THQ announced it has partnered with Double Fine to bring you two new downloadable games. From the award-winning mind of Tim Schafer, who brought you Psychonauts and Grim Fandango. This one is set to be an Adventure/RPG and it sounds good to me. Delivering the idea of candy and chaos, the first upcoming title – Costume Quest.
Costume Quest is set for release this fall. It unfolds on Halloween night across seemingly peaceful suburban neighborhoods, a mysterious village carnival, and a monster-infested shopping mall. The game follows the adventure of a group of young friends who must rid their neighborhood of monsters using only their wits, their bravery, and their home-made costumes. Players go door-to-door collecting candy, points, cards, battle stamps and quest assignments as they prepare themselves for Combat Mode. Here, they will transform into larger-than-life versions of their costumes. Each costume that comes-to-life provides its own unique set of superpowers that players will need to battle Halloween’s worst monsters.
