Boredom with the repetitive nature of Friday The 13th ’s endgame turns out to be a common complaint amongst those who say they would otherwise never dream of purposefully murdering a fellow counselor. Currently, there are only three maps in rotation. The mechanic of constantly opening and closing drawers in search of items can get monotonous. And of course there’s the fact that you have to spectate a match for up to twenty minutes after you die. Base stats for counselors and Jason don’t level: Experience is only used to unlock perks and outfits, as well as to unlock different Jasons and different kill animations.
It’s difficult to juggle everything you need to win in The Shrouded Isle , but I guess running a cult isn’t easy. Over the course of my playthrough, I grew pretty attached to my characters. When I found a particularly fervent or obedient advisor, I’d pick them again and again. When I uncovered a rebel, I delighted in sacrificing them. My attachment to these characters also managed to make my losses as satisfying as my wins. Sure, you may not have kept your village ignorant, but that means all the characters you’ve met over the course of the game have broken free. I’m still gunning on meeting our god, Chernobog, and I’m weirdly excited to feed him all the sinners he needs.
