Ares Games and Pendragon Game Studio announce a partnership to release the survival horror board game Last Friday to the English worldwide market.

Created by Escape Studios and published worldwide by Pendragon, Last Friday is the first co-operation between Ares and Pendragon. Ares Games will produce and distribute the English version of the game and distribute it worldwide.

Last Friday is a hidden movement, hunt and deduction board game, inspired by the popular “slasher” horror movie genre.

Last Friday is about the story of a murderer who died and rose again. In the role of young campers, the players are challenged to survive a long weekend of terror – while one of them takes the role of the undying psychopath hiding in the shadows of the forest.

Designed by Antonio Ferrara and Sebastiano Fiorillo (authors of the horror-themed card game “Stay Away!”), Last Friday is a game for 2 to 6 players, divided into 4 chapters full of horror and suspense (Arrival at the Camp, The Chase, The Massacre and The Final Chapter). Each chapter plays out very differently, as the hunter becomes the prey, then comes back from the dead looking for revenge.

“We are proud to announce the partnership with Pendragon and Escape Studios to publish the English edition of Last Friday. It’s a very fun and tense game, with an original gameplay that allows players to plunge in the suspense of its horror setting. It will be a great addition to our games range,” says Roberto Di Meglio, Director of R&D of Ares Games.

“We have been friends with Ares Games' team for years and finally we found a great opportunity to work together making this interesting project a success all over the world,” declares Silvio Negri-Clementi, President of Pendragon Game Studio.

The English edition of Last Friday is expected to release in August 2016. For more information and to keep up to date about the game, visit Ares Games and Pendragon Game Studio websites, and follow the game’s page on Facebook -
