Great, now let’s dive into this Hunt A Killer Blair Witch review!
What is the Hunt A Killer Horror: Blair Witch Game?
If you are unsure exactly what Hunt A Killer is, then let me give you a brief overview before we dive into the new Hunt A Killer Horror Game: Blair Witch. Basically think of Hunt A Killer as the main event, and Hunt A Killer: Horror as a subset of the company. Think of a branch off of a stooping tree.
The team at Hunt A Killer are passionate about telling stories that are full of mystery in a unique and memorable way. They do this by immersing their players into the story by delivering monthly subscription boxes full of physical items, documents, puzzles, sound recording, digital files, and more.
Their newest experience is called the Hunt A Killer Blair Witch game that takes place over the course of six “episodes,” or boxes, in the span of six months. Each month, you receive a new box with new clues, documents, and physical items that will lead you further down the path of solving the mystery of a missing person. There are also options to buy in bulk to save some money, which I will discuss later in this review.
This Blair Witch inspired horror mystery game captures the tale of the original 1999 Lionsgate film, “The Blair Witch Project,” where a new tale unfolds of a woman’s son going missing under mysterious circumstances.
If you are like us and have seen the “Blair Witch Project” film plenty of times, then you know that the mystery of the Blair Witch is maybe one of the creepiest stories ever told.
As kids, we watched three filmmakers explore the dark Black Hills Forest as they were overcome by dark forces and the so-called “Blair Witch.” Now we are brought back in and are enlisted to help with a new tale that has been cursed by the Blair Witch.
In this new horror game by Hunt A Killer, players will experience the supernatural forces of the Blair Witch and will receive a new box of clues, documents and ciphers each month that will bring them closer to the truth.
We were so excited to receive our first box and dive into this horror mystery. Here I will share our experience and our journey with the Blair Witch. It’s time to open our first box!
Unboxing Our First Box: Hunt A Killer Blair Witch Review
If you have followed us for a bit, then you may know that we have made our way through other seasons of Hunt A Killer. Therefore, when we heard that Hunt A Killer came out with a new season that was horror focused, we had to get our hands on it!
We received our box in the mail and it was very familiar to the thin boxes we received for other Hunt A Killer seasons, except the box’s graphics were a bit different. In large print was the text “BLAIR WITCH” and it gave us an eerie chill before even opening the box.
After finally getting rid of our goosebumps and opening the box, we were greeted with two introduction postcards, some physical objects, and a large manilla envelope full of documents.
We were immediately drawn in and it didn’t take long for the team to adapt to the different objects that consisted of physical items and documents within the box. We began to hand out all of the different clues and objects for each team member to hold and read.
This Blair Witch box contained 10 items, including:
- A Letter from Rosemary
- A Map of Burkittsville
- Liam’s Notebook
- Magazine Spread
- Newspaper Article
- Liam’s Behavioral Record
- Interview Transcripts
- Missing Person Report
As you continue to read on, we want you to know that we made it a point to make sure this Hunt A Killer Horror review is spoiler free. We don’t want to ruin the fun, so we promise to only let you know our personal experience and game flow during our Blair Witch investigation, without spoiling anything. We will not name the solutions to the objectives we completed or give away any clues.
The box contained documents from the official investigation into the subject’s disappearance, as well as possessions of the missing person, and information on the town.
There is no ‘correct way’ to start in the box, so we decided to start with reading the letter from Rosemary. She explained to us about her missing son, Liam, and how he has been missing for months. She believes that her son is still out there, and she needs our help in finding him.
We were up for the challenge!
We read from Rosemary that this is not a typical teenage runaway, as the sheriff’s office may believe. There is something strange going on here. She stated that there has been a long history of deaths and disappearances that stretches back to the eighteenth century town of Blair.
Liam’s mother believes that there is something mysterious going on with her son’s disappearance and that there is “so much genuine evil in the world, and people choose to believe in boogeymen.” She believes that someone, or something, took her son.
The objective of this box is to find out where Liam was going before he disappeared. Our job was to read through all of the clues and then log on to the website provided by Rosemary and type in what we thought the solution to the objective was so that we can move on in our mystery.
Sorting Through Clues of the Blair Witch Subscription Box
It didn’t take long for us to dive deep into the paper documents and clues located inside the manilla envelope. Kait began reading the documents including an incident report, witness interviews, and a newspaper article.
Branden began looking through the objects that were found on Liam’s desk, including a magazine spread, a journal, and a pen that was placed inside the journal.
I took it upon myself to spread out the map of Burkittsville and start mapping out a few different places that we heard when reading through the clues.
Every object felt so authentic as Liam’s notebook was all handwritten and had doodles and drawings in it that looked like any other kid would do in his or her notebook during class. You can tell the amount of time and effort that was put into every detail of clues within the box.
It really felt like we were working together, trying hard to help this mother who lost her son. We sifted through the physical evidence and paper documents, trying to find clues that were taken from Liam’s possession.
Reading Liam’s notebook gave us insight into his life and his thoughts. We found out a lot from that notebook and we felt connected to the boy that is now missing.
There were even digital documents on Rosemary’s blog that were locked behind a password that we were provided. She had posts about her missing son as well as files and photos that she uploaded in order to keep tabs on Liam’s case.
We began discussing all of the characters involved from the witness interviews and their relationships with Liam. It was crazy the way we were talking about these fictional characters like they were real people!
Completing the First Objective – Hunt A Killer Blair Witch Review
Once we felt comfortable with reading through all of the clues and analyzing all of the documents, as well as the digital blog, we took about a half hour to discuss all of our findings together.
The Game Night Gods team ran through all of the notes we took and looked over the map a few times, some of the text we highlighted in the incident report and witness interviews, as well as the physical evidence that was provided.
After a lot of discussion, we all agreed on the location where we think Liam was heading before his disappearance.
The goal of this first box is to find out where the missing boy, Liam, was heading and to alert his mother, Rosemary, via her blog that she set up. Now it was time to see if we were right.
On our computer, we went to the link provided on the post card provided in the box and typed in the solution to our objective. We were right! It felt so good that we all agreed on that one location and we were right about it!
