Goosebumps: HorrorTown, which is based on R.L. Stine’s hit Goosebumps®book series and licensed by Scholastic, invites players to build and manage a seemingly quiet town where all is not as it seems. Players interact with both the human and monster sides as they collect iconic monsters including Slappy the ventriloquist dummy, scare townsfolk, and unlock compelling human characters. The game has been a hit with players, with over two million downloads and over 100 million hours spent building towns and scaring humans!
In the new Haunted Halloween event, the residents of HorrorTown are happily decorating their houses and planning their Halloween costumes. But Slappy is preparing an unexpected—and terrifying—surprise for everyone. Using the well-meaning attempts of two boys to create and advertise their business, Slappy will bring the town to the brink of utter chaos and destruction—or, as Slappy likes to think of it, “the best Halloween ever!”
“Since launch, Goosebumps: HorrorTown has provided players with an ever-growing assortment of characters, monsters, and adventures set in R.L. Stine’s scarily fun world, and our new Haunted Halloween event is the biggest addition to the game yet,” said Arthur Madrid, CEO
In Goosebumps HorrorTown, players take on dual roles: gathering a gang of mischievous creatures to terrify townsfolk and playing as youngsters who investigate monster activity. As monsters, players can scare humans to obtain special materials and add new creatures, while as humans they can explore the map to unlock new areas and adventures, gather resources, craft items, and spy on the monsters.
