Goosebumps: Dead of Night is a family friendly and just downright fun game for those fans of the franchise. A must play on XBOX, PS4, Switch, or PC.
As a huge fan of the Goosebumps book series, I was thrilled when I heard there was a Goosebumps video game coming! When I looked into it more, I just knew it was going to be a love letter to fans! Well Goosebumps Dead of Night is now available for the XBOX One, and I have played it. In fact, you might have even seen me playing it on my YouTube Channel.
In Goosebumps Dead of Night, the best-selling Goosebumps franchise has been re-imagined as a first-person spooky survival adventure game for consoles and PC. Players experience three chapters of stealth gameplay with 3D graphics and chilling AI monsters. I have to admit, the monsters were my favorite part of this game! I love seeing some of my favorite characters come to life in a game like this.
Speaking of my favorite Goosebumps characters, one of my favorite things is the help that you get along the way. Not only do we have R.L. Stine, who is voiced by Jack Black from the films, there is also an appearance from the one and only Nikola Tesla!
Is It For Kids?
Goosebumps Dead of Night is very family-friendly, in my opinion. It is a super fun way for Goosebumps fans of ALL ages to engage with some of their favorite R.L. Stine stories and characters, get spooked a bit, and help save the world from Slappy’s nefarious designs.
My daughters and 7 and 8 and they had a lot of fun playing with me. My youngest was a little scared at first, but quickly warmed up to it. There is nothing like bonding as a family while we all jump and laugh at all the jump scares!
Of course Goosebumps Dead of Night is inspired by R.L. Stine’s bestselling horror series and based off the popular books and movies. This is something that is very obvious from the beginning, and fans of the series will squeal with delight! It was developed from the ground up for console.
There is full 3D movement in the game, which I was super impressed with. It is very seamless and made me feel like I was in the mansion for real! Players explore locations from the Goosebumps books and movies as they search for clues, evade monsters, and solve puzzles to stop the evil ventriloquist dummy Slappy,
There are plenty of puzzles to solve creating several hours of fun! I highly recommend this game for fans of the Goosebumps books and films. Perfect for the whole family to enjoy together — or own their own.
