R. L. Stine’s book series is getting a new game adaptation, and it will cover the complete current console generation.
Goosebumps launched nearly three decades ago in 1992 – the children’s horror novels quickly rose to fame, which is why R. L. Stine’s work then got turned in several TV/series adaptations (the series ran from 1995 to 1998, followed by two films in 2015 and 2018, respectively). There were games as well 1996 – Escape from HorrorLand, PC; 1997 – Attack of the Mutant, PC; 2008 – Goosebumps HorrorLand, PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS; 2015 – Goosebumps The Game – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch (this port launched in 2018), PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS, PC; 2015 – Goosebumps: Night of Scares, mobile/mobile VR; 2018 – Goosebumps HorrorTown, mobile) before the current one.
„Slappy has escaped from the pages of Goosebumps and reunited his family of Monsters. It’s up to you to stop Slappy’s dastardly plan to unleash the Goosebumps monsters into our world. To trap Slappy back into his book you’ll have to solve puzzles and outwit the Goosebumps monsters. Can you survive Slappy’s wrath and defeat him?
Hide from monsters summoned from classic Goosebumps tales while exploring and solving puzzles. As you find the missing pages from R.L. Stine’s book, you’ll need to navigate the twisted and overgrown conservatory to confront Dr Brewer and climb the heights of Tesla’s Tower to stop Slappy’s plans,” the website (https://www.goosebumpsgame.com/) says. Jack Black will also be part of the game – he previously was involved with the films, too.
Goosebumps: Dead of the Night feels a bit like a „junior” Outlast, meaning it could be entertaining for children on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime this summer. The Steam page, however, lists a June 12 release date, while the trailer itself did not mention this date. Who is to believe here…?
