creator Wes Keltner said “This is my love letter to the Friday the 13th film series.”
The Summer Camp announcement caught the immediate attention of gamers and horror fiends alike, instantly instilling hope that Gun Media would be the ones to finally bring the slasher/ splatter genre to life in an entirely new horror gaming experience. Among the fans that found Summer Camp to be intriguing was Sean S. Cunningham, creator of the Friday the 13th franchise. Because of the potential Sean saw within Summer Camp, he approached the team earlier in the year to begin a conversation that would ultimately lead to the death of Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp as we knew it at the time.
Sean instantly recognized the passion Gun had for the project and the Friday the 13th source material, so much in fact that they decided to work together and overhaul Summer Camp to make the game they’d been dreaming of all along. For the first time in more than twenty-five years, Friday the 13th is returning to the video game world. Gun Media and IllFonic, in partnership with Crystal Lake Entertainment, are proud to announce that Friday the 13th: The Game is set to launch next Fall, 2016.
Digital Tribe Games and Greylight Entertainment are very excited to announce that the psychological horror game, STAIRS, is hitting its final strides of development and preparing for its launch on Steam September 28th.
Word on the game has been sparse since the demo blew up the YouTube scene where major players like Markiplier, ProJared and PewDiePie got their fair share of scares. Markiplier proclaimed the game to be “a perfect example of what horror should be… damn fine work” while ProJared called it “The next big horror game” and admitted “This was definitely messing with my mind.”
The demo they and many others experienced was just a tiny morsel, a small taste of what the final version of STAIRS has become. Everything from the engrossing story, creepy visuals and spine-tingling audio have been taken to levels beyond what has been seen before. If you have headphones, put them on to truly appreciate the audio design and watch the hair on your arms stand on end as you cautiously turn every corner listening, watching, anticipating what might come next.
