Blumhouse Games, the production firm behind M3GAN and Get Out, has recently announced its entry into the gaming market. According to the company, it will work with small game developers to generate more horror-themed content on a tight budget. Blumhouse has assured fans that the budgets for these next gaming projects would not surpass $10 million, in keeping with the studio’s approach to films.
Blumhouse Studios has gotten a lot of attention for its blockbuster horror film ventures, such as Paranormal Activity and The Purge. The firm, founded by producer Jason Blum, has been a pillar of horror, with multiple movies receiving critical praise for their unique take on the genre. Pictures like Get Out have redefined what it means to be really afraid, particularly in modern surroundings. Needless to say, the reaction to the Blumhouse Games news has been overwhelmingly favorable, with fans on Twitter expressing their enthusiasm for new horror content types.
