Who thinks there should be a Costume Quest 2?

I love Costume Quest, it's one of my favorite DL games, who thinks they should make a sequel (hell make it a full featured disc game lol)

I would love to see a new Costume Quest, because I think the original game had a lot of charm and hilarity but was plagued with being overly simple and (i know this is a little thing but it makes a big difference to me) the text was really difficult to read. Despite that I think another would be lovely, although I'm not actively hoping for one because Double Fine is not known for making franchises, ever.

Game should be harder.

Maybe they can age the kids to be low-to-mid teenage so they can add some angsty-elements and make fun of that part of halloween. So with that you can make the theme a little more adult (probably getting a T rating) and upping the level of difficulty or complexity.

It would be nice, but I'm not dieing for it. 
All they would need to do is make it longer than 5 hours and increase the difficulty. I swear if anyone makes a longer and harder joke I'll...

I really hope something is announced, either a sequel or DLC. Costume Quest is forever a favorite of mine.

I still have to finish it.

I was thinking about this the other day, wish we had another one before Halloween, definitely not going to happen at this point though.

I would like to play more as well. Unfortunately the Project Lead on the game, Tasha Harris, left Double Fine a few weeks ago for a job at Pixar. The game came out of an event where employees pitched ideas for games, and this was hers. While I'm sure Double Fine owns the game, without her the chances of a sequel or more DLC may be lower.

It was fun and I wouldn't mind a sequel.

I would also like a PC version of the first Costume Quest, or really any of the recent Double Fine games. Seriously, who makes $10-$20 downloadable games but then somehow doesn't release a PC version on their website or on Steam?

A full featured game would be awesome. Greater story, more fleshed out characters and a bigger world. Make it an fully fleshed out old school JRPG.

I really enjoyed Costume Quest, despite it being really easy and quite short. Regardless, I still had a lot of fun playing through it and I would definitely like to see a sequel. I wouldn't hold my breath for it, but it would be a lot of fun I'm sure.

This, seriously. Why won't Double Fine take my damn money?

Vehemently. I think it's the only arcade game I've ever bought, and only because I saw a trailer of it on GB and was like 'man that looks rad'. I even got the Christmas dlc. Shame I havent got my 360 here to play it this halloween.

It was okay. It got way repetitive, and I was happy for it to end when it did.

I've been wanting to play this for a while but then other new games keep coming out and I forget :/

I wouldn't mind if Costume Quest was a yearly thing, as long as there was completely new costumes and refined game mechanics.

They need to tune up the combat though. Everything else about the game was good.

I'd kill for them elaborate on it with a Legend of Dragoon style rhythm-esque attack input system.

I really enjoyed this game, and I was hoping for some Halloween DLC this year. So yes, I'd love this, it's such a fun and cute game, especially with some updates to the gameplay (the battles could be a little repetitive).

Bought the Double Fine pack the other day and just finished Costume Quest and Grubbins on Ice. Seeing as how it ends I would be surprised if we don't see some form of a sequel next Halloween.

Resurrection, I know, but damn. I LOVE this game and I wanna see a sequel. Or at least some more DLC. Is there any word?
