Slashers, Boobies and Teens, oh my! Gun Media’s teaming with horror’s Tom Savini and Harry Manfredini in a game of counselors vs. killer for the new survival horror game, SUMMER CAMP! Who can resist a game with a tagline like “Your sleeping bag will be your body bag”
In Summer Camp, players take on the role of the 6-8 teen counselors…or the killer. Everything plays out from the third-person, and the goal is to survive–or kill, if you’re the game’s walking embodiment of death.
Some of the creative talent involved should excite genre fans, too. Horror effects master Tom Savini (Friday the 13th, Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow) is contributing to the design, and composer Harry Manfredini, responsible for Jason’s iconic cha-cha-cha entrance theme, will be scoring the music.
“They’ve [Gun Media] done their homework, and they are very passionate about the soundscape of Summer Camp,” said Manfredini in a press release. “After our first meeting, I was already brainstorming the main theme in my head. It’s going to be so much fun.”
Every aspect of Summer Camp is ripped straight from the VHS era. The visual treatment to the world mimics the artifacts found on VHS tapes of the 80’s. The tracking button helps. Mirroring Camp Crystal Lake from the Friday the 13th series, players will try to survive in a camp ground setting. Complete with a lake, cabins, and crazed killer who won’t stop until you die a gruesome death.
There is no game play trailers yet but they have released a conceptual trailer to get us in the mood of what we can expect from this unique game.
