Gun Media looks to Kickstarter to fund asymmetric Friday the 13th multiplayer game

Gun Media is getting several key members of the original Friday the 13th movie together to help create a game based on the 1980 slasher film.

The game will feature a 1 vs 7 player multiplayer mode, where one person will play as Jason Voorhees while the others act as counselors trying to survive his attack. The asymmetrical setup will have several classes for the counselors, keeping with the horror tropes featured in the Friday the 13th franchise.

Members of Friday the 13th’s production team that are returning to help work on the game include director Sean S. Cunningham, composer Harry Manfredini, and even Jason Voorhees himself Kane Hodder.
