YouTube star Joey Graceffa has partnered with Studio71 Games, a Red Arrow Studios company, to help bring to life his vision to expand the “Escape the Night” universe with a new board game.
Inspired by Graceffa’s murder-mystery YouTube series, the “Escape the Night” game is an adventure set within a 1920s estate where an ancient evil lines the halls. The Kickstarter campaign to create the game can be found on the Play Escape the Night website
“It has always been a dream of mine to bring the fantasy-horror world of ‘Escape the Night’ into a new dimension where fans can experience, first-hand, solving diabolical clues, fighting mystifying monsters and thwarting the mysterious man,” says Graceffa. “With the help of Studio71, I’ve been able to create a way for long-time viewers and those who are new to the ‘Escape the Night’ universe to share in a personal passion of mine - board games. I can’t wait for people to journey back in time and dive into the soul-stirring, magical enchantment of the ‘Escape the Night’ game.”
Graceffa’s YouTube series has been viewed over 185 million times and ran for four seasons, making it the longest-running series on YouTube Premium.
For Studio71, the board game joins its previous licensed properties such as the recently released “The Binding of Issac” card game.
