- Friday the 13th Game -- Tommy Jarvis Will Be a Playable Character
The developers behind Friday the 13th: The Game have confirmed that the character Tommy Jarvis will appear in the new game as a playable character portrayed by Thom Mathews.
As reported by RelyOnHorror, Jarvis will work alongside the camp counselors as they try to stay alive as Jason tries to kill them. As you can see in the announcement trailer, Jarvis' famous taunt ("maggot head!") is in here, while the likeness is based on Mathews. He was the third actor to play Jarvis, following John Shepherd and Corey Feldman.

Friday the 13th: The Game received more than $800,000 in its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Its original goal was $700,000, and it met stretch goals to add three different kills.
In other news, the game was recently delayed to 2017, in part to give the team time to make a single-player campaign. People who preorder the game early through its beta--get more details here.
