Flower petals glued to the eyeballs? Now that's some Halloween dedication.

Ahem. So as you may have already surmised, there is going to be a Costume Quest 2. The original Costume Quest was a delightful Halloween-themed role-playing romp from Double Fine that warmed hearts and had Alec’s internal, infernal grin factory working over time. But it was also a rather insubstantial snack of a game, all things considered. A sticky-sweet Halloween treat, but far from the sumptuous meal it could’ve been. That in mind, I’m very, very, very excited that Double Fine is carving a second Costume Quest from its colossal game development pumpkin. I doubt it’ll be some sprawling mega-opus, but I certainly won’t say no to a slightly improved stroll down the darkest> of child-friendly candy-filled alleys.

I, for one, think it's pretty obvious what's going on here.

Hey! Did you hear the news about Stacking and Costume Quest? No? Oh, right, that’s because I’m still in the process of reporting it. Well, the short version is, Double Fine – after what Tim Schafer describes as “a daring and top-secret midnight raid” on Nordic Games HQ – has reclaimed full rights to both Stacking and Costume Quest. Distribution, production, whatever else goes into making a game – all that good stuff. So what happens now? I got in touch with Double Fine to (double) find out.

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.

“Double Fine?” someone somewhere has probably said at some point maybe. “Who do they think they are, claiming to be twice as fine as the rest of us? I’m no fool. I don’t believe it for a second.” But, Mr Somewhere, what if you’re wrong>? Then you’ll just look silly, your only solace coming in the fact that going off the grid in shame would be simple, given that you have the least Google-able name of all time. Clearly, the only solution to your conundrum is a test. You need to play most of Double Fine’s back catalog, but your gleaming shield of skepticism must be kept aloft. Buying these games full price would only create suspicion that you might harbor legitimate interest. We can’t have that. The solution? A new Humble Double Fine Bundle. It’s offering all of the laugh factory’s PC games except Iron Brigade on a pay-what-you-want basis, and a pre-purchase of Broken Age if you’re willing to part with $35. Exceedingly strange, vaguely arousing video after the break.

Freaks of the night, rejoice! Steam has unleashed monster savings on ghoulish (and not so creepy) titles. From now until about the time all the pumpkins are smashed*, over 80 titles (including The Walking Dead, Bioshock, Left 4 Dead, and many more) are available at prices so low, it’s scary.

Maaaaaaaammy

Here’s what puzzles me. We’ve all been so terribly excited about Double Fine making a new point and click adventure game and potentially making Psychonauts 2 – as though the idea of getting games like that had hitherto been openly insane. And yet, on console, they’d already released Stacking, which is positively dripping in adventurey leftfield puzzles and Psychonautsy surreal-slapstick humour. So, before we get entirely wrapped up in crying for more, let’s celebrate lovely Stacking, which arrived suddenly on Steam just a few days ago. (more…)

Product Update - Valve
This patch updates the DirectX redistributables to the version required for Costume Quest. This fixes some issues that new installs of Costume Quest might have.
Product Update - Valve
Updates to Costume Quest have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

- This patch fixes an issue that caused some of the user interface elements to have a blocky appearance when rendered at high resolutions.
Product Update - Valve
This patch of Costume Quest adds a few new options:

- You can now toggle v-sync through the display settings
- We added an FXAA shader to help reduce jaggies. It’s enabled by default, and you can toggle it through the display settings
- For those with powerful GPU's, we added support for supersampling for even higher quality antialiasing. In Steam, right-click on Costume Quest, go to Properties…, click Set Launch Options…, and then type in either –ssaa2x or –ssaa4x. If you launch Costume Quest elsewhere, then just use –ssaa2x or –ssaa4x as command line arguments.
