Hey all, I just wrote a lengthy article on ideas/suggestions for improving the game's variety and longevity (can be found here). I'll sum up one idea from it here though: allow the male counselors to imitate young Jason. Female sweaters can steal the sweater (which is great) but the guys can't do much but die and hope they become Tommy Jarvis. By placing one pair of scissors on each map in a random drawer, male counselors can help stun/kill Jason. First, a male counselor must find the scissors. Second, they must find a bathroom/mirror. Third, they must remake their appearance (maybe using a button prompt mini-game like car repair). After all this is done, they've got a one-time shot to paralyze Jason. The scissors will also function like a pocket knife if Jason grabs you, although this does remove them from the game. Anyway, those are my thoughts - wasn't sure if someone else already had the idea (apologies if you did). My article contains other ideas like a Kane Hodder costume skin, a water-dominant level, and more low to mid-tier weapon variety. Hope you can check it out!
I'm wondering whether it would be "worth it" to modify the swimming behavior, such that: A counselor who runs out of stamina will either drown (an insta-kill, as if Jason were pulling him or her under) or be required to float-in-place (lie on one's back) until his or her stamina regenerates. I raise the issue because it's a consideration a swimmer must deal with in real life. I suppose a further nuance would be counselors with a "fear" status activated would be more likely to "cramp" (the swimmer's near-equivalent of a runner "tripping")... ...But I'm more concerned with why a lack of stamina -wouldn't- make a counselor drown. (Or at least need to float on one's back until stamina is restored to a certain amount.)
