If you didn’t spend your formative years reading the Goosebumps series, it’s fair to say you missed out. Big time.
And this Halloween, we are delighted to have discovered a purpose for artificial intelligence that doesn’t make us want to throw all of our technological devices out of the window.
In fact, keep your phones in hand, because the geniuses at Botnik Studios have created an incredible AI-based choose-your-own-adventure horror series, based on the books by RL Stein.

You simply start at the first page, then choose where to turn based on the options presented to you.
With an AI behind the writing, it almost adds to the feel of the story, with some sentences having tell-tale signs of not being written by a human.
The first story will take about 15-20 minutes to read and it’s well worth it. But, as it says at the start of the “book”, if you’re thinking of presenting this to your younger sibling, maybe think again, it’s definitely not suitable for children.
We can’t help but feel the new premise for a Goosebumps book might just be in AI itself.
