Get ready to collect some monsters on your handheld devices. Pixowl has opened the pre-registration for Goosebumps: HorrorTown. The character-driven simulation game will be launched on May 30, 2018!
Pixowl, the creator of the award-winning world builder game, The Sandbox, is behind Goosebumps: HorrorTown. The upcoming title will be available on the App Store and Google Play. As the name implies, the game is based on R.L. Stine’s popular Goosebumps horror series (which I grew up reading and was one of the influences for my work as a published author).
Goosebumps: HorrorTown has been licensed by Scholastic. It will “take players to HorrorTown to build and manage a quirky town, collect iconic monsters, frighten hapless humans, unlock compelling human characters, and undertake scary missions where young townsfolk spy on monsters to try to figure out what’s going on in their town.”
Here’s the trailer!
“Goosebumps: HorrorTown is all about collecting monsters in a character-driven adventure set in R.L. Stine’s spooky world,” said Arthur Madrid, CEO, and co-founder of Pixowl. “Players who sign up for pre-registration today can be the first ones on their block to collect all their favorite monsters!”
Here’s what you can expect from this game:
Players will build a town and fill it with over 50 signature scary monsters from the series, including Slappy the ventriloquist dummy, Curly the skeleton, the Mummy, Murder the Clown, the Phantom, and even the Lawn Gnomes! Players take on dual roles: gathering a scary assortment of sinister creatures to terrify townsfolk and playing as humans to defend against the monsters by investigating monster activity and exploring the map to unlock new areas and adventures. As monsters, players can scare humans to obtain materials and add new creatures, while as humans they can gather resources, craft items, and spy on the monsters.
In more fun news, Pixowl also launched a “Draw your Monster!” contest on its Facebook page, allowing players to submit their ideas and drawings. The best suggestions will be submitted to a public vote and the winning Monster will be included in the game at the time of worldwide launch.
Pixowl was founded back in 2011 and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, with development studios in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Previous games include The Sandbox, Peanuts: Snoopy’s Town Tale, and Garfield: Survival of the Fattest. You can learn more from the developer’s official website.
