Scholastic, a global children’s publishing, education and media company, has announced a publishing deal with entertainment brand Hunt A Killer, best known for its interactive mystery, sci-fi and horror-themed games.

The worldwide deal grants Scholastic the rights to produce a wide range of all language formats including novels, eBooks and audio books. The first title, Perfect Score by Angelica Monai, is set to publish in January 2022. It will be an original young adult novel.

“We’re excited to partner with Scholastic and to see our brand represented on bookshelves across the nation,” says Ryan Hogan, chief executive officer and co-founder, Hunt A Killer. “Our mission as a company is to consistently raise the bar with engaging, interactive stories, and we want to continue to do that through new mediums. Working with Scholastic is a great opportunity to grow the audience for our brand of immersive, entertaining and suspenseful storytelling.”

With more than 2 million games sold, Hunt A Killer is a murder mystery company known for its games. Just like the games, Perfect Score readers can use the designed clues throughout the book – including notes, emails, news articles, school records and more – to help aspiring P.I. Jolene Kelley find the culprit behind her guidance counsellor’s untimely death.

“Our team at Scholastic are big fans of the Hunt A Killer games, so we are thrilled to expand their impressive storytelling to a natural new format,” adds Hogan. “The Hunt A Killer books are perfect for fans of the murder mystery games, as well as young adult readers who love a fast-paced whodunit and innovative new ways to tell a story. We can’t wait for readers to get their hands on Perfect Score!”
