New Images And Info For Friday The 13th Themed Video Game 'Summer Camp'

Last November it was officially announced that a Friday The 13th themed video game called Summer Camp would be produced by Gun Media and creator Wes Keltner. The development team has already enlisted the help of Horror icon and Friday The 13th alumni Tom Savini along with legendary composer Harry Manfredini and Jason Voorhees himself, Kane Hodder to create a Summer camp themed slasher video game in the vein of the Friday The 13th films. This will be the first in a series of themed slasher games, but it is no secret that Summer Camp is an ode to Friday The 13th.

Thanks to IGN, new details have arrived to explain how the game will look and feel as well as some new screen shots of the highly anticipated game.

Summer Camp sets a group of Teen Counselors against a player-controlled stalker called The Killer. The Killer utilizes advantages in mobility and an arsenal of weapons to hunt other players across the seemingly-tranquil Camp Forrest Green. He or she will also be able to harness the environment of the camp to use against the Teen Counselors. The Counselors are a group of 6-7 players relying largely on stealth and evasion to survive. The Teens will need to monitor the level of noise they create and search for weapons to fend off The Killer while locating escape vehicles. The Counselors can work together as a team or split up to tackle the situation alone, and the creators promise both paths have risks and rewards. Beyond the presence of these iconic locales, the developers hope to evoke the spirit of 80s slasher flicks by simulating the low-budget lighting and equipment conditions used to create these movies. The game engine is being designed to replicate the grain, color, and blur typical of a cheap film recording and subsequent VHS transfer.

The game is set to hit PC, Xbox and Playstation in the near future. What do you think so far of this awesome looking game? For more, check out summercampgame.com.
