New Titles Launch Under the New
Consumer Games Label ELASTIC

Scholastic Interactive, a division
of Scholastic Media (SM) today announced Goosebumps HorrorLand™ for Wii™,
PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Nintendo DS™. Goosebumps
HorrorLand is the first game to be published under Scholastic Interactive’s new
publishing label ELASTIC™.

Scholastic Interactive is already
well-known for high quality, award-winning games that educate and entertain
children. Now, with the introduction of the ELASTIC label, the company is
expanding its catalog to include more entertainment driven titles and broaden
its reach to consumers. The titles under the new label will be published across
all interactive platforms and will feature content based on Scholastic
properties, such as Goosebumps®, as well as other original and third-party
licensed properties.

"We are delighted to be launching
our new games label, ELASTIC, with Goosebumps. Goosebumps has a broad and
enthusiastic global fan base who will be thrilled with our new games. What
better way to deliver the thrills and chills of a Goosebumps experience than
with a game that puts the player in the heart of HorrorLand," said Deborah
Forte, President, Scholastic Media and Executive Vice President of Scholastic

Marking the brand’s first foray into
gaming consoles and handhelds, Goosebumps HorrorLand is an adventure game set in
a fright-themed amusement park filled with over thirty thrilling rides and
bone-chilling attractions. Sounds like fun – until players discover the scares
are all too real and find themselves vanquishing vampires, hanging on for life
on the Roller Ghoster and battling Certain Death. As players fiendishly try to
escape the park, they will unravel a mystery, encounter a host of creepy
horrors, monsters and mummies plus trademark Goosebumps twists and cliffhangers.
Goosebumps HorrorLand will offer the suspense, pulse-pounding action, tension
and humor that defines the franchise. Goosebumps HorrorLand, the video game, is
set to make nightmares come to life on Wii™ (SRP $39.99), Nintendo DS™ (SRP
$29.99), and Playstation®2 system (SRP $29.99) in October 2008.
