Kotaku called it "the best game that Double Fine has ever made." Lots of people loved it, too. And now Double Fine is making a sequel.
Surprise! Double Fine's lovely turn-based RPG Costume Quest just popped up on the iTunes store. Between this and The Cave last week, could Psychonauts iOS be on the horizon? Here's hoping they can get the rights to Day of the Tentacle, too.
Tim Schafer tells Game Informer that his studio, Double Fine, still is trying to buy back the rights to Stacking and Costume Quest from the dissolved THQ, and also Brütal Legend from EA and Iron Brigade (formerly Trenched) from Microsoft. "We can still make more of those games," he says.
Costume Quest last year's children's crusade to save Halloween by Double Fine, has been ported to PC and, in fact, is available now on Steam for $14.99.
Tim Schafer is a funny guy. He makes funny games like Grim Fandango and Psychonauts. And the idea for his newest game comes from an unlikely place.
Christmas. It's not only a holiday, but a mood, a memory. Movies ranging from It's A Wonderful Life to Home Alone capture that festive feeling. Video games, do not.
Halloween has come and gone, but Double Fine Productions' candy-coated role-playing game Costume Quest will continue. The first add-on for that downloadable game, Grubbins On Ice, is coming soon.
Costume Quest is a short, easy game that plays like Final Fantasy on training wheels. And it's the best game Double Fine has ever made.
How would you like to play DoubleFine's Costume Quest for free? Codes are all gone. If you enter a used PSN code it gives you the demo, sorry for any confusion.
Super Mario cakes? Doom jello sculptures? No edible homage to video games would be surprising unless the edible homage was... healthy? One inspired cook made a dish of Costume Quest for her boyfriend to eat and for us to admire.
Costume Quest, the next game from the Psychonauts and Brutal Legend studio DoubleFine — and more importantly, the only trick-or-treating role-playing game of the year — will be released on October 20, the game's publisher THQ revealed today. Price: $15.
Costume Quest, an upcoming role-playing game from Brutal Legend developer Double Fine, looks wonderful. How wonderful? This wonderful.
The house of Brutal Legend and Pyschonauts has Costume Quest next. And then? "A third-person adventure digital game scheduled to be released in early 2011," according from publisher THQ's press release today. What should it be?
Costume Quest, a game with a dull name and a colorful pedigree is not just a trick-or-treating role-playing game coming to the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 this fall. I saw it in action. It has modern smarts.
