Hello, my name is Jimmy and I’m the founder of Crimibox. We develop and sell unsolved fictional murder cases. Our customers receive the police file, photos of the crime scene and bags of evidence. The goal is to catch the killer.

Not only do our players (we call them detectives) need to use the items in the box, but they also need to investigate online. They’ll need to check the social media profiles of suspects, analyze surveillance footage, find locations through Google Maps, …

Our customers are mostly people who love escaping from escape rooms. We sold more than 4,000 Crimiboxes so far. Our monthly revenue is a bit more than $8,000. Our retention rate (people who bought the first and a second case) is more than 38%.
