To coincide with the Goosebumps movie, developer Wayforward has announced a release date for Goosebumps: The Game. The point-and-click adventure adaptation of the popular children’s book series will release next Tuesday on October 13, 2015 for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo 3DS.
Tom Hulett, Director, wrote a lengthy post on the PlayStation Blog detailing the process of creating this Goosebumps game, an excerpt of which is below.
I’m not satisfied if the game is merely Goosebumps-flavored, or brand-adjacent. I couldn’t sleep if the game felt like anything less than an authentic Goosebumps product with all the hallmarks that entails. It also helped that we were able to visit Sony Pictures to screen the film early on to provide inspiration and insight into the direction of the movie to help set up the prequel story.
