I Hope that this idea map gets put into the game.

I dig the idea, but some of the follow up suggestions are just not plausible in a 20 minute match. The cave would almost assuredly have to be replaced with Jason's shack rather than having a mini-world inside the already existing map. Also, getting lost in the woods only worked because it was a 2D level design. It's not really possible design-wise to get lost in a 3D open map and if it was, then everyone would just avoid going into it... The Pamela head attacking to defend herself would also be kinda tough to implement for a couple of reasons: 1) if she kills them, does Jason get the EXP even though he didn't do anything? and if not, then counselors are just going to troll Jason by running to the cabin to die when Jason has them dead to rights. 2) the fighting system is already kinda janky to handle, let alone trying to hit a floating head... I also think it would make the cabin a hotbed of Jason planting traps to weaken players before they even take the mother head on so no one ever gets the sweater. 

I'm all for the map though, I just think the context of how the map plays has to be kept within reason. That said, if they redo the NES Jason to go along with it, they have to make him a +morph considering how the old one could pop up anywhere on the map at any time. This would be a pretty large map too, and I find that bigger maps assist in the counselors surviving a little longer than normal since Jason can't squat on a busy area as easily. So if kept the way it looks in the NES game it would be a pretty popular map as it will help with matches having a little more length and less of a chance of the dreaded "first morph chase" that happens pretty frequently in Higgens and Packanack.

I definitely want this added as a HUGE map, this would be the most fun map in the game to explore. I want the caves and all added.

I like the idea of having the deep forests and cave as mini worlds within the map.

They would have to offer items or escape items in the cave and deep forests though. Especially escape items. Getting lost inside the cave or the deep woods could be fun or annoying, but definitely new. Maybe you could even disable the mini map and world map INSIDE those mini worlds. You can only see people by sight.

One of the main complaints about the main maps is too much draw simulation but honestly...I feel like if more items spawned outside. The complaint would be not enough items spawn inside cabins. Nobody will ever be happy unless every inch of the map is filled with items, including all the drawers. That's what I see.

I suppose the devs should  create more items that could spawn in drawers that don't have as much relevance. Same for outside the cabins, but THEN the complaint would be items aren't significant enough.

As big as they can make it. The more interesting things they test in this map, the better for the game in general.

I'd like  to see a whole 8bit map with pixels.
The walls, trees, everything, even 8bit sounds and music.
But it would be a better idea to put in a virtual NES in the virtual cabin and full F13 game, and an extra trophy for completeing it.

I'd like it to be it's own game mode called "Arcade Mode". There would be two versions, "Classic" and "realism". Classic would be an 8-bit map and realism would be a normal 3D version of the 8 bit map with normal counselors. The goal would be to earn points by fixing things or inflicting damage to Jason (or counselors if you're Jason), etc. and whoever earns the most points wins. Everyone would earn Xp and the top 3 players get additional XP. 3rd places gets an extra 100, 2nd gets 275, 1st gets 500

I would like to see this, but I want other maps more. Like Camp Forest Green or Voorhees House.

^this. The Voorhees House has been highly requested as of late, so it wouldn't surprise me if we get itas one of the last things they put in the game. I'd say in April we'll get single player challenges whenever we get the new engine, then from April to December we'll slowly but surely get Jason X, grendel, a few new counselors (Melissa and Mark, more than likely) and hopefully the Voorhees mansion as a last edition.

I’d like to see a unique Retro Jason intro and map. Maybe him jumping out of a tv from 8bit into reality or something. Different intros would be cool too.

I'd at least like it to be the retro skin in the intro. Since all Jason's use the same intros it wouldn't make sense to give retro his own.

I also believe that they should add a retro map. In the cave I always thought instead of a spinning Pamela head that we get an A.I dead body Pamela from part three who would have half the points as Jason and would combat stance fight (or kill)other counsellors in defense of her sweater,while in the dark cave with the only lights  being the shrine and a flashlight to see .She would fight like someone in Dark Souls.

Just wanted a little extra detail to my idea

The "retro" Jason, or more realistically the NES Jason was a stupid idea and one of the things I think really took a lot of steam out of the game. Its so cartoonish and lets face it the NES game was horrible and a slight bit better than the Commodore 64 version which also was terrible. Why the makers decided to add a purple and green lame homage to an even worse video game into a great game sucking the intense realism they had going is beyond me. But that is just my two cents as someone who grew up with the franchise and liked the idea of a realistic experience at one of the camps via the Xbox game, which is awesome with only a few things that I have to facepalm at. NES Jason being the biggest one.

A merge seemed like the appropriate action here.

I Hope That Gunmedia and Ilffonic create a map based on the NES Game.

i want to also see a sequal to the Nes game included in The Friday the 13th The Game.

Has anyone from Gun or Illfonic gave an official word on if they can create a sequal to the Nes Game.

To be honest, the NES map was really not so much a map as we see in games today.  It was just some cabins, a lake, and some woods.  Nothing worth recreating.

I would love to see this! To be honest, I think they should do away with the retro Jason they have and make a true 8-bit retro Jason as another Jason entirely. The two would be perfect.

I love this idea, so I whipped up a map that shows how it could work:

How can we get The Developers to see this Thread and give us an awnser on gettin a map put into The game based on the Nes Map.

Which would include the Cave and Woods,torches,fireplaces in cabins and cryptic notes on floors of cabins.
