Escape from Crystal Lake

Please note, this is not an "escape" game. It's a straightforward point and click with an entire camp to explore.

Started in 2004, this was intended to be the sequel to 2003's Escape from Elm Street. My friend Joe (SleazeRocker) and I paired up to create it, but got in a little over our heads and let the project drop. We worked on and off but eventually progress came to a halt. In 2005 I remade the original Elm Street game, while this one was still on the backburner. Finally at the beginning of 2008 we decided we couldn't let our old work go to waste- so we picked it back up, revamped everything, and finished it out. It worked out pretty well, because we had plenty of time to fix up problems in the game and polish it. Not to mention that music man Josh Kemp expressed interest in creating a custom soundtrack for it, which was an awesome addition to the atmosphere. Enjoy!

Is the knife going trough the masks eye in the loading screen a reference to the friday the 13th NES game?Oh wait Jason looks just like the one from the Nintendo game.

Love it!!! the graphics, gameplay, everything ;D

found this while i was trying to find another game... wha? just find a place to sleep? nooooo. i don't wanna sleep here. sleeping in my car is safer, stupid game! godammit! anyway... (okay, so my car gets busted up... i still think it was safer.)

movement system takes a bit to get used to. it's different, but different isn't always bad, just a little confusing at first, though i would prefer some sort of back arrow to being forced to use the Move Box. liked the paper quest, since it wasn't too hard, esp the reward. might have to play that NES game some time if it's really anything like that. thanks for machete too: guessing it's better than the bat, since one hit stun.

i too appreciate an adventure game that can actually kill you (at least occasionally) rather than one that plays it totally safe. that was pretty damn fun. haven't played Escape from Elm yet, have to do that some time. was actually expecting Freddy to show up in the middle of the game, despite the fact that it seems to take place sometime between the end of movie 1 and 4. anyway, thanks for the fun.

oh, and great music too. that made the experience that much more satisfying.

I remember playing this in my computer class in high school ten years ago because Afroninja.com was one of the websites the school didn't know to block. Brings back memories. Great game

good game if not for that anoying defeat jason minigame , i have a knife i can stab him , i can even run away so why!!!!
