Friday the 13th: The Game Review

Friday the 13th: The Game is a survival horror video game developed by Gun Media and IllFonic, and published by Gun Media. It is based on the franchise of the same name owned by New Line Cinema. It was released on May 26, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The game is an asymmetrical multiplayer game, pitting up to seven players controlling Camp Crystal Lake counselors against one player controlling Jason Voorhees. It is a semi-open world game, with players able to explore it further.

The game was originally to be developed as Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp by IllFonic in mid-2015. Gun Media was in talks with Friday director Sean S. Cunningham to obtain a license to develop the game, and after a series of meetings, successfully acquired the rights. The game evolved into Friday the 13th: The Game, and funding from both Kickstarter and BackerKit raised approximately US$2.1 million, becoming the 114th most successful crowdfunded project of all time. It is also the first IllFonic game to utilize Unreal Engine 4 after their departure from CryEngine following Project Advena.
