Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut chopping up the Vita

Cubist horror fans are in for a treat with Slayaway Camp, a debut from Blue Wizard Digital, arriving early November, a couple of years on from its Steam original release. A killer isometric puzzle game, players control Skullface, a cute-yet-psychotic slasher. He rampages around each level, squashing, flaying, and decapitating hapless victims.

The recent trophy listing helped prepare us for this fresh horror, but as you can tell by the trailer, Slayaway Camp is a darkly comic homage to 80s horror movies. Vita owners get a special console-only Butcher’s Cut edition, the biggest and bloodiest version. The game has a 9/10 rating on Steam, and comes hot on the heels of pixel-chiller Halloween Forever. Features include:

  • Base game and the following additional content: Deluxe Edition, My Gory Valentine, HellCamp, Monthly Murderers Series 1 & 2, Supernatural Forces, and Santa’s Slay 
  • 300+ Fiendish puzzle levels to massacre your way through
  • 60+ Killers to cause comical carnage with, including deranged wackos such as Mutant Hillbilly, Kevin, and the killer inter-dimensional clown: THAT
  • 90+ Gorepacks with delightfully OTT kill scenes to shock and entertain
  • Feeling squeamish? Choose PG Mode and play without blood or gore
  • Starring Mark Meer (Cdr. Shepard from Mass Effect) as Skullface and Derek Mears (Jason from Friday the 13th) as Jessica
  • Genuine hair-metal soundtrack by legendary Canadian group GNÜ TRUNTION
  • Created by Jason Kapalka (Peggle, Bejewelled), Nate Schmold & Jessi Ross (Cosmochoria) and Ido Yehieli (Cardinal Quest)
  • Slayaway Camp was selected as an overall winner at the annual Google Play Indie Games Festival
