Last October we shared the Kickstarter information for Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Game, it was quite the success to say the least as by the end of the crowdfunder they had raised almost a million dollars.
Of course it’s easy to see why the game caused such excitement among the vast legion of horror fans and gamers. I mean Friday the 13th: The Game has the blessing of not only the original 1980 film’s Director, Sean S. Cunningham (He literally gifted Gun Media the rights!), but features a score by Harry Manfredini, has the legendary Tom Savini acting as a guide as well as Kane Hodder who portrayed Jason in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, and Jason X.
Now we have an almost five minute preview of the Alpha Build of the game…and can watch as Jason stalks the counselors of Camp Crystal Lake and their gruesome end when he catches them. Make sure to listen to this with headphones as the sound design is incredible!

I think I would have bolted from under that bed and ran for the door myself, when Jason was taking care of the radio in the next room. I’ll be very curious to see in the final game if it’s so easy for Jason to teleport around the map…knee-jerk reaction says that it will not be like what we saw in the video. Perhaps when Jason has accrued enough fear from those hapless counselors he can trigger a special ability?
I guess we will find out when Friday the 13th: The Game is released this Fall!
