Slayaway Camp

Where other games are about stopping the bad guys, Slayaway Camp is all about embracing the carnage of the dark side. You're playing a hockey mask-clad villain who's out to kill unsuspecting teens at the titular camp.

The game plays out like one of Square Enix's Go games, with you moving your killer around a board in an attempt to kill everyone you can. There are police that'll try and stop you, and traps you can spring to cause even grislier deaths. And trust us when we say the deaths here are already super grisly.
