I’m from a generation where as kids, we all read R.L.Stine books. You’d read one and then trade it with your friends in an effort to read the seemingly endless supply of Goosebumps stories. Well, WayForward, the minds behind Double Dragon Neon, are working on a new Goosebumps game. While the timing may seem off, considering Goosebumps is not the cultural icon it once was, it will be released just in time for the upcoming Goosebumps movie starring Jack Black. Actually, this game is the prequel to the movie!
Recapture your youth of adventuring through the world of Goosebumps! Welcome to Dead House was my personal favourite.
Goosebumps: The Game
The walk home from school today is going to be a lot spookier than usual… Your sleepy neighborhood’s been overrun by monsters! Werewolves prowl the woods, Gnomes roam underfoot, and scarecrows walk at midnight. But these aren’t ordinary monsters—they’re R.L. Stine’s famous Goosebumps monsters, released from their books and looking to wreak havoc! You’ll need to use your wits to investigate the surroundings, puzzle out clues, and outsmart the monsters before it’s too late! Survive a trek through your neighborhood, unravel the mysteries of the Dead House, and sneak through the mall after hours; only then can you confront Slappy and stop his plans for revenge! Players beware… you’re in for a scare in the exciting Goosebumps video game, a prequel to the major motion picture in theaters October 16th!
