Following the success of their Kickstarter campaign, Gun Media has unveiled the first gameplay details from their upcoming horror adaptation Friday the 13th: The Game.

Taking you back to Crystal Lake, the survival simulator sees you fleeing from the hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees. As this prototype, top-down view video demonstrates, you'll have to improvise depending on where you spawn, scavenging the camp in your desperate search for weapons and hiding places. Check it out:

This random element of spawning will add tons of replay ability to the game, ensuring each flight from the dreaded machete will be terrifyingly unique.

Counsellors will spawn in groups of two or three, with the occasional loner. Where you spawn will be dependent upon what character you're playing. You might happen to be hanging out having beers with your friends around the campfire, or maybe you're getting dressed after just having sex. Remember, this is Friday the 13th.

Keep an eye on the Kickstarter page for further updates.

Friday the 13th: The Game is due out next fall.
