Friday The 13th: The Game Reaches The End Of Their Kickstarter And It’s Only The Beginning

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!

Friday The 13th: The Game, An Exclusive Q&A With Co-Creator Wes Keltner

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.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always had a bit of a sift spot for the Friday The 13th series. As much as I enjoyed the campy greatness that was the original Friday The 13th, it wasn’t until the ending that I realized how great it really was.
