As the popular 80s and 90s book series Goosebumps receives a revitalization with a full-feature movie, it only makes sense that a Goosebumps video game would be soon to follow. The game, titled 'Goosebumps: The Game' is designed for Xbox Live and is ideal for nostalgic millennials looking to relive their favorite horror storylines from their youth.

While you might assume that the 'Goosebumps: The Game' would follow a similar storyline to that of the new film, according to Xbox Live the game is designed to be a prequel to the movie. Users are encouraged to hunt down various fantastical monsters that have come alive to take over the world. The game is set to have a 90s-themed aesthetic, drawing inspiration from the same era the books were written and popularized in.
