Keep your eyes peeled (then put them in a bowl in the fridge, ready for your halloween haunted house)



Knights and Bikes is a hand-painted action-adventure for 1 or 2 players, set on a British island in the 1980s.

It's a coming-of-age story starring Nessa & Demelza, exploring the coasts of Penfurzy on their trusty bikes, looking for a legendary lost treasure in a Goonies-inspired tale of excitement, danger, fun and friendship.



The two new friends, along with their pet-goose and the pickled-head of an undead knight, form the Penfurzy Rebel Bicycle Club, and are ready for anything this adventure throws at them. They pedal into danger to face threats head-on with frisbees, water-balloons, video game controllers and the powerful beats of an amplified boom-box.

Along the way they'll stuff their pockets with trinkets and barter for bike upgrades, spurring them onward down the island's country lanes, windswept beaches, deep forests, modern attractions and ancient ruins.

Together their friendship will create an adventure as big as their imaginations.



The game is by Rex Crowle, (Creative Director: Tearaway/Tearaway-Unfolded, Art & Design: LittleBigPlanet) and by Moo You (Gameplay Programmer: Ratchet & Clank and LittleBigPlanet). Audio design by Kenny Young (Audio Lead: Tearaway & LittleBigPlanet) and with a musical score by Daniel Pemberton (Composer: The Man From Uncle, Steve Jobs, King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword)

Costume Quest

The original Costume Quest is an underrated Double Fine classic, an homage to JRPGs dressed up for Halloween in which kids use the powers of their robot suits and unicorn outfits to fight monsters disguised as adults. (The sequel was less great.) Now Frederator Studios, the people behind Adventure Time and the Netflix Castlevania series, are turning it into a cartoon. 

The animated series will debut on Amazon's Prime Video service on March 8. The trailer makes it look a bit different conceptually to the games, with magical costumes coming from a mysterious shop rather than ordinary costumes being brought to life through the Power of Imagination alone. Also the monsters are powered up by nougat. 

As well as the trailer above, you can watch the opening titles below.

Costume Quest

Amazon's animated TV adaptation of Double Fine's much-loved Costume Quest series will premiere on March 8th - and there's a first proper trailer to celebrate.

Costume Quest's television adaptation was first announced back in 2017, and is the work of Frederator Studios, the team responsible for the likes of Adventure Time and Netflix's animated Castlevania series.

Based on the promo material shared so far, Costume Quest's TV adaptation looks to remain pretty faithful to Double Fine's duo of Costume Quest games. It follows the adventures of four young friends - Wren, Reynold, Everett, and Lucy - as they attempt to fend off dark forces on Hallowe'en in order to save Auburn Hollow, their sleepy hometown. As you might imagine, costumes imbued with amazing magical powers are very much involved.

Costume Quest

As you might recall, last year brought the news that Costume Quest, developer Double Fine's delightful trick-or-treaty Halloween RPG, was to be turned into an animated TV series. That's still a thing that's happening - and if you need further proof, it now has an opening title sequence!

Costume Quest's TV adaptation is the work of Frederator Studios (also responsible for Adventure Time and Netflix's Castlevania), and is scheduled to air on Amazon Video next year.

Unsurprisingly, it doesn't sound like the show will doggedly adhere to the (very slight) stories told in Double Fine's original Costume Quest or its 2014 sequel, but the fundamentals are more or less the same. According to Cartoon Hangover, the TV series "stars four kids facing off against the dark forces lurking in the shadows of their sleepy town of Auburn Hollow."

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.
