A decent (but not the greatest) horror mystery...
**NO SPOILERS** I just finished the Blair Witch - Season 1. It's a decent mystery revolving around the disappearances (abductions?) of children from a local family living near the infamous forest & town from "The Blair Witch" movie. The game involves reading through clues and solving puzzles and ciphers to continue the story. It's not their best mystery game and certainly not their scariest. I would only recommend this if you're a fan of the movies OR if you enjoy PG-rated ghost stories.
What I liked:
1) The props and documents included in each episode are very well done and high quality.
2) The codes and puzzles are very challenging. I found this game to be harder than most other Hunt A Killer titles I played. The online hints were needed and done in a way that it doesn't give everything away. (I'm not ashamed to say I used it 3 times over 6 episodes.) Yet this game can easily be completed over a weekend.
3) The additions to "The Blair Witch" lore are very well done and fans of the movies will approve. This game is a nice continuation to that legend and I would recommend watching the original movie before you start.
4) The digital content (as well as the voice acting) of the episodes (the mother's website, the SuperNeutral podcasts, etc) are also very well done. Note: you will need a computer AND a smartphone to play this mystery. I would also buy a cheap UV flashlight.

What I didn't like:
1) Some of the game, while challenging, is dense and convoluted. The puzzles require more luck than skill to solve. And once solved, MOST of the coded messages add little to the game or story. There's really no payoff.
2.) The actual mystery itself & the plot of this game are pretty weak. Episodes 1 & 2 are the best but the story seems to lose steam after that. It also seems like they really didn't know how to end the story so again the payoff isn't there.
3.) If you buy this as a box set and complete the game in 1-2 sessions (like I did) you will miss out on the weblinks that are sent to you containing the Super Neutral podcasts. I would recommend spacing the game out over 3-5 nights making sure to look over your email spam folder.
4.) Finally and most importantly, this is supposed to be a HORROR GAME but I never felt the scary atmosphere that its going for. Perhaps if the game had more creepy videos and photos it would have added more of a horror element and a sense of dread. I would say this is just a PG-rated ghost story in the end. Decent but could have been great...and really scary.

Great Saturday night fun time
Me and my wife have been working on the one. It is very challenging and a lot of fun. I would recommend this one.

Great Game with Unsatisfying Ending
My roommates and I looked for something fun to do during the pandemic.  This game did not disappoint - it was tremendous fun.  It was like going out to a new escape room every week, at a reasonable price.  
There was so much evidence.  Some parts which were critically important, some parts which were fun to solve but had nothing to do with the eventual answer, some parts which were incredibly difficult, some parts which were very hard to read, but most importantly it was all fun to solve.  
Because there were four of us, I can say that there was something for each of us.  I for example am terrible at cryptograms but others in my group were great at them, so each of us helped out at times. Then I was good at reading maps and they weren't great at that.  The items that came with the game were VERY high quality, a lot of fun and really made this a real experience. It even came with a hat that I wear so - free hat.
My only disappointment was the ending.  I'm not going to spoil what the ending is, and parts of it were great, but it just...ended.  I wasn't sure if the game was over and we kept waiting for something else to happen to say the game was truly over.  We kept trying to see if we were supposed to do something else.
I wouldn't let that detract from the overall experience.  Ten out of ten experience only slightly ruined by the flat ending.

A Great Introduction to Hunt a Killer!
As a fan of Blair Witch who had been eyeing Hunt a Killer for awhile, this box set was too much to pass up. I was thrilled with the engaging story and puzzles and ciphers. As this was my first experience with Hunt a Killer I think the difficulty was just right for someone dipping their toes in the water but who also enjoys a challenge.

One thing to note, spoiler free, there is one instance in particular that certain text is particularly hard to make out, if you need glasses to read or have trouble reading in low light then don't be afraid to use the hints!

All in all, having finished this Season about 20 minutes ago, I am thoroughly satisfied with my experience.
