Gun Interactive and Sumo Nottingham are working together to bring us a new video game inspired by the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, and it has been announced that three of the playable maps in the game will be the Family House and the Gas Station – as seen in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie (watch it HERE) – as well as a Slaughterhouse. Now the game’s developers have released an image that gives an overview look at the Family House map. Overviews won’t mean much to me until I’m moving a character through this space, but it’s interesting to see nonetheless.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game is set before the events of the original film and has the following set-up:
When Maria Flores went missing, and local law enforcement seemed to stall out in their search, her younger sister Ana teamed up with some of Maria’s friends from college to pick up the trail. It’s time for you to meet our cast of Victims.
Matches of the game will pit four potential victims against three killers. You can read about the victim characters HERE. In addition to the killers from the movie – Leatherface, the Cook, and the Hitch-hiker – the game will also feature killer characters that have been invented specifically for this game. Matches will take place in maps that are incredible recreations of locations from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as you can see in the video embedded at the bottom of this article.
The cast that has been assembled to bring the game’s characters to life includes genre icon Kane Hodder, who is doing the motion-capture performance for Leatherface; Edwin Neal, providing the voice of the Hitch-hiker, the character he played in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre; and Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Kristina Klebe (Don’t Kill It), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), and Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night) in unspecified roles.
