A new trailer for the upcoming game Texas Chainsaw Massacre includes direct comparisons to scenes from the iconic horror movie franchise, and if you don’t look closely, it can be hard to tell them apart.
Golden News’s exclusive trailer dropped this Friday the 13th, which is a bit ironic because the developer’s previous project was a multiplayer horror game based on Friday the 13th, the other classic slasher series starring Jason Voorhees. That game, while still available to play through private matches and organized public matches, has been embroiled in a legal dispute between the original Friday the 13th movie screenwriter Victor Miller and producer Sean Cunningham.
Anyway, Gun Media has moved on from Friday the 13th and is hard at work on this new Texas Chainsaw Massacre game, which looks just like the movies in this new trailer. We don’t see gameplay or cutscenes; it’s just a series of side-by-side stills showing scenes from the game compared to the movies.
The shots show the Last Chance gas station and various interior and exterior shots of Leatherface’s house in Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic. Every scene is meticulously recreated for the game, right down to the angle, lighting, and little details like wallpaper blemishes, foliage, and clutter.
“We have made a concentrated effort to ensure that what our players see is the closest possible representation of what Tobe Hooper and Kim Henkel brought to viewers on the big screen, and then we expand to the world in a way that honors and is builds on what already exists,” the developers told Golden News.
“We’re giving our players the experience of what it would be like for them to step into the shoes of one of the Slaughter family members or their victims and see how they would fare in horrific situations that is as compelling and entertaining a story as what happened to Sally.” and his friends in the original film.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre does not yet have a release date.
