Latest Updates from Our Project:

Update #12: Pre-Alpha Screenshots, A Message from Kane, and more!
over 5 years ago – Fri, Nov 13, 2015 at 11:45:05 AM

Pre-Alpha Screenshots

We're starting here instead of the standard 'Project Update'. You're about to see a couple of screenshots from our recent internal Pre-Alpha build of Friday the 13th: The Game.

We were going to hold off awhile, but the backers have been clamoring to see the game, this is all for the fans, so we're taking the chance by showing off early work. We hit $655k and figured, everyone earned our trust and the screenshots. Please share them, include our kickstarter link, and show them to anyone naysayers you may happen across.

Thanks for all of the support everyone! Every time you spread the news by sharing our posts, it helps boost the pledges and gets us closer to our goal to #UnleashJason into the world of video games once more.

That flashlight isn't going to save you. Jason's behind you!

Project Update

We're now less than $44k from our base funding goal and we're moving closer to 10,000 backers! Tell everyone you know and share out the new Pre-Alpha screenshots. The weekend is just beginning!  

A Message from Kane Hodder...

Kane isn't just an amazing stuntman and actor, no, he also has a big heart. Listen and let the message sink in. I promise you'll never look at machetes quite the same way again.

Twitch Stream Rescheduled for Tomorrow - Clock Tower PS1

Due to some technical issues we're having with the Kickstarter campaign page, I will have to push tonights live stream of Clock Tower till tomorrow. 

Come back by for a fun Sunday evening and watch me stream a great classic horror title on a retro console! As usual we'll be going back to the 90's for this one and I'll be answering questions about Friday the 13th: The Game while I get chopped up by our good friend Scissor-man. I'm sure Ben Strauss will be in chat as well, and perhaps Wes Keltner will join in too.

The Retro Stream will go up live tomorrow (Sunday Nov. 8th) at 6pm EST/3pm PST. Tune in for the fun!!

 

Wrap-Up

The team cannot wait for the moment we hit 700k! I for one am planning to de-blur ALL of the Stretch Goals as soon as we hit our goal. I will also get great enjoyment in getting to mark off the first 3 stretch goals. Oh how I want to mark those off. In BLOOD! Then the blood must rise up the machete!!! It must be fed!

We have some more awesome stuff brewing. Stay Tuned and thank you! We're almost there!

Update #10: 606k! Over 9000 Backers! New Reward Tier! Physical & Digital Add-ons!
over 5 years ago – Mon, Nov 09, 2015 at 07:56:43 PM

Project Update

We're back for another BIG update with lots of news. Pay attention and read all the details on everything in this one.

We're offiicially over 85% funded, we've gone over the 606k mark and are down heading on towards our 700k goal with $93,517 left to go. As far as backers go... We're over 9000!

Keep spreading the word about the project and sharing your excitement with friends & family. Thank you yet again for all of the amazing support! The team loves you for it and it pushes us to do everything we can each day to make this game great!

With that out of the way, scroll down & dive in for a long one!

New Reward Tier - Design & Name Your Own Achievement/Trophy

We are adding a brand new reward tier that will let you create a part of videogame history! You can have achievement/trophy hunters on all platforms gunning to complete the challenge you designed!

Imagine getting to work with the dev team at Illfonic and Gun to be able to choose what your Achievement/Trophy will entail and then get to name it yourself. Backers at this level will also get special acknowledgement in the game credits under Achievement/Trophy Designers and thus will be able to brag to your friends about it till the end of time (or until you die)!

The new Tier will be added tonight at 10pm EST/7pm PST. Be ready as we think they'll go fast!  

Physical & Digital Add-ons!

We're proud to announce that we'll be producing Physical Soundtrack CD's and Artbooks for the game!  We're also going to allow for add-ons for the digital soundtrack as well as extra downloadble keys. 

Now, this is the part that needs everyone's attention and care. These add-ons can become a little confusing since they need to be accounted for manually by you! All Add-ons are available for anyone pledging at the $15 Tier or above. 

Add-On Instructions: To add any add-on or multiple add-ons to your pledge, follow these steps:

1) Press the 'Manage Your Pledge' Button: You'll find this button above. If you haven't pledged yet the button will read "Back This Project".

2) Keep your chosen pledge selected and then increase your pledge in the "Pledge Amount" Box by totaling up your chosen Tier + the additional amount of each of your add-ons + any shipping and handling that needs to be included for every add-on you want.

3) After the Kickstarter Campaign ends, a few days later a survey will be sent to you and you'll be able to choose the add-ons you wanted and how you'd like the add-on money assigned.

*** VERY IMPORTANT!!! PLEASR READ THIS PART ***

If you have already created a second (or third) account on Kickstarter and selected different Reward Tiers on them, please keep those instead of doing add-ons. If you want to select more add-ons though, use your original account and follow the above steps. 

The Add-Ons!

  • Physical Friday the 13th: The Game Soundtrack CD - $18 (+$4 s/h for U.S. or $9 for International - Est. Delivery Date Oct 2016) 
  • Physical Friday the 13th: The Game Art Book [Hardcover] - $49 (+$9 s/h for U.S. or $19.75 for International - Est. Delivery Date Oct 2016)
  • Digital Friday the 13th: The Game Download Key - $30 (Select from either Steam, PS4 or Xbox One per extra key after the campaign ends - Est. Delivery Date Oct 2016)
  • Digital Friday the 13th: The Game Soundtrack Download Key - $10 - (Est. Delivery Date Oct 2016)
  • Digital Tom Savini designed Jason Voorhees Skin - $6 - (Est. Delivery Date Oct 2016)

Twitch Live Stream TONIGHT - Night Trap on Sega CD

Come by and watch me stream a classic horror title on a retro console! Due to a flood of requests since we've started streaming, tonight we're going to be playing Night Trap on the Sega CD. I'm digging out my own personal copy and an old sega cd system to make this happen.

We'll be going a bit further back in 90's for this one and we'll be sure to field questions about Friday the 13th: The Game as well.

We'll start the stream tonight at 8pm EST/5pm PST. Just a heads up, the link for the stream will be - http://www.twitch.tv/fridaythe13thgame

The team at Gun Media and IllFonic went through your submissions, and after a lengthy debate we've selected Brandon Scott Murphree as the winner of the costume portion of our contest! Brandon's work is apparent with this Jason Voorhees Part VII costume, the very same model we revealed first!

Pumpkin Carving Contest:

We also offered a limited edition collector steel 'machete' pack for the best pumpkin carving, and to be frank it seemed most everyone was very focused on their costumes! We received some great entries, ranging from carvings to paintings, but the team has selected Ernie Molina as the winner of the pumpkin carving portion of the contest! Congratulations to you as well!

Great carve! Ernie is handy with a knife for sure!
