Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle game will be delisted next week

The developers weren’t able to renew the license, so the Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle game is going to be delisted next week.

Friday the 13th: The Game wasn’t the only Friday the 13th franchise-inspired game that had to stop creating content due to the copyright lawsuit between original Friday the 13th director/producer Sean S. Cunningham and screenwriter Victor Miller. That lawsuit also stopped puzzle game Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle from releasing new updates back in 2018. The lawsuit is over, Miller holds the copyright to the original Friday the 13th in the U.S. and is involved with the upcoming Peacock series Crystal Lake… but none of that has helped Killer Puzzle‘s developer Blue Wizard Digital keep their game going. They have announced that they weren’t able renew the Friday the 13th license with the licensors, so Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle will be delisted next week.

The sad news was posted on the game’s official website: Due to the inability to renew the license for Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle with the licensors, we have been required to wind down future sales of the game. As of January 23rd, 2023, Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle be removed from the storefronts across all platforms. The game will be coming down from all storefronts (Steam, Apple App Store, Google Play Store, Nintendo Switch eShop, Xbox One Store, and Playstation Store) on January 23rd, 2023. Once the deadline dates have passed, the Game and DLC will be unavailable from the storefronts. We have been assured by all platforms that players who have already downloaded / purchased the game and made in-app purchases within the game will continue to have access to this content. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this has caused. All of us at Blue Wizard are absolutely crushed as well—F13: Killer Puzzle was a game we were so incredibly proud to share with you for the past 5 years.

In Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle, which has over 100 levels with such settings as Camp Crystal Lake, Manhattan, supermax prisons, and snowy ski resorts, players control Jason by sliding him around an isometric puzzle level to attack his victims, either directly with a variety of weapons, or indirectly, by frightening them into environmental hazards like campfires, bear traps, and woodchippers. Gruesome reflex-based “Kill Scenes” punctuate the puzzling as you progress through multiple episodes, from classic campgrounds to more exotic locations such as Manhattan, abandoned amusement parks, supermax prisons, beach resorts, outer space and more.

If the game sounds like fun to you, you should make sure to grab it before it gets delisted next Monday.

Have you played Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle, and are you disappointed to see that it’s going to be delisted? Share your thoughts on this one below. I’m still sad that Killer Puzzle and Friday the 13th: The Game weren’t able to continue releasing new content because of the copyright lawsuit.
