Scholastic, Sony Pictures Consumer Products and game company Cosmic Forces have revealed Goosebumps Dead of Night.
In July 1992, Scholastic introduced the Goosebumps book series by R.L. Stine with Welcome to Dead House.
More than twenty-five years later, Goosebumps is one of the best-selling children’s series of all-time, with more than 350 million English language books in print, plus an additional 50+ million international copies in print in 24 languages.
The series made R.L. Stine a worldwide publishing celebrity (and Jeopardy! answer) while the Goosebumps TV show was the number-one children’s show in America for three years and episodes can still be seen on streaming site Netflix.
Goosebumps, a feature film, based on the book series by R.L. Stine, was released in theaters on October 16, 2015, and opened at #1 and generated over $150 million at the global box office with the sequel being released on October 12, 2018.
This game is inspired by the film series and by R.L. Stine’s best-selling Goosebumps book franchise, this spooky first-person survival horror game is expected to launch this summer on PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC.
Slappy the Dummy has stolen the pages from classic Goosebumps tales, unleashing a nightmare of legendary monsters who are out to get you.
Discover the missing pages and avoid getting caught by terrifying creatures like the Graveyard Ghoul, Lawn Gnomes, Annihilator 3000, Murder the Clown, and the Werewolf of Fever Swamp to banish these baddies back to the page.
Explore infamous Goosebumps locales for clues, sneak around and hide from monsters, and solve Slappy’s devious puzzles, but beware you never know what’s lurking around the corner.
It’s up to you to stop Slappy’s evil plan to unleash his monsters across the world… don’t worry, you’ll have some allies along the way like Nikola Tesla, Dr. Brewer and R.L. Stine, voiced by Jack Black.
Reimagined for consoles and PC, Goosebumps Dead of Night builds on the spooky stealth gameplay of the hit mobile VR game Goosebumps Night of Scares with new enhanced HD Graphics, additional chapters like Dr. Brewer’s twisted Conservatory and the menacing Tesla Tower, an expanded Stine House with more puzzles, five terrifying new monsters with improved AI, and more.
The game also features HD Rumble functionality, touchscreen support and gyroscopic controls on Nintendo Switch.
For the faint of heart, beware—you’re in for a scare!
