The Kickstarter campaign currently underway to bring the Friday the 13th and hockey masked slasher Jason Voorhees back to the video game world for the first time since 1989 has reached its funding goal!
Endorsed by the the franchise’s creator Sean Cunningham and recruiting the talents of Kane Hodder (Jason) and legendary make-up effects artist Tom Savini who has previously worked on the films, Friday the 13th: The Game pits seven camp counselors against the unstoppable Jason Voorhees. The camp counselors work together, and sometimes against each other, in an attempt to survive a night at Camp Blood. And if they are extremely lucky possibly even kill Jason.
The game is currently only multiplayer but there is still time to pledge money to help it achieve a single player mode along with other rewards. Follow the link to check out more on the game’s Kickstarter page! Hurry while there is still time left!
