Board Game: The Shining
The Prospero Hall design team has created games from a lot of licensed properties in recent years — Jaws, Horrified, Disney Villainous, Choose Your Own Adventure, Kenny G: Keepin' It Saxy all debuted in 2018 and 2019 — and another such title has been announced: The Shining, which will be released by Mixlore, which previously published Black Mirror: NOSEDIVE and which released Top Gun Strategy Game in January 2020.

The Shining is for 3-5 players, plays in 45-60 minutes, and carries a 17+ age recommendation. Here's an overview of the game:
All work and no play...

You've traveled into the heart of the Rocky Mountains to take charge of the Overlook Hotel while it is closed for the winter — except you aren't alone. The Hotel's bloody history has made some of its past guests a permanent addition to the building, and with them come terrifying visions that begin to corrupt your mind. Snowed in, you desperately explore the rooms of the Hotel, attempting to gain enough willpower to withstand the evil influence around you. Worse still, one of you has already succumbed to the terrible forces of the Hotel and secretly acts to keep you here forever and ever...

The Shining is a suspenseful game of co-operation, deception, and terror!
