Blumhouse Announces It’s Going to Make Indie Horror Games
M3Gan, Exit, The incantation moviesThe Paranormal Activity Franchises, so much more – Blumhouse Productions has proven itself a master at producing incredibly popular horror stories on screen, while still being comparatively cheap. Now the entertainment company has decided to explore with the development of Blumhouse Games if it can do the same on your PCs, TVs and mobile phones.
The plan is to do to video games what it’s been doing to movies for more than 20 years: be cheap, but scary and good. From the press release: “Blumhouse Games will work with independent game developers to bring their creative vision to life through original horror games for console, PC and mobile audiences. In the spirit of its film business, Blumhouse Games will target indie budget games (under $10M) to enable innovation and push creative boundaries.”
The “original” part is interesting because it implies that Blumhouse Games’ games are not based on his many popular film franchises, but instead use the same creativity that the production side has brought to films by embracing new ideas rather than focus on remakes. But I think “Original” could also include games based on Blumhouse’s “Original” films, if not immediately then eventually. I mean one Dance Dance Revolution-style rhythm game starring M3gan would be a license to print money.
There are no further details yet, but stay tuned.
