New Double Fine game Costume Quest knows this is Halloween

Earlier in the day, rumors began to pop up about a new game from Tim Schafer’s studio Double Fine, the good people behind Psychonauts and Brutal Legend (more emphasis on the former, please). Something called Costume Quest.

Now, after much speculation about whether it would be a getting drunk at horrible costume party simulation, we now have official word! Costume Quest is a game starring a young boy on Halloween; costumes and monsters feature plainly into the game. And, most importantly, Ugo compare it to Earthbound, which is probably just a hopeless comparison designed to get my hopes up.

With an expected release date on October 31st, 2010 (duh) on various downloadable services, this is definitely a game to keep your eye on.
