Hunt a Killer is best known for its hauntingly realistic monthly murder riddles that are delivered right to your door. Aspiring armchair detectives can spend hours unraveling this (almost) real-life Clue game at home. But is the Hunt a Killer Blair Witch season for you?
Each game series or “season” is delivered through six boxes or “episodes” that are sent to you one month at a time. Boxes feature a variety of clues and physical evidence that you can use to solve the case — evidence can include case files, witness statements, letters, crime scene images, newspaper articles, and more.
With each box, you’ll try to remove one murder suspect from the list by going through the evidence to unearth vital clues, corroborate alibis, and determine each suspect’s motivation, means, and opportunity.
It’s up to you to figure it out, and if you were a HUGE fan of 1999’s The Blair Witch Project, Hunt a Killer: Blair Witch might just be the monthly mystery game for you.
Overview of the Hunt a Killer Blair Witch season
Hunt a Killer’s Blair Witch season offers a horror story fit for the movies. But while it’s inspired by the film, it offers an independent storyline that’s perfect for armchair detectives of any skill level that are ready to take on otherworldly powers in the forest.
Six of the boxes used to make it, similar to previous seasons of the thriller game. Each month, you will get a brand-new box filled with new clues, documents, and tangible artifacts that will help you solve the mystery.
For Instance, the first box contains various intriguing information, ranging from newspaper articles and images to complex puzzles and audio recordings, all of which fit together to investigate the latest Blair Witch mystery. In Addition, this Blair Witch-inspired horror detective game follows the events of the original 1999 Hollywood film “The Blair Witch Project,” a new story of a woman’s son going missing under unexplained situations unfolds.
