Slasher is a horror game in the style of an early-80s console game, and is inspired by slasher films of the same era (especially ones with a campground setting). Right now it's not ready for testing, but it's coming along nicely.


You and your friends are helping set up for summer camp. But something, someone, is lurking in the woods…


It's got a really minimalist style, like you might find in a lot of 2nd-generation games like Adventure. Controls will be quite simple; four-directional movement, an action button, and a pause button.


Gameplay will be like this: you're on the campground, and, much like the horror movies that inspired it, you will find strange things going on around camp. They progress throughout the night.
