Psycho Killer is a fun, hilarious and strategic game in the same vein as Exploding Kittens. It is based on the tropes and cliches of retro horror flicks from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Psycho Killer takes 3 minutes to learn, 15 - 30 minutes to play and can be played by groups of 2 - 6 players. Screw over your friends and see if you can survive the psycho killer!
The long answer. Day to day we are escape room designers and owners of Escape rooms Canberra in Australia. When our business was forced to close due to covid-19, we decided to pivot to creating tabletop games for people to play at home instead of coming to our escape room. And so escape tabletop games was born.
After coming up with psycho killer, we launched a kickstarter campaign and raised over 25k from over 300 backers from all around the world. From June 2020 to November 2020 we were hard at work figuring out how to make our first card game in the middle of a global pandemic and in December 2020, it all finally paid off. Since then we have sold over 1500 copies of the game and have opened our market from Australia to all over the world.
The short answer. We're just a couple of dudes who love retro horror films and making fun stuff.
