The recently announced slasher game, Friday the 13th has had it’s production forcefully halted by Kickstarter game developer, Sean S. Cunningham because of a supposed copyright infringement claim. Kickstarter received a cease & desist letter on Jan. 12, 2015, just days before the announcement of a possible Friday the 13th game which allegedly took many key elements from Cunningham’s slasher game, ‘Last Year’.  However, a few gaming insiders who are close to the Friday the 13th project have stated that Sean S. Cunningham “simply wants to stomp out the competition because his company has been struggling to strike a deal with any big name game developers.”
