Texas Chainsaw Massacre game studio says it doesn’t want to “make the same game twice”

The makers of Game 13 of Friday 2017 are taking another crack at the form of asymmetric terror with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The new game will follow a similar format to Friday the 13th and its popular rival Dead By Daylight, but developer Gun Interactive is making one big change: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will no longer be a killer hunting down a group of survivors, but three.

on the 14th of February blog post, Gun Interactive CEO Wes Keltner explained the change as a gesture to the original film, and it’s also a meaningful game-changer. “We never wanted to make the same game twice. You either innovate or imitate, and I don’t have to tell you which game is better. Everyone at Gun likes to innovate and push the genre forward,” he said.
