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
Last week I was thrilled to share the news that Gun Media will be taking us back to Camp Crystal Lake in 2016. For the first time since the 1989 NES classic, horror fiends and gamers alike will be able to immerse themselves in the terrifying world of Friday The 13th: The Game for PS4, Xbox One, & PC. However the team is taking a completely different approach than it’s side-scrolling predecessor, Gun is developing an experience that’ll leave you feeling as if you’re actually a part of the iconic horror franchise with an online 1v7 asymmetrical multiplayer approach.
In order to create the definitive Friday the 13th experience, they knew they’d need to engage the fans to ensure Friday the 13th: The Game lives up to the same standards that they’ve have come to love from the film series. Their Kickstarter campaign will allow them to create a gaming experience that’ll be scary as hell, while bringing the brutal violence and gore that the fans deserve.
Whether you’ve already backed the campaign or you’re still on the fence, I’m thrilled to share with you an exclusive Q&A with Wes Keltner, Co-Creator of Friday the 13th: The Game, where we take a moment to talk about the early stages of development, in game features, and the Kickstarter.
Hopefully we’ll answer a few questions that you’ve been asking, if not you’ll find that the Kickstarter page is still going to be your best resource for in depth information.

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.
Think you can handle it?
