Costume Quest 2 Announced

Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight, a two-week period each year during which employees drop what they are doing to prototype new games, has born a number of exciting projects. Some of those titles, like Stacking, even go on to become full games. 

It’s rare that Double Fine revisits a series, but fans have been demanding a Costume Quest sequel. Today, we learned that will be happening this year (in time for Halloween, of course). 

Costume Quest stars children on a quest to save their town (and Halloween) from invading monsters. Combat is traditional turn-based RPG fare with a Mario RPG reaction system. Different costumes offer different special powers and benefits, and putting together the right team is crucial to victory.

Our Take
I love the first Costume Quest and have revisited it multiple times around Halloween. I’m excited that a sequel is finally happening, and while I don’t expect Double Fine to ever annualize the franchise, this is one I wouldn’t mind going that route.
