Horror Legend Kane Hodder Joins Summer Camp Slasher Game
LEXINGTON, KY – February 4, 2015 – Gun Media announced today that Kane Hodder, known for his role as Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th film series, will be the killer in the upcoming game, Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp.
“Honestly, who else could we have chosen for the role of the killer?” Wes Keltner, co-creator of the game at Gun Media, explained. “Several people have worn the mask, but in our eyes, there was only one. Kane has the body type, the presence and demeanor that personify the unrelenting, undying killing force we’re after for Summer Camp.”
Hodder will be working alongside horror FX icon Tom Savini during motion capture sessions to record all movement and every kill found in Summer Camp. Players can take on the role of the killer and walk in the footsteps of the legendary Kane Hodder.
Kane Hodder stated: “Everyone has their own skills. One of mine happens to be killing people on screen. When Wes and the team behind Summer Camp came to me, I jumped at the chance to bring my skills to gamers around the world. Combined with the fact that Savini is on board and Manfredini is doing the soundtrack? This is a no-brainer.”
“When I was being considered to direct the next Friday the 13th movie I was going to bring Kane back as Jason,” said Tom Savini. “Kane and I go way back. I’m thrilled to be working alongside him again. In a way this is better and we get to bring Kane back. He’s the best in the biz…besides, who doesn’t want to BE Kane Hodder? Or better yet, who doesn’t want to be KILLED by Kane?”
Summer Camp will be available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
