The teenagers of Slayaway Camp thought the summer’s nightmare was over… but, it was only in the middle. When Santaland’s jolly St. Nick is hideously murdered, it’s clear that crazed killer Skullface has returned! And no minimum wage part-time elf is safe in this holiday mall massacre. Remember, he knows if you’ve been naughty or nice… so be DEAD for deadness sake.
The original Slayaway Camp, released for Halloween on Steam, has already garnered critical raves fromtrillions of celebrity YouTube and Twitch content creators with silly names like Cinnamon Toast Ken and Markiplier; boasts 98% positive Steam user reviews; and has received glowing press coverage like:
“Two thumbs up! It’s really fucking fun!” -Jim Sterling
“Brutally cute! Drenched in good-humored gore” – Hardcore Gamer
“The most successful ode to slasher films ever… 9/10” -RelyOnHorror
“I can’t stop playing this!” -Eurogamer
“How long have we waited for a game that pits Fredric Jameson’s critique of postmodern pastiche against Linda Hutcheon’s embrace of postmodern parody? In Slayaway Camp, their deathmatch is finally staged. And yet, a question remains: is Jameson represented by the scourge of voxel children, and Hutcheon by the baleful voxel evildoers? Or is it the reverse?” – Ian Bogost, Author of ten books, creator of one cow game, and Contributing Editor at The Atlantic
