One morning in the middle of a luxury cruise in the Caribbean the charter, William Bonnys, wakes up hungover and makes a morning trip to the sauna. There, he finds the body of Rachel Veinson, the yacht’s stewardess. Captain Javier Rackhams attends to the scene and initially declares the incident an accident. Nevertheless, he still diverts course to Nassau, where the official authorities look over the scene, coming to the same conclusion.

But deckhand Jennifer Hornigolder doesn’t believe this. Rachel would never be so careless as to simply slip and fall in the sauna. Jen believes a murder was committed. She collects evidence and air-mails it to you from Nassau. She needs your help finding the murderer before the yacht reaches port in Florida and the killer potentially escapes for good.

A deductive reasoning mystery game that is great for players of any level! Realistic evidence and documents guide players through a challenging and immersive experience.

Do You Have What It Takes?
Old-fashioned detective work
Use evidence to complete a timeline of the crime and eliminate suspects based on means, motive, and opportunity. Discover the code to a locked tin, translate Morse code, interpret walkie-talkie codes, decipher a cryptic glyph language, and review maps of both the ocean and the yacht itself.

Crack the codes
Hunt A Killer is packed with puzzles and ciphers that are not for the faint of heart. But the reward is well worth the effort. Every puzzle will get your mind working and bring you closer to solving the case!

Every detail matters
Hunt A Killer isn’t just about solving a murder. This game tells an immersive story. You’ll learn about the backstories for a variety of characters, their complicated relationships to each other, and experience everything unfold.

I've played a few of the Hunt A Killer games and this has been the worst simply because the lock we needed to decode was defective and having Read hints to confirm we were right and then mess with the lock which was broken ruined the flow of the game and made it a bit stressful.

My husband and I love murder mystery games and Hunt a Killer probably makes the best ones. We enjoyed this one and all the pieces. We had a good idea early on who might be the killer and were able to confirm and figure out everything with ease. I would say this one was a little easier than others, but we have had a lot of practice. Still very enjoyable and great for date night!

Apps Aren't Always a Good Thing

The premise of the case is cool however it’s terrible when compared to the other Hunt A Killer games. I understand they are becoming more tech savvy but requiring you to download an app to view evidence with the videos buffering or not to playing at all really stalls the gameplay. It’s supposed to be a 90 minute game but it took us 45 minutes just to get through the videos and other items we needed to read on the app (which you also have to make a login account for). There’s no way to view the videos or evidence on your laptop/computer, as the app is only for mobile (and most likely tablets). We don’t normally take breaks when playing but this time was so frustrating, we took a pause and haven’t played it since.

This is our second Hunt A Killer box and it didn’t disappoint! Lots of codes and puzzles to complete and a little tricky to get going, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Perfect date night activity.
