8-BITS FROM CRYSTAL LAKE: FRIDAY THE 13TH LIVES! THE ULTIMATE CHAPTER FOR THE NES

Friday the 13th is upon us once again. It’s an unofficial holiday for Horror fans and creepoids alike. We love the strange and unusual. We ourselves are strange and unusual. Today we are going to bring you the strange, unusual and retro. To celebrate Friday the 13th, 2013, the release of Crystal Lake Memories (the best damn documentary about a lil guy named Jason Voorhees and the franchise he built) and the release of the complete Friday the 13th franchise on Blu-ray we’ve taken it upon ourselves to create a little bit of the old 8-Bit Juggernaut. That’s right. HACKTIVISION (the team of Frank Browning, Sean O’Connor and Dr. Jimmy TERROR) have created a new faux 8-Bit Video Game for the ENTIRE FRIDAY THE 13TH FRANCHISE. That means every movie. That means the TV show. That means the original NES video game.

Take some time to enjoy the fake trailer for the whole damn thing below.


FRIDAY THE 13TH LIVES! 
THE ULTIMATE CHAPTER 
for the Nintendo Entertainment System.


Please share this around and enjoy with friends. We hope it makes your Friday the 13th more fun and helps you to remember some of your fondest moments in F13 history as well as what might have been.

Below find the entire game manual for the release as well as packaging and promotional items. This will detail some gameplay, some of the mini-bosses you’ll find in the release as well the campers (with which you should be somewhat familiar).

MANUAL


























STILL GALLERY OF SOME IMAGES USED IN THE GAME:













ABOUT THE VISUAL ARTIST, FRANK BROWNING:

Born and raised in southern West Virginia, Frank Browning's passion for art developed at a very young age.. He would spend time recreating his favorite images from his beloved Marvel comic books while "Empire Strikes Back" played in the background. He continued to develop his talent throughout high school, then took that talent to college. He graduated from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, with a bachelor's in graphic design.

Frank has a broad range of talent and has designed for the likes of Spencer's, Hot Topic, FYE, HBO, Capcom, Epic Games, DC, Warner Brothers, and Jim Hensen Company, to name a few. Many of his designs can still be found in Spencer's stores today.

Frank currently works for the West Virginia Department of Education and enjoys doing freelance design projects. He loves all things horror, Star Wars, and Marvel, but his favorite thing is spending time with his wife and 6 week old son.

ABOUT THE MUSICAL ARTIST, SEAN O’CONNOR:

While it is not entirely certain from what time or space the creator of our 8 Bit audio clip comes from one thing is for certain, he was born with a light gun in his hand. The Konami code actually appears in his DNA and we hope that someday... he gets his Gameboy.  Sea O'Connor is an exceptionally talented musician and friend who has performed in such musical acts as Leema Mountain, Me Hate Me and Melatonin. Feel free to check out his musicHERE and support him like you would any set of finely crafted breasts. We hope to work with Sean on future 8-Bit renditions of the movies you love, the games you deserve on the system that was made specifically for people who like to stay up all night long with a 3 liter bottle of Mountain Dew and a bag of Cheese Puffs.

Special thanks to John Squires of Freddy in Space for some collaboration concepts and allowing us to use a few of the stills created for a previous incarnation of the FRIDAY THE 13TH ANTHOLOGY

  8. I believe that the NES games could have and should have been better. Damn LJN! The best Nightmare on Elm street game I have played is an old DOS program, and I haven't played a good Friday the 13th. I know there are people out there who do mods, and I have even played a moded version of the legend of zelda called "Zelda C" and it is pretty good. Have you ever thought about going that route? taking the old rom file and just redoing them completely?
