Totally unexpected but fantastic news!!!!  The original is easily one of my top five games of all time.  The music, atmosphere, and charm took me back to my childhood.  It absolutely captured the spirit of neighborhood trick or treating from back then.

They had a funny announcement video as usual for Double Fine these days.

Sadly it seems like they won't have voice overs for this game.  I thought the first one was cute but would have been improved immensely by good VO.

Iím glad itís in production but it also makes me a bit worried.  Isnít this about the 3rd or 4th game Doublefine has in production right now?  As far as I know they arenít a very big studio, wouldnít it be better to, you know, finish a game before you start another one?

Pretty excited about this one too. I actually didn't play Costume Quest until well after release, when I finally picked it up cheap on a Steam sale. Absolutely loved it. I'm a huge Halloween nut, and the theming was perfect.

Double Fine has pretty much settled into a Telltale Games style of doing many mid-tier AA projects at once, instead of banking everything on costly AAA development.

I think how they get away with it is that most of the studio is working on their primary 1-2 projects, while more newly announced stuff is still in preproduction and planning with a smaller team.

It's one of the few ways developers can do AA development nowadays.

I think their studio has enough people for up to 4 small projects to be in production at a time.  Games at different points of development don't need the same amount of people throughout, so having some starting while others are in full production or winding down is a good thing and helps eliminate cycles of layoffs.

I wasn't reading names and almost replied to myself with a movie suggestion for someone who liked Halloween theming so much.  tear

I was thinking the exact same thing. The first game is still sitting in my backlog. The only problem is The Evil Within releases in late October, and it seems like the perfect Halloween game.

a definite First World problem....

Good point. Looks like Costume Quest will be the week before!

Reading some user reviews, it sounds like you should play the "Grubbins on Ice" expansion before CQ2.  I guess there are some story tie-ins that aren't well explained.

I held off on buying it just because I never played Grubbins on Ice. However, I can't find it for purchase anywhere.

It is just on the PC via Steam at this point.  Other platforms coming soon.

No, I mean you can't find Grubbins on Ice anymore.

Though now that I look at it, it appears that the current original version of Costume Quest includes it. So maybe I just need to reinstall mine and I'll get it automatically.

I think the PC version always included the Grubbins expansion.
