Be my victim
Bloober Team is a studio that knows a thing or two about the spectrum of opinion. After launching its 2016 hit Layers of Fear, the Polish developer fell well wide of the mark a year later with its own version of cyberpunk. We didn’t take to Observer in the slightest, but fast-track two years and the team is returning to what put it on...
Release date announced
We first caught wind of a sequel to Bloober Team's Layers of Fear at the tail end of last year, with a teaser that shows an emphasis on filmmaking rather than oil paintings. Layers of Fear 2 looks to adopt a similar psychological horror vibe, with players this time exploring an ocean liner turned sinister. If you're looking...
Time waits for no one
From fine art to the art of cinema, Layers of Fear 2 looks like a promising sequel to the psychological horror title. It's looking suitably creepy in this new trailer, narrated by Tony Todd, and shows off how the game will make use of various cinematic styles to portray its story. You play as an actor shooting a movie aboard...
Act it out
Surreal horror Layers of Fear is getting a sequel in 2019, this time centring on a disturbed actor as opposed to an obsessed artist. Night of the Living Dead and Candyman star Tony Todd will narrate the title, which is once again being developed by Polish outfit Bloober Team and published by Friday the 13th: The Game’s Gun Media...
We rather liked Bloober Team's trippy horror game Layers of Fear, but we were less taken with its cyberpunk follow-up, Observer. At the very least, the developer comes up with some interesting settings and narratives for its creepy titles, and its next game looks to continue that trend. Project Méliès is a working title for the...
Ongoing lawsuit means no content can be added
A few weeks ago, Friday the 13th: The Game developer Gun Media announced that it was involved in a copyright lawsuit between the director of the original Friday the 13th movie, Sean Cunningham, and the film's writer, Victor Miller. Since the lawsuit is ongoing, no new Friday the 13th products can be...
Voorhees a jolly good fellow
Keep your hockey masks handy, as asymmetrical multiplayer title Friday the 13th: The Game is coming to camp on 26th May. The online-only release will either see you assume the role of predatory anti-hero Jason Voorhees or his prey, as you attempt to annihilate or escape respectively in this eight-player game of homicidal...
Not for the faint of heart
Just like PAX East 2016, Gun Media had a panel for its asymmetrical multiplayer game about everyone's favorite masked killer at PAX East 2017. We've been following the progress of Jason Voorhees' latest adventure with a rather large amount of excitement, and those in attendance this year were treated to a marvellous new...
Friday the 13th: The Game was crowd-funded for the PlayStation 4 last year, and Gun Media has been busy beavering away on the asymmetrical multiplayer outing ever since. This pre-alpha footage shows o
Hackin’ and whackin’ and slashin’
During a panel at PAX East, Gun Media, developer of the upcoming crowd-funded release based on the long-standing slasher film franchise Friday the 13th shared new details about the game. Amid discussion about some of the more gruesome elements of the game, the devs shed some new light on the title's second...
Pull down your hockey mask and grab the nearest cleaver: Friday the 13th is coming to the PlayStation 4 in Fall 2016. But there's a catch: you'll need to help fund it on Kickstarter. In what is becoming a frightening precedent, Gun Media, IllFonic, and Crystal Lake Entertainment have all teamed up to help create an asymmetrical...
Don't lose your head
Speakeasy is what happens when you take a great idea, strip it of all but the very bare essentials necessary for it to work, and then release it at about ten times its worth and hope that people buy it based on the premise alone. If it were free-to-play, you’d feel ripped off. This game isn’t just bad, it’s insultingly...
