Friday The 13th: The Game reaches kickstarter goal

The Friday The 13th: The Game kickstarter has been fully funded, so we’ll be seeing Jason Voorhees in 2016.

Thanks to a bunch of super-sadistic backers, we’ll be able to live out our slasher fantasies as Jason Voorhees in Friday The 13th: The Game.

The ambitious kickstarter project successfully reached its $700,000 goal last night, and currently sits at $736,000 with only 42 hours of funding time to go.

By helping the project reach its goal we unlocked the Sleeping Bag kill move, which sounds a tad sadistic.

Similar environmental kills are part of the project’s future funding goals, including Mirror Smash, Head Crush and Rip Your Heart Out.

There are only 42 hours left for the campaign to run, so passionate fans will have to act fast if they want to reach these.

Personally, we love the idea of a single-player survival challenge mode, where we assume you must survive alone against a relentless Jason Voorhees.

Friday The 13th: The Game is set to be an asymmetrical multi-player experience, where players control the camp counsellors of Camp Crystal Lake and serial killer Jason Voorhees.

The infamous, machete-wielding serial killer will be tasked with hunting down other players, and they must do what they can to survive.

The game is currently in development for PS4, Xbox and PC, aiming to release before the end of 2016.
