CHANGES TO SEASON PROGRESSION (A Message from Hunt a Killer)

January 2018


Thank you for your continued support and feedback. This is YOUR game, and we are constantly using your input to improve the Hunt a Killer experience. Two improvements are highlighted below. Expect many more changes in 2018!

First, we are introducing online Episode Recaps to replace the printed end-of-season recap. This new tool will give you better guidance, allowing you to check your progress at the end of each episode. The new recaps also feature a spoiler-free format. Check them out at Second, we are adding season titles to replace season numbers. From here on...

  • Season 1 = "Awakening"
  • Season 2 = "Transformation"
  • Season 3 = "Initiation"

Why are we making this change?

  1. To cut down on spoilers.
  2. To reduce our Internet Search Results footprint.
  3. To offer a variety of material for you to enjoy. 
  4. And to give you a more unique experience. 

How will this affect you? 

If you are currently playing "Awakening", your next season will be "Initiation". 

If you are currently playing "Transformation", your next season will be "initiation". 

Will the story/game change

No. Your story/game will not be interrupted. You will not be missing anything. Your experience will be enhanced, the Hunt a Killer universe will grow, and we will continue to provide an engrossing, informative, and entertaining game. 

Thank you for your membership, thank you for your time, and as always, Happy Hunting. 


The Hunt a Killer Team


from Baltimore (PRWEB)

Today, Gnomish Hat, the parent company and creators behind Hunt A Killer, the fastest-growing thriller subscription in the world, launched Empty Faces, an immersive paranormal investigation, bringing its popular interactive concept to horror fans everywhere.

"The decision to develop Empty Faces is fueled by Hunt A Killer's tremendous success and exponential growth since launching only one year ago," said Ryan Hogan, co-founder and CEO of Gnomish Hat. "By adding a horror investigation to our lineup we feel we can offer our existing community something new yet familiar while also capturing new players that have an affinity for frightening paranormal activities. Our unique combination of original storytelling and interactive entertainment continues to position us as leaders across several verticals and we are incredibly excited to expand our portfolio as we move into 2018."

Each monthly episode is shipped directly to the member's doorstep and is filled with bizarre objects and disturbing messages from an indescribable evil. Faster and more action-packed than Hunt A Killer's steadily evolving adventure, Empty Faces presents additional solvable mysteries and accomplishments in each episode. Ideal for subscription lovers, horror and thriller fans, movie buffs and interactive gaming enthusiasts, Empty Faces debuts with an enrollment period limited to a coveted 2,000 members to start. Those interested in joining the scariest subscription series can submit an application to secure their exclusive pre-order membership now at Memberships are flexible and start at $30 per month.

Season one's investigation is spread across five eerie episodes and takes members on a horrific journey to see if they have what it takes to survive. Members can play alone, in a small group or as a collaborative team by using the private Facebook community in order to solve the saga.

"We have an amazing team of imaginative minds and fiction horror writers that have been able to create unbelievable experiences in such an authentic way," said Derrick Smith, co-founder and head of creative at Gnomish Hat. "Unlike escape rooms and watching a scary movie that can only evoke a sense of fear for a brief moment in time, Empty Faces administers a shock factor continuously, every single month. It puts the control into the player's hands empowering them to explore and assume as they please."

To meet demands, Empty Faces plans to increase the number of members accepted within the coming months. The first episode is estimated to ship in January 2018 following the initial pre-launch phase. With positive momentum, Gnomish Hat expects to tap into aligned genres, test various story models and partner with leaders in the television, film, literary and streaming fields.

(Spoiler: Season recaps are coming!):

Hunters, based on recent feedback from all of you we identified some enhancements to the Hunt A Killer membership, and we want to share one specifically.

An overwhelming majority have requested season finale closure.

So we're going to do it.

Beginning October 11th, we're adding season recaps to episode 8. Don't fret, if you're passed this episode you will still receive the insert in your season two package next month.

These writings will give you season one closure without spoiling season two.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via the recent survey. We read each one (over 2,700 this round) and develop creative solutions for common trends.
