There's an official Friday the 13th game coming from the makers of Slayaway Camp


There’s a new, officially licensed Friday the 13th game on the way, and it’s being developed by Blue Wizard Digital, maker of the wonderful Slayaway Camp.

Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle, as the game is known, was announced at the tail end of last year. However, two things of note have happened since then: firstly, it soft launched on iOS in the US this week. Secondly, its global release date has now been confirmed as….yes…Friday, April 13th, when it will launch on iOS, Android, and Steam.

Slayaway Camp, for those unfamiliar, is brilliant, playing out something like a sokoban sliding block puzzler – albeit enthusiastically themed around classic 80s horror movies.

Each isometric, single-screen puzzle drops you into the shoes of a faintly-familiar-if-not-quite-official cinematic serial killer, then tasks you with plotting a route around the stage (you can only move in the four cardinal directions) in order to off every bystander in sight.
