The Voorhees Legacy: Camp Keepalive Available For $5

DRM-Free Death

Kevin Bacon died before I was born, which means there's some sort of horrible Bacon zombie at the head of those dreadful conga lines. Like Johnny Depp after him, one of Kevin's first feature film appearances was as the victim in a soon-to-be long-running horror franchise. They both die while lying on a bed and even though I'm more scared of Krueger, the removal of Bacon's rind is far more disturbing. All of that is a bloody prologue to the meat of the post - splendid turn-based tactical puzzler Camp Keepalive, which is heavily inspired by Friday the 13th and other horror creations, is now available DRM-free for $5. There's even a demo for Windows/Linux/Mac.

Counsellors have skills, which can be used to keep themselves and the wandering children alive, just like the camp's name says. Progressing through levels introduces complex map layouts and increasingly dastardly monsters. I particularly like the predictability of most end of turn outcomes, with behaviours clearly explained, coupled with elements of randomisation, such as where children spawn and how they conduct themselves. Like tiny idiots is how, traipsing straight into the maw of the nearest werewolf or Lovecraftian obscenity.
