You and Your Friends Are Dead – Interview with Wes Keltner, Co-Creator of Friday the 13th: The Game – CBP032

Friday the 13th: The Game

Friday the 13th: The Game


We were all bummed out to hear not too long ago that the new Friday has been pushed back yet again, but right now there is a video game in the works that is EASILY The Force Awakens for horror gamers everywhere — Friday the 13th: The Game. They've hit their initial funding stage through Kickstarter, but by the look of early screen shots, Friday the 13th: The Game is going to make the old Nintendo version look like Q-Bert. We were fortunate enough to be joined by Wes Keltner, one of the co-creators of the game from Gun Media, to chat about the progress of the fund and what to expect, at least at this point, from the game itself.
