This year Hunt A Killer paired up with Lionsgate to create a spine-chilling game set in the Blair Witch cinematic universe. They've taken their style of storytelling, realistic documents, evidence, and puzzles and used it to tell an immersive story that is in the "psychological thriller" genre and it works very well. The game still takes place after a disappearance, you still play detective, but this time the usual suspects are replaced by something more sinister. This is the perfect gift for fans of the franchise or horror aficionados.

Synopsis:

  • Rosemary Kent, a woman who lives on the edge of the infamous Black Hills Forest, needs your help to find her missing son. To reunite the Kent family, you must investigate the mysterious forest yourself. Will you face down the horror of the Blair Witch and those who serve her?
