November 14th, 2013

Well, here we are. The Halloween candy has all been eaten. We're in that post-Halloween depression. Can nothing raise our spirits? The next Halloween Sale is SO FAR AWAY.

WAIT. What if we just drop the price of Costume Quest on Steam by $5...FOREVER? Do we have to get permission? Let's just do it. Costume Quest now has a permanent price reduction to $9.99. FOREVER. Don't tell Tim though, okay? Don't tell him...FOREVER.

I enjoyed Costume Quest quite a bit, until I reached a game-breaking bug, two hours in. More on that in a bit.

Costume Quest is a streamlined RPG. It's a fun game, but not particularly difficult. The combat is a simplistic timing game, and the quests have a way of fulfilling themselves as you wander around the map. But that's OK, because Costume Quest doesn't present itself as a serious RPG.

I's a breezy, light RPG with a sense of humor, that begs to be played straight through in a sitting. Truely, it's an RPG/Platformer hybrid, in that there are environmental puzzles that must be worked out to advance the map and the story. It's a mix that works.

...until you come to the Autumn Haven shopping mall. There's a game-breaking bug in the camping equipment store: If you walk between the sleeping bag and the tent, your companion will follow you into that wedge, and block you in. None of your special skills will get you out of this position.

If this happens to you, don't exit to the menu! Crash the game manually, so it doesn't have a chance to autosave your position. If it saves your position, you'll be stuck there when you start again, and you'll have to start over from the beginning of the game. Seriously. Check the Steam forums, I'm not the only one with this problem.

So, yes. I like Costume Quest, and I think you will, too. I want to complete this game, but I don't want to replay the first two hours again. I give Costume Quest a thumbs up, but be careful in the mall so you don't lose your game like I did.

Yet again Double Fine surprises me and yet again they manage to make another rather unique and great game. Costume Quest puts you in the role of a young boy who's trying to save his little sister from monsters that invaded their neighborhood on Halloween. You find friends along the way and unlock and craft new costumes. Each costume grants you with a different ability and diferent abilities to use in combat. The combat in Costume Quest it's turn based, very similar to the way Final Fantasy games handle. There's also some perks which you can buy with candy that grant you certain passive abilities such as extra damage or health points recovery after each turn. You'll probably spend alot of your time going around the place smashing stuff and the more fun, knocking on people's doors (Trick or Treat) and sometimes you'll get candies from the people that live on those houses and sometimes a monster will open the door for you and you'll jump into combat, that's pretty much how you collect candy which is used as a currency in Costume Quest. Visually, I think the game looks pretty neat, a rather unique cartoony looking which I really like, I also found the monster design to be rather funny. Other than that, the game has no voice acting, it's all text based and the story is certainly entertaining. In the end, Costume Quest was made by Double Fine and that alone puts it up on a great position, per say. You'll definitely get both your time and money worth on this. Just one last thing, the Steam version of Costume Quest also includes the DLC Grubbins on Ice which takes place, and continues, the plot of the base game.

I couldn't recommend this game hard enough, I really can't. It's an amazing title with so much character and soul, bringing you right back to a childlike world of imagination ... where a cardboard box becomes a stomping, missile-firing, 20ft tall mech robot :D Amazing game, incredibly fun and very enjoyable.

The first time I ever had my eyes on this masterpiece was when Ceildric was streaming this game for the Forum Vaporis's 24hr Halloween stream. I fell in love with this game even if I wasnt the one playing it and when I finally got the game, Boy did it blow me away. If I had to choose one game from Double Fine's roster, This would be the one I'd pick up and play. Its pretty small game time wise but you will enjoy the journey. Its pretty easy to 100% the game too.

I'm going to start this out by saying this: I loved this game. It is absolutely adorable. You play as one of two siblings out to collect candy on halloween. Alls not well however, when they discover that the neighborhood has been taken over by evil doings.

Artistically, Costume Quest is great. Interesting graphics with a FFVII-esque transition between the cutsy overworld and the combat scenes. The music fits the game well, but isn't outstanding. The story is silly and fun, and not super serious.

Mechanically, the game is solid. Combat and overworld controls make sense and everything is easy to pick up. Combat is menu based, but not overwhelmingly so. Each costume has different strengths and weaknesses, and different combinations can make for a very different combat experience.

If you're looking for a quick, uninvolved RPG, you could do a lot worse than Costume Quest.
