A few weeks back, Tim Schaffer announced that Double Fine would be focusing on four smaller projects rather than dedicate all their resources to one huge and expensive Triple-A title. The first of those games has been announced today, via a story over at 1Up.com. Ladies and Gentlemen, feast your eyes upon Costume Quest:
According to the preview (which gives a more in-depth coverage of the title), the game has a similar design to SNES era RPGs, with an isometric world map ala Earthbound broken up by in-game cut-scenes and awesome battle screens. The game is set during Halloween, and your protagonist is attempting to save your younger sister from monsters who mistook her candy cane inspired costume for the real thing. The costumes that your party wears at any time affects their ability in battle, similar to "jobs" in some Final Fantasy games.
And the best part? It scheduled to come out THIS fall on X-Box Live Arcade and the Playstation Network, published through an argeement with THQ. Holy tamale, that is soon!
