Halloween’s here! Imma be ‘sexy Shigeru Miyamoto.’ Now that you have that horrible image stuck in your head, let us erase it with a review of Double Fine’s new Haloween RPG, Costume Quest.
RADAR: Costume Quest
Double Fine Productions
Halloween is all about being creepy, dark, gaudy, scary, and a little bit hilarious. So what better developer to take on a Halloween-themed game than Double Fine, the people who brought us psychonauts and brutal legend? Costume Quest is their latest, a downloadable for the 3260 and PS3 that combines trick or treating, turn-based RPG gameplay, and their very recognizable brand of humor. This is where a lesser man would pose the question of whether the game is a trick or a treat. I WILL INSTEAD MOVE ON.
