Exquisite Crime, the Newest Game from Hunters Entertainment (Alice is Missing, Outbreak: Undead)!


“A surrealist detective storytelling game where Crime is an Art, and you are the Artist.”

Los Angeles (November 2nd, 2021), The latest game from award-winning RPG developers and publishers, Hunters Entertainment (Alice is Missing, Kids on Bikes) is Exquisite Crime. The whimsical surrealistic detective tabletop storytelling game has successfully funded on Kickstarter, unlocking a near limitless storytelling adventure, including character creation utilizing Zenner cards (the cards with symbols on them to test ESP, seen in movies like Ghostbusters or Constantine).

Exquisite Crime comes from the amazing minds of Banana Chan (Jiangshi, Dune: Adventures in the Imperium RPG), and Sen-Foong Lim (Batman The Animated Series – Rogues Gallery, Scooby Doo: Escape From Haunted Mansion). It’s a new, game master-less, storytelling game: where players play as Paranormal Detectives in a surreal world, taking turns transcribing their ‘visions’ to another player who renders their words into a drawing.

“In the same way Alice is Missing innovated the storytelling genre with a text application, we’re looking to empower others to bring their artistic efforts to the table in Exquisite Crime.” says Ivan Van Norman, one of the partners at Hunters Entertainment

Exquisite Crime is reminiscent of games like A Quiet Year and A Fake Artist Goes to New York where by the end of gameplay, there is a tangible artifact that the players have created during the game. This is done by having players draw several “Exquisite Corpse”, which is a classical fine art exercise that involves using collaborative drawing, in this case, to explore crime scenes and solve mysteries ranging from the quirky to the surreal to the downright monstrous. 

Exquisite Crime is currently seeking to fulfill stretch goals, which includes more of its Vision Cards, as well as guest writers for settings to be included in the core game.

Exquisite Crime is set to release to its backers in Late 2022, with an early 2023 release for retailers.
