San Francisco, CA, September 24, 2015 – Cosmic Forces, an award-winning animator and game developer, today announced its production of Goosebumps: Night of Scares, a mobile game, 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 point-and-click survival game will give players goosebumps and is due for release in time for the PG-rated film, coming to theaters on October 16, 2015.
Goosebumps: Night of Scares is a multi-platform mobile adventure that will feature Jack Black voicing the role of R.L. Stine, characters from the film, and also the wider universe of monsters and stories created by R.L. Stine.

The game is being developed with Free Range Games, a team that has worked on titles including Tony Hawk, Spider-Man and Shrek. The Goosebumps game takes players through a spooky house full of terrifying monsters. Each chapter gets tougher to play as new monsters are introduced.
