CosyKiller murder mystery - monthly subscription box
A murder mystery for one person. Use the evidence you are sent to solve the case. Packed with memorabilia, keepsakes and intrigue...
Fed up of getting only junk mail? Looking for something with a bit more thrill?
Cosykiller is a ground breaking project - it's not a book, it's not a board game, it's not a dinner party - it's a story line, which allows YOU as the detective to solve a murder set in the "golden age of fiction".
Each box is packed with clues, keepsakes and mementos which you need to review and unravel. What is important? What is critical to solving the crime? Who are the suspects? Do you have what it takes to piece together the evidence to make a coherent whole? It's like an Agatha Christie novel but with you playing Miss Marple! No conclusions are drawn; the puzzling and detection is up to you.
CosyKiller is the brainchild of Red Herring Games LTD - award winning specialist murder mystery providers who have been taking the world by storm for over 10 years. They have supplied murder mystery events for small dinner parties right through to conferences and brand activation activities for major corporations.
As with all small businesses, new projects like this can only be brought to life with funding, and we are keen to ensure an "experience" - and want to make this the best it can be. We can write and design the story - as that's what we DO, but to bring that story to life it requires a lot of graphic design, product sourcing and bespoke printing - all of which needs outsourcing - which means upfront money. And this is the challenge we face.
£40,000 of pledges, sounds like a lot - but we only need 133 people to sign up to the annual subscription (and who wouldn't want to get the WHOLE story at a massive discount with extras?) and we've hit the target!
133 isn't a lot. And we feel sure there are at least 133 amateur armchair sleuths out there raring to get their teeth into a brand new murder mystery experience.
We aim to have the first box ready for Christmas - so if you want to be the FIRST to play CosyKiller - sign up now. Our Kickstarter scheme offers the subscription plan at a massive discount, AND you get extras too! It would be a fantastic present for a super sleuth who need a year full of puzzling treats!
Please do share our project with friends you think might be interested. For us - this is as much about raising awareness of a new product in the market place as it is about getting the funding.
As with all kickstarter plans, if we don't meet our target, then you don't have to pay. But we feel sure this is a winner! Help us by pledging!
Risks and challenges
We have created murder mystery events for over 10 years. Jo (MD) even has a crime novel in print - so she's eminently qualified to create the storyline. We've worked with brand activation events where stories are delivered piece meal over 2 days, so this idea is only an extension of our skills.
We already have a graphic design team, artists, printers and webdesigners on board who are able to bring the project to life. And we're already chatting to the National Archives and museums with regards to licensing images and other reproducibles.
In terms of our colonial high tea and other super dooper pledge options - goodness... with over 10 years experience we are over qualified to deliver any of this!
We have set a realistic time-frame of delivery by December for the first box. This gives us time to create the full storyline, graphic design and if it is as popular as we are hoping it will be... we'll also be able to get a mailing house on board within that time.
Our first plot is set in India, and we already have a sourcing firm on board to help us source some super keepsakes for the boxes.
This project carries little risk. We are already established, know what we're doing and used to mail-order. This is just a change in delivery mechanism and tempo for us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
