Hunt A Killer started in 2016 with a plan to immerse its audience in the world of crime solving. Mixing the cultural fascination of true crime with the game play strategy of a roleplay tabletop game, their monthly subscription box quickly took off with consumers, and the company has grown with more than 3 million game boxes shipped. Now, the Maryland-based company that started with a pair of childhood friends is venturing into the world of publishing as it teams up with Scholastic Books.
Planned to release in spring of 2022, the first book in the Hunt A Killer series will be a young adult novel called Perfect Score by Angelica Monai. It will follow the story of a young sleuth, Jo, who witnesses what she believes to be a murder after moving to a new school. It is currently available for pre-order for paperback and e-book.
That is not all – the interactive game company is also teaming up with the classic young adult detective, Nancy Drew. In October 2021, a special game box called “Mystery at Magnolia Gardens” is planned to release. Players will be tasked with piecing together all the clues Nancy Drew has gathered in order to solve a mysterious poisoning.
Last year, Hunt A Killer teamed with Lionsgate Games to produce a special series based on the Blair Witch universe.
