Composer Harry Manfredini Says He’s Working on a New Friday the 13th Game (Exclusive)

This past weekend during my trip to Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco in Blairstown, NJ for their Crystal Lake Reunion event, I had the pleasure of speaking with Friday the 13th series composer Harry Manfredini about his experiences composing the scores for the iconic horror franchise and the 2017 game.

We spoke specifically about how he composed the score for the Friday the 13th game developed by IllFonic and published by Gun Media and how instead of composing a traditionally structured soundtrack, he created what he called “modules of material” or pieces of music that would dynamically adapt to each player’s specific actions. He emphasized the fact that the game’s “score” is actually determined by the player’s choices, not by him and that each player has a score unique to their experiences and is only audible to them.

During our conversation, he also revealed that he will be working on a new, as yet unannounced Friday the 13th game being developed by a different company than the previous one produced by Gun Media and featuring “more realistic looking” characters. The game will supposedly be done in a different style to that of the previous asymmetrical multiplayer title, says Manfredini. He didn’t know many other details about the game beyond his involvement, but it’s still exciting to know that there’s something new on the horizon for the series.

Friday the 13thFor those who don’t know, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco is the home of the original Camp Crystal Lake and the primary filming location for Friday the 13th, part 1 (1980). If you would like to see a list of upcoming tour dates and events, you can visit the camp’s official site here.
