Re: Save Game Issues (v1.6.16)

We had a patch go out yesterday that had some unexpected issues with save games. We think it only affected a very small number of people, especially because of the super fast responses from our amazing community (thanks BatPrince, JohnOswald & Darkronous The Ascended!) and we were able to roll back to a stable version pretty quickly.

We've used save game files provided by BatPrince and JohnOswald to test the patch more thoroughly and have ensured things should now be super rock solid. The update is now live and there should be little to no issues with it moving forward. If you see something weird after updating, first try closing down the game and re-opening it & it should resolve itself.

If after all that, you still are having issues, or you have lost anything from your save game file, please drop us a line at slayawaycamp@bluewizard.com or comment below and we can do our very best to get you up and running again ASAP.

Thanks for everything!

STABILITY NOW v1.6.17 - (Just Some Bug Fixes)

Hope everyone is having a killer summer, and those camp counsellors are not too much trouble to deal with!

We've posted a new build of Slayaway Camp but its pretty unexciting in the greater scheme, just fixes some weird lil bugs that have been gathering up over time. Hope it makes your Slayaway Camp experience all the more smooth and enjoyable!

  • We've now doubled the coins you get from the 'Faces of Killed 3' Mini-Game, so that's kinda cool.
  • Fixed the 'tap collision' area on the "Select Killer" option on the shelf screen.
  • Fixed issues with walkthroughs not working properly, especially with the "Burn Ward" level, reported by Gamesjunkie (thanks!).
  • Was possible to bring up the Mystery Box after tapping on the TV to unpause a level. This is no longer a thing.
  • Fixed some SFX volume issues.
  • Fixed Steam Achievements, which should also unlock retroactively if you've met the necessary criteria. Especially with "Puppet Master" and "Creep Show" achivements.
  • Increased the saturation on the JimSAW killer's mask, then decreased it again so it looks identical to how it did before this update.
Happy Slaying!

About This Game


Experience a new dimension of gut-blasting terror as an unspeakable killing force of skull-faced killing maims and kills his way through smart-mouthed, over-sexed, substance-abusing young adults. No victim is safe… no law enforcement enforces the law enough… and no animals are harmed… in the summer horror blockbuster smash hit of 1984.

Slayaway Camp is a killer puzzle where you control Skullface, a psychotic slasher bent on slaughtering camp counselors at the title campground. Depicted in colourful voxel graphics, this adorable murderer slides around isometric puzzle levels decapitating, squashing, and perforating his blocky victims. It’s a diabolical logic game that also happens to be a bloody tribute to eighties trash horror.


  • 10 gut-wrenching “videotapes,” plus deleted scenes, for over 200 puzzle levels
  • Traps! Cops! SWAT teams! Land mines! Rotary telephones! Cats!
  • Unlock the NC-17 mode on all movies for even more puzzle insanity (+ censored shower scenes)
  • Starring Mark Meer (Cdr. Shepard from Mass Effect) as “Skullface” and Derek Mears (Jason from Friday the 13th) as “Jessica”
  • Unlock multiple psycho killers, including ones based on cult horror movies such as “American Mary”
  • Discover dozens of spectacular “Gorepack” kill scenes featuring wood-chippers, lawnmowers, Sumerian demon incantations, and more!

Slayaway Camp is the debut title from Blue Wizard Digital, a collaboration between former PopCap founder Jason Kapalka and indie developers Nate Schmold (Cosmochoria) and Ido Yehieli (Cardinal Quest).
