Doctor Terror's Blog of Horrors and the “Hacktivision” crew – the team who brought you some incredible dream mockups of retro horror games for the NES console we'd all love to play for real – have outdone themselves today with the ultimate 8-bit tribute to the Friday the 13th franchise.
Doc Terror, artist Frank Browning, and musician Sean O'Connor have joined forces again for this ambitious multimedia project entitled Friday the 13th Lives! The Ultimate Chapter.
This dream game obviously blows the real-life NES version right off the map by paying digital tribute to each and every iteration of the Friday the 13th brand... even the TV series is represented!
The mockup includes a massive rule booklet – the most elaborate the team has designed so far – loaded with artwork, maps, characters and references to every aspect of the franchise, from the campers portrayed in the films to the many incarnations of Jason Voorhees.
As always, the only downside to their ambitious endeavor is the sad fact that we can't play this game for real... but maybe someday they'll find a way to make that happen too.
Of course, they've also created a slick trailer for the faux game, accompanied by O’Connor's amazing 8-bit musical wizardry... check it out!
