Friday the 13th: The Game has a new behind-the-scenes video available that gives us a look at the motion capture process Gun is using to create authentic brutality in the game.

The kills are designed by Tom Savini, and you can see actor and stuntman Kane Hodder reprising his role as Jason Voorhees in the footage.

The studio also launched its slacker backer campaign, appropriately titled ‘Slasher Backer’ on the official website. It has already raised over $62,000, bringing the game’s total to $885,000.

New stretch goals have been added, too that include more Tom Savini-designed kills, the return of Tommy Jarvis, a single-player mode, and more.

Here’s a look at early in-game footage alongside scenes from the actual motion capture.
