Even though the Kickstarter campaign for Friday the 13th: The Game came to a close, on Friday November 13th, this is only the beginning for Gun Media & Illfonic as they successfully funded the game. Thanks to the fans and the 12,218 backers of the campaign, they were able to slaughter their $700K goal and raise a total of $823,704.
“We already had funding to make the original concept of the game,’ said Gun studio head and co-creator Wes Keltner. ‘The moment we became Friday the 13th: The Game, we knew we had a responsibility to give every single Friday the 13th fan (ourselves included), the game we’ve all been waiting for. To do that, Kickstarter was the answer, and fans have delivered!”
For those of you that might not have been following the campaign that closely, here’s a quick recap of; the stretch goals that were unlocked, what’s next for the stretch goals that weren’t funded, and a very early pre-alpha look at actual gameplay in action!
