About This Game

A killer puzzle game where you control Skullface, a psychotic slasher bent on slaughtering camp counselors at the title campground. Slide this adorable voxel murderer around hundreds of isometric puzzle levels to squash, flay, and decapitate the hapless victims in this darkly comic homage to 80s trash horror.

History

Originally started as an experimental roguelike collaboration between Jason Kapalka (PopCap co-founder, designer of Bejeweled, etc) and Ido Yehieli (of Cardinal Quest 1 and 2), Slayaway Camp evolved into its current form when they realized that Sokoban-style sliding-block puzzles were enormously tedious... unless they involved gratuitous murder. Then they were awesome. Kapalka’s fondness for cult horror films finally found an outlet that had been denied during his decade at PopCap. They later teamed up with Nate Schmold (creator of cult indie game Cosmochoria) on the visual and sound design, and Slayaway Camp has found its way to Kongregate!

Game Features:

  • 10 gut-wrenching “videotapes,” plus deleted scenes, for over 200 puzzle levels
  • Traps! Cops! SWAT teams! Land mines! Rotary telephones! Cats!
  • Unlock the NC-17 mode on all movies for even more puzzle insanity (+ censored shower scenes)
  • Starring Mark Meer (Cdr. Shepard from Mass Effect) as “Skullface” and Derek Mears (Jason from Friday the 13th) as “Jessica”
  • Unlock multiple psycho killers, including ones based on cult horror movies such as “American Mary”
  • Discover dozens of spectacular “Gore-Pak” kill scenes featuring wood-chippers, lawnmowers, Sumerian demon incantations, and more!
  • Genuine hair-metal soundtrack by legendary Canadian group GNÜ TRUNTION

    - Rock Paper Shotgun
  • "...a game that seems to be all about the unfettered rage of a rampaging monster is actually a precisely tuned brainteaser..."
    - EuroGamer.net
  • "In a multi-component metric, this game is worth paying attention to."
    - SteamSpy
  • "How long have we waited for a game that pits Fredric Jameson’s critique of postmodern pastiche against Linda Hutcheon’s embrace of postmodern parody? In Slayaway Camp, their deathmatch is finally staged. And yet, a question remains: is Jameson represented by the scourge of voxel children, and Hutcheon by the baleful voxel evildoers? Or is it the reverse?"
    - Ian Bogost, Author of ten books, creator of one cow game, and Contributing Editor at The Atlantic
