Illfonic’s May 26th launch of Friday the 13th: The Game hasn’t exactly been a smooth one. Kotaku reports that the game has been plagued by glitches and connection issues since its release, and that fan dissatisfaction came to a head recently due to Illfonic’s open beta and impending release of their next game, entitled Dead Alliance. The official forum for Friday the 13th: The Game and other sites like Reddit quickly became filled with statements from fans asserting that the developer should fix Friday before moving on to another game. In response to all of this outrage on the internets, Illfonic’s CEO, Chuck Brungardt, posted an official statement on Reddit about the company’s commitment to both games.
Good things come to those that wait. And wait. And wait. IllFonic, the developers behind the much-anticipated but equally buggy Friday the 13th game, have announced a peace offering for its loyal users in the wake of multiple glitches and connectivity problems that have plagued it since is wide release just a few weeks ago. On June 20th, IllFonic is releasing a new update available to all current gamers which will include upgrades like new clothing for the characters and complementary Customization Points (which are used like currency within the game). read more
