Get Totally Immersed

Hunt a Killer is quite the production to put on. High-quality, hand-crafted clues get you lost in the fictional world and make you feel like you're solving a real murder.


We created an entire fictional town, Chestnut Falls, just for this new season of Hunt a Killer. But we gave it every detail necessary to make it feel like a real town in Illinois... including a fully detailed map.


Explore hand-crafted police records. What's a clue? What isn't?


Get to know the entire graduating class of '98 with the authentic Yearbook that comes in your first box.


Authentic newspaper clippings will make you wonder if this really is a game...


The insignia of Chestnut Falls High School. Just your average, small town high school... right?


This is all highly secretive and confidential. Any leaks could alert our killer that we're on their trail. Maintain the integrity of the investigation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Hunt a Killer is quite a production to put on! The high-quality materials that make everything feel so "real," the incredible, mysterious story you travel down as you follow the clues...But still, our goal was to keep it as accessible as possible to as many people as possible to spread the joy and fun.

That's why subscriptions start at just $25 per month.

And you can cancel any time. But fair warning: It's addicting! Once you start, you too will eagerly wait for your box each and every month to keep the tale alive.

Who creates the physical clues & stories?

We assembled the most gripping, thrilling, true-crime-loving writers and curators we could find.

Their specialty is hooking you in...Keeping you on the edge of your seat...And creating an experience so immersive - it sends shivers down your spine.

That's why our members tell us time after time that it feels so real - and they can't get enough.

How many stories are there?

One of the best things about Hunt A Killer is the fact that the fun never ends. While each "series" is 6 episodes (6 months) long... the story never ends. It's like a gripping TV show that keeps going - only you're the star of the show, Detective.
