Costume Quest Developer Commentary with Tim Schafer

Legendary producer Tim Schafer and Lead Animator Tasha Harris were in GR HQ showing off Costume Quest recently, and we’re not shy about saying it charmed the pants right off of us. Don’t let precious nature of the screenshots fool you into thinking you’re in for a purely kiddie affair. It’s got a helluva lot more in common with Psychonauts and Wind Waker than drivel like MySims.

Above: Watch this turn into THIS! 

The upcoming Halloween RPG turns adorable costumes into battle-ready mech suits, candy into hard currency, and backyards into puzzle strewn dungeons. You don’t have to take our word for it. We asked Tasha and Tim to do the talking and they were kind enough to record an exclusive commentary through the first part of the game that you won’t hear anywhere else. Prepare to smile:

    It looks like a neat little game that would be fun to play in October, during that "Halloween" vibe from the internet and tv. I am actually interested in this game though, looks charming I guess would be the word.

    This does look great

    Looks more fun than Deathspank too...

    Man this looks like it could have been awesome on the psp, but it'll also gladly due on xbla and psn.

    My prediction: it will be a critical darling and have a small but devoted fanbase (along with a bunch of people who have never played it, but want to sound "hip" and say it's great), but it will still be a huge commercial failure.

    God how I wanted a Brutal Legend 2...... But this will do.

    i love tim Schafer with all my heart and this game looks great but its not on the the top of my list

    why the 2 5 min videos instead of one? Otherwise, looks like a fun game. I'll support almost anything Double Fine does, as long as they don't try to make another strategy game

    By Odin's Beard, if I have to wrestle with that goddamn video player one more time I'm going to start shooting. Great little game, too.

    Probably another great game that no one will buy
