Costume Quest is said to be the first downloadable game from Tim Schafer’s studio Double Fine Productions, and was created by its project lead, Tasha Harris.
The game is rated E10+ for everyone 10 and older and is available for the suggested download price of 1200 Microsoft Points and $14.99 on PlayStation Network.
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—where they 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 monsters, explained THQ while making the game release announcement today, Oct. 20.
