The Texas Chainsaw Massacre game promo shows Leatherface and family waiting for a victim

The events of Tobe Hooper’s classic The chainsaw massacre in Texas (see it HERE) took place on 18th August 1973, so it is only fitting that the folks at Gun Interactive and Sumo Nottingham, who are hard at work developing a The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game, chose to share a video preview of the game today. In this video, featured in the Twitter embed at the bottom of this article, we see a victim character jump through a farmhouse window just like Sally Hardesty did in Hooper’s film … but this character isn’t so lucky. Her attackers are not in the house behind her. They are waiting for her outside. And they are the iconic characters from Hooper’s film; Leatherface, the cook and the hitchhiker.

The video ends with a reminder to match this The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game will pit four potential victims against three killers. You can read about the character of the victim HERE. In addition to the killers from the movie, the game will also feature killer characters invented specifically for this game. Battles will take place on maps that are incredible recreations of locations from the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacreas you can see in this video.

That The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game is set before the events of the original film and has the following setup:

When Maria Flores disappeared and local law enforcement seemed to stall in their search, her younger sister Ana teamed up with some of Maria’s friends from college to find the trail. It’s time for you to meet our cast of victims.

The cast that has been assembled to bring The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game characters to life include genre icon Kane Hodder, who does the motion-capture performance for Leatherface; Edwin Neal, who provided the voice of the Hitchhiker, the character he played in the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre; and Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Kristina Klebe (Don’t kill it), Sean Whalen (The people under the stairs), and Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Swap at Night) in unspecified roles.
