Last February, we heard the rumblings of a new game based off of legendary villain/slasher Jason Voorhees. The game featured you and your terrified camp counselor cohorts co-operatively fleeing from Jason as he stalks around the "semi-open world" of Crystal Lake, brutally dismembering anyone he meets. The game was originally slated for a near Halloween release of this year. But, as it turns out, making a slasher co-op game takes a little bit more money and time than originally assumed. You just can't kill Jason, however, and the Friday the 13th Kickstarter met its goal a mere few hours ago.
You guys just literally paid for a masked immortal freak to run around ripping off the heads of you and your friends. I hope you're happy with yourselves.
Check out the teaser trailer originally released with the Kickstarter.

The funding came only a few days short of the cutoff point. It seems weird that Gun Media would only ask for a meager $700,000 for an entire Kickstarter funding, but it does appear they've already been working on the product since February. Assuming everything goes according to plans, co-op horror enthusiasts will be running around and getting disemboweled by one of the few characters in fiction who has canonically murdered people both in space and in hell.
