The world is looking for its next great party game, and a handful of horror legends from the haunt industry are ready to unleash “OH, the HORROR!“: a card-based, adults-only game where anything can happen…and death is always right around the corner.
Nate Stevenson (formerly of Halloween Horror Nights) had the idea for a horror-based card game rolling around in his head for quite some time. Unfortunately, he never had the time to pursue it as his work schedule was too demanding, and “OH, the HORROR!” was looking to be nothing more than a back-of-the-mind passion project.
In a crazy turn of events, Nate, Patrick Braillard (also formerly of Halloween Horror Nights), and Jacob McAlister were all dealt the COVID-19 Job Killer card. But that didn’t stop creative juices from flowing. Patrick had been actively involved in other haunted attractions, while Jacob was fresh out of designing artwork for Disney’s official Jungle Cruise Adventure Game. The pieces were falling into place.
Finally finding the time to explore the idea in depth, Nate quickly pitched the game to Patrick. Already well-weathered creative teammates, the two were kicking ideas back and forth within minutes.
Jacob was the natural choice to illustrate for the team and was brought on board very soon after. As the team collaborated and created together, the project took on a life of its own and has grown into a horribly hilarious monster.
