'Friday The 13th: The Game' Reddit AMA Offers New Info About The Project

Gun Media and IllFonic held their first Reddit AMA yesterday to answer questions of fans and gamers alike about the their highly anticipated Friday The 13th: The Game. It was an interesting back and forth between users and the group developing the game with some great questions asked that have been on the minds of our readers.

We have listed the more interesting and prevalent questions and answers below from the AMA with a tease for something big coming our way on Halloween. We also find out if the game is first or third person and some technical information for you hardcore gamers out there. Also, the most important question of all is answered; if the project is not Kickstarted, will there be a Friday the 13th game? Find out that answer below!

What will happen to the game if the Kickstarter isn't funded? It seems like there's already a lot done, so would you find some way to still release it?

If the Kickstarter isn't funded, we'll do whatever it takes to make sure it gets made. It won't be as big, it won't be as epic, but it will be made and we will make it as fun as possible!

Have you reached out to any of the actors from the franchise (or have they reached out to you) specifically the final girls to be included in the game? Like Ginny Field or Chris Higgins as playable featured camp counselors...

We have not reached out to them, nor they us. It would be amazing to get the chance to talk to them! ;)

Could you guys possibly just have an open beta on console's and pc when the time comes?

We're in discussions with Microsoft and Sony, but we can't make any promises. We are definitely working to make it happen!

Hey, looking forward to the game here. I just had a question about the fear system. How do you plan to implement it? Say, you see Jason and your fear goes up. How does a camper manage that? Is the big "sex drugs and rock and roll" approach going to be used to manage that fear?

You will be managing that fear system by making smart decisions: Stay with others, stay away from Jason, stay in the light, go for objectives and the like. The smarter you play and the more you work to stay alive, the better you'll be able to manage fear!

Are there any plans for integrating VOIP into Friday the 13th? How long do you estimate rounds of the game will last? As a game with such a primary focus on multiplayer what measures are you planning to take to prevent hacking and other player issues (such as verbal abuse afking or leaving games early)? Since the game is primarily multiplayer do you, as a developer have experience with / do you believe you are capable of pushing out regular gamplay updates and mantaining a dedicated server?

There definitely will be integrated VOIP, its a really important part of playing with people. But we also want to make sure that people that play without a headset can have plenty of ways to communicate with other players.

Rounds can last anywhere from 10-20 minutes usually. Time really flies by when you are playing too, it all depends on how well the counselors or jason is playing. Some matches can be over very fast, some can last quite a while.

We've done a lot of work with hacking on games so we have plans there but don't discuss our plans with security to the public for obvious reasons, as far as other game specific issue we will have a strong support system waiting to deal with troublesome players. It is important to keep in mind that this isn't a competitive game, so I don't anticipate a wave of players trying to be "#1", but there always will be some and we'll certainly be keeping an eye out.

Absolutely, we have tons of experience in this area and our careers at IllFonic have mostly been focused on multiplayer games.

Is this game 3rd person or 1st person?... OR both! dun dun dun...

We've confirmed that we're 3rd person, but we are exploring first person perspective for the single player challenges! Gotta show off Jason!

why dont you guys drop a video with ign or machinima on halloween to increase crowdfunding?

We have plans for Halloween! Stay tuned!

Will there be a spectator mode for downed counselors? Perhaps something highly cinematic with film grain, music and awesome camera angles?

Yes. Absolutely. We don't want you being bored, and it will totally be cinematic. Can't wait to show it!
