SUMMER CAMP IS HELL - INTRODUCING HELL CAMP!



An all-new crew of unsuspecting counsellors-in-training are invited to a counsellor training session in preparation of their summer at HELL CAMP. It’s not long before they learn that the one hosting the camp training is none other than sinister Skullface, now in HOLY ANGELIC FORM. It’s also shortly thereafter that they discover the horrifying discovery that the training session is located in the fiery pits of HELL.



Not a single unsaved soul stands a chance against Skullface who disregards the entire camp training plot-line to slice and dice his way through all nine circles of hell and make his way to the poorly decorated bedroom of Satan himself. Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings and this time... the bell tolls for thee.



In celebration of the HORRORS of HALLOWEEN, Hell Camp is a FREE UPDATE to all players of the base game today! Hell Camp will emerge from the depths of hades once you've completed the first 3 movies in Slayaway Camp!

NEW KILLERS!

In addition to the horrific update featuring puzzles from the 9 circles of hell, we are also unleashing some new killers! Holy Skullface will automatically unlock as the star of the new movie, plus both Alien Beast + Pumpkin Face are now shoved uncomfortably within the confines of the Mystery Box. Use those hard-earned Skull Coins to unlock them in the new update—all 3 come with their own hilarious Gorepack special kills!





SLASHBACK VIDEO!



Also in support of Mystic Museum and Ryan Turek, we've created a super special Killer Kode (slashback) that will unlock the "TapeHead" killer featured in the "Slashback Video" Horror Movie Art Gallery + VHS Video Store installation in Burbank California.

If you're in Burbank, check out the installation it features tons of horror memorabilia, art, and in a setting true to the period: an ultra rad nostalgia-laced video store.

THANKS!

That's all for now, but stay tuned because in just ONE WEEK, we drop our brand new Monthly Murderer to players signed up at http://www.slayawaycamp.com. This month the campers will want to make sure they've got their wrist rockets handy!

Until then, enjoy those flaming pits of PUZZLE HELL!!!

Love,

Skullface + The Slayaway Team

P.S. We leave you with this final Halloween treat: a special promo video recorded by our amazing community members: Mr. Candyworm and Batprince!

SOME BUG FIXES!



Hey Killers!

Wanted to post a special update today that fixes some bugs and prepares for something special to be coming very soon. Here's a quick rundown of what you can expect:

  • BUGFIX: we had this weird issue where sometimes after a bonus kill the game would go to a black screen. This was due to the darkness of the universe coagulating in your computer device causing its internal circuitry to not know what to do next with its life... We input some code to help your computer come to terms with the meaninglessness of the universe and so the black screen no longer happens.
  • NEW FEATURE - Randomize Killer! You can now select an option from the options menu that will randomize the killer you're using every time a new level begins. Do this when you have a bunch of killers and want to add some more surprises to your already surprisey life! (Had to pull this for now as it was having some issues and we didnt want the other fixes to wait while we fixed those issues.)
  • NEW LOCALIZATION! You can now play the game in Simplified Chinese. We're working on getting the store page text converted as well, but for now feel free to switch to Chinese in the language selector!
  • NEW FEATURE: "Message Window" - we've added a special notification window that appears on the shelf screen with any important announcements, game updates, new content, or emergency information. It's pretty integrated right into the game, basically the Tombkeeper pops up to tell you a thing. We have setup a one-time announcement for the PS4/XBox version just to inform players who don't normally check the forums, etc. Once you have seen a message you wont be shown it again, so no worries about eternal spamness or anything horribly horrific like that. We'll also try to use it to give you some special holiday killer kodes from time to time etc. :)
  • LEVEL CHANGE: Movie 8 - Deleted Scene #2 (changed layout of level)
  • PLUS: More bug fixes, optimizations and SUPER ULTIMATE SECURITY updates to make your time in Slayaway Camp more enjoyable and stable across the board.

These update should now be available! Keep your eyes peeled for a very special announcement coming on Friday the 13th... that's next week! (http://www.slayawaycamp.com)

About This Game

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.

GAME FEATURES


  • 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!
  • Genuine hair-metal soundtrack by legendary Canadian group GNÜ TRUNTION

EXTRA KILLERS!


If you love slashing but feel like your personal style of death delivery isn't properly represented, we've got some additional killer packs you can purchase for a teeny tiny cost. Purchasing these packs immediately unlocks the full set of killers on your killer shelf!
