The 'OMG WOW EVEN MORE BUGFIXES!' Update (v1.6.7)

Hey Killers! We wanted to make sure to squash a few smaller but annoying bugs that have been plaguing users.

We're going to be launching on Android tomorrow so hooray! Also a huge update to iOS (and Android Launch of course) where we are finally able to bring those much coveted deleted scenes and all their flavour text. Originally we were concerned that Apple would think the flavour text was just too flavourful and would banish us from the app store forever, but apparently this was misguided.

If you've been holding out for the Android version, we want to thank you from the bottom of our blackened shrivelled hearts for your patience, and hopefully the launch tomorrow will bring you everything you ever dreamed of and more.


Changelog for v1.6.7
  • We fixed a bug that was causing the game to forget everything it knows when you hit the rewind button in the final scene of My Gory Valentine. The game spent a solid few weeks talking to a shrink and has rediscovered itself and should no longer have any issues with rewinding on that scene.
  • Party's Over actually fixed now. Like, Actually this time.
  • Using the options menu you can now switch the exit portal to something different. Like maybe a cute little Kitty Face!! Or.... a demonic magic summoning circle? Or just leave it as a Pentagram. Whatever.
  • Made the "Level Complete" sound effect a little louder. It just wasn't feeling confident so we took it out for lunch and to a few stores downtown so it could pick out some new clothes. It chose a pretty sweet pair of shoes that it paired up with a brand new sun hat that looks just stellar. It's now feeling a lot better about itself and, as such, has been emitting itself at the proper volume.
  • In Slayaway Camp 6 NC17 Scene #2, there was a victim who refused to die. This actually caused the puzzle to be unbeatable, which was disappointing to anyone who breathes oxygen and plays Slayaway Camp. We've now fixed it so not only does the victim die when they should, but we also made sure that every waking moment while they are alive, they feel a pain and misery so deep that they longingly ache for death.
  • In the final NC17 level of Bloodbath Beach, you can glitch the game to make a sweet innocent little kitty cat kill-able. This bug was found by one of our favourite mass voxel murderers, JohnOswald, and you can only imagine the depths of depravity in this man's mind to be able to unearth and exploit such a richly evil, heinous bug. Oh.. hold on one second... we're just getting word that the cat in that level is actually a huge a$$h*le, terrorizing the other cats in the neighbourhood on a nightly basis, often sending them to the vet for stitches and/or removal of broken claws stick in various parts of their faces. So, actually, JohnOswald is something of a modern day hero. Our hero.
  • Oh and there's a secret somewhere.
  • Plus, I guess we also did a bunch more general optimizations and luscious deep tissue massage. So relaxing.

Happy Camp Camp Slay! Buy Slayaway on Android tomorrow! Buy it on iOS Today! BE HAPPY! SUMMER IS HERE! CAMPING SEASON IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!

Slayaway Camp - We Need Chinese Localization Help!

Hey Killers! We wanted to get in touch because we've been working hard on getting Slayaway Camp localized for a Chinese audience. We've got some text back but we have to be honest... It all looks like Chinese to us! (get it? Because it is...)

If you or someone you know understands Simplified Chinese (like really, not just using Google Translate - we can do that on our end and the results are pretty hilarious), it would mean the world to us if you could give this a quick review and let us know if the localization team is hitting the mark with the localization?

You all know Slayaway Camp probably better than we do! Any help you can give us to make sure we're not bringing a subpar product to Chinese speaking audiences would be a massive help! Skullface may even grant you an extra few minutes of life!

Without further ado, here's the text, with the english and simplified chinese localizations. What do you think?

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


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!



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).
