Gun Media and IllFonic released their hidden gem Friday the 13th: The Game and things quickly went out of control. Crashing servers and excited gamers unable to logon plagued its release. Though the servers were barring some players from experiencing this unique, asymmetrical online horror game, the excellent and interesting gameplay just about saved it.
All out excitement when playing as Jason, teleporting around the map performing gruesome kills and absolutely thrilling when playing as a counselor, Friday the 13th: The Game has a lot to offer. The game works by putting eight people together in a group, one person is randomly chosen to be Jason while the others play as counselors. The counselors need to survive the 20 minute matches using their wits or the items scattered throughout one of the three maps. Jason’s goal is to hunt the counselors down and stop them from escaping. There really is no win or lose, just survive or die. Server issues are still a concern, but consistent maintenance patches are expected.
This independent developer was not expecting this kind of interest for Friday the 13th: The Game. The servers they used just weren’t enough to keep up with all the gamers logging in on the same time. Delivering such a well made game with unique mechanics seems like it was a perfect fit for the modern gamer.
You can find the Friday the 13th: The Game playlist below. The first video gives you a look at what it’s like to play as the famous serial killer, Jason! Stay tuned for more gameplay and maybe even a few private games with the Giga-Knights!
Thank you so much for taking the time to watch! It should be interesting to see where the indie developers take this game in the future. With all the excitement comes a lot of unexpected money. It would be incredible to watch this game grow just as fast as its audience.
