Jason Voorhees

Jason Voorhees

'Friday the 13th: The Game' is set to be released this month.

Gun Media, which raised funds for the upcoming video game via a Kickstarter campaign, is planning to make the violent video game available this month, ParentHerald.com reports, and gamers will have the opportunity to play as villain Jason Voorhees.

'Friday the 13th: The Game' easily reached its target of $823,704, beating the $700,000 it had initially hoped for after Gun Media released prototype footage of the game, and explained it was still in the developmental stage.

They said at the time: "This is a rare glimpse into a game development prototype build that we're using to test and prove out gameplay design concept.

"All of the assets, character models, animations, etc ... are temporary assets, put in place so we can test in a reasonable context. The art, sound effects, music and gameplay are not final by any means. (sic)"

And 'Friday the 13th' franchise creator Sean Cunningham has promised plenty of blood and gore.

He said: "We're not interested in compromising what made the film franchise so popular. We're interested in building precisely what we, as fans, want. The ultimate 'Friday the 13th' experience. Blood, guts, gore, brutal kills, and more."
