Costume Quest Gets Price, Release Date

Double Fine head honcho Tim Schafer has revealed that the studio's Hallowe'en RPG Costume Quest will be released for download on box 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 20, not Halloween itself as was thought, priced at $15 (1200 Microsoft Points).


Created by Double Fine lead animator Tasha Harris, Costume Quest stars a plucky group of kids trying to repel a monster invasion of their neighbourhood on Hallowe'en night. In Double Fine's words, "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."
