Cosmic Forces, an award-winning animator and game developer, today launched Goosebumps: Night of Scares in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment, producer of the upcoming Goosebumps film, and Scholastic, the publisher of the legendary Goosebumps® book series by R.L. Stine. The first-ever Goosebumps mobile game, Goosebumps: Night of Scares is already giving mobile players goosebumps.
Developed with Free Range Games, Goosebumps: Night of Scares features Jack Black voicing the role of R.L. Stine, characters from the film, as well as the wider universe of monsters and stories created by R.L. Stine. The Goosebumps game takes players through R.L. Stine’s haunted house from the film, each room more frightening than the last, as players collect pages from R.L. Stine’s books while trying to survive the night in a deadly game of hide-n-seek.
Users can play Goosebumps: Night of Scares three different ways: through movement, using the touch screen, or by combining their phones with a compatible VR headset for a highly immersive 3D virtual reality experience, a first for any Goosebumps game.
The game will also include a “Share Your Scare” feature, available for download on Halloween, which uses the camera on a smartphone or tablet to capture players’ “jump scares” for sharing with their friends.
