With a new film on the horizon, it looks like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise is having a complete renaissance! It’s just been announced that Gun Media, the makers of Friday the 13th: The Game, are working on a video game based on The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. What’s more, they’ve released the first trailer for the game as well!
As you can see below, they faithfully recreated a wide variety of details from the original 1974 film. This includes the iconic farmhouse, radio broadcasts, music, and even Leatherface himself. It’s absolutely soaked in the 1970’s aesthetic that the original is known for.
Here’s what Ronnie Hobbs, creative director at Gun Interactive, had to say via Bloody-Disgusting:
“It’s no secret that the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is probably my favorite horror film ever created,” says Hobbs. “Having the chance to really dive into the world of this IP with the team from Gun and working with Sumo to bring this vision to life has been almost surreal. I can’t wait for everyone to see more of what we’re doing.”
It’s clear they intend to give their video game based on The Texas Chain Saw Massacre the same amount of detail as their Friday the 13th game. Darren Campion, executive producer at Sumo Nottingham, gave the following statement:
“We’re incredibly excited to finally reveal what we’ve been working on here at Sumo Nottingham. To be the first to truly bring the world of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre to life was an opportunity that could not be passed,” he noted. “The cult classic has been terrifying and spellbinding people for over 40 years and we’re thrilled with how the game is developing, we cannot wait for fans old and new to become part of this truly authentic experience.”
The game based on the iconic horror movie franchise will be released on both PC and current-gen consoles.
