Pixowl Launches Goosebumps HorrorTown for iOS and Android, Bringing R.L. Stine’s Eerie World to Mobile Players
Build and Populate a Town with Monsters and Kids—What Could Go Wrong?
SAN FRANCISCO, May 30, 2018 – Get ready to scare or be scared! Pixowl, creator of the award-winning world builder game, The Sandbox, which has been downloaded over 40 million times, today announced it has launched Goosebumps™ HorrorTown, a character-driven simulation game where players collect scary monsters while building a quirky town, on the App Store and Google Play. The company also released the game’s launch trailer today to give fans a glimpse into the compelling gameplay.
The game, which is based on R.L. Stine’s hit “Goosebumps” horror series and licensed by Scholastic, takes players to HorrorTown to build and manage a seemingly quiet town where all is not as it seems. Players will interact with both the human and monster sides as they collect iconic monsters, scare townsfolk and unlock compelling human characters. They will also complete missions where kids spy on the monsters to discover what’s going on in their town.
“For anyone who’s enjoyed the Goosebumps books, TV series and films, Goosebumps: HorrorTown is a character-focused adventure set in R.L. Stine’s scary but fun world, where you’ll collect your favorite monsters, frighten humans and undertake spooky missions,” said Arthur Madrid, CEO and co-founder of Pixowl. “Come play for free today—unless you want to run the risk of getting on Slappy’s bad side!”
In Goosebumps HorrorTown, players will build a town and fill it signature scary monsters that Pixowl carefully selected from hundreds in the Goosebumps universe, 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 gang of sinister 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.
