Costume Quest Announced and Screens

The wacky worlds of Game Designer Tim Schafer come to life on XBLA and PSN
Releasing these screenshots, THQ announced Costume Quest, a new third-person adventure game from Tim Schafer and Double Fine, and scheduled to be available in early 2011, via Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network. Costume Quest is a rollicking adventure/RPG that 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 - 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 worst monsters.
