I have never been blown away by a kickstarter until Friday the 13th started making news.
Jason Voorhees returns, but in a new way. Imagine Evolve, but better, and with one Jason and multiple camp counselors. You play as one of any of these characters, so you could potentially play as Jason as you relentless hunt and murder the campers, or you can try to fight back and survive as a camper. There will be 7 campers and 1 Jason, or as the developers like to say, “One versus seven…”
“Survive at all costs,” meaning that you may not necessarily team up with another player in order to make it out alive. Sometimes, its better to just run and leave them there in order for you to survive.This provides a new element to the multiplayer experience, adding a new depth to the survival horror genre.
Campers will have archetypes based on the films. Mentioned in the promotional vid on the front page of their kickstarter is the different types. First mentioned is the Nerdy type, he may be better at fixing things in order to survive including phone lines for police, electric wires, etc. The Jock may be stronger with a better melee attack and the girl next door may have a better chance to kill Jason.
There is no “right way” to play. They created a playground for you to “make your own mistakes.” This open world adventure has numerous funders and backers, and I don’t blame those for adding to the fund. Rewards range from wallpapers to actually being a camp counselor archetype.
If only I had $10k. 🙁
