As someone who was shocked, terrified and ultimately thrilled by the movie, and judging on how Funko deals with IPs in their care, I’m certainly hopeful that this game won’t end up hanging off a meat hook.
Funko Games announced the upcoming release of their chilling survival game The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Slaughterhouse. As the 50th anniversary of the popular horror franchise arrives next year, diehard fans and tabletop enthusiasts alike will have the chance to celebrate the seminal franchise with a game that will keep them on the edge of their seats!
In this all-out game, you, the player, have two options – survive or die trying, at least on the gameboard. While the ferocious Sawyer family is played by one player, the other players will play as unfortunate travelers doing everything they can to not be the next victims. It’s a game that lets players feel like a part of the world of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, all without the high stakes.
The nightmare fueling game hits shelves this September. Below are more details on the upcoming product:
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Slaughterhouse
It’s a one-vs-many fight for survival! One person plays as the deranged Sawyer family, dragging victims to their farmhouse and harvesting their meat for a grizzly barbecue.
The other players are the unwitting trespassers, doing everything they can to escape a hideous fate. But in this game, there are no winners—there are only survivors.
Will you make it out alive, or end up on the menu?
Ages 13+ for 2-5 players
WHEN: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Slaughterhouse will be available September 2023. The game will also be available for advance pre-sale exclusively at Gen Con.
