Costume Quest 2 is an RPG that relates the story of Wren and Reynold (the same main characters as in the original Costume Quest) who are on a quest through time to save Halloween. An evil dentist (!) managed to get control of an item that allows time travel and by going back to the past, he managed to ban Halloween. In the altered future that followed, costumes and candies are forbidden, which is why our heroes will make sure that Halloween is restored!
Tim Schafer’s studio Double Fine, which created the innovative adventure/platformer “Psychonauts” and more recently the quirky Russian doll game “Stacking,” released the seasonally-themed light RPG adventure “Costume Quest” to PSN and XBLA on October 19, 2010. The game is a delightful bit of cotton candy fluff that features tongue-in-cheek but innocent humor, a solid if simplistic turn-based battle mechanic, and a healthy respect for the sense of empowerment that role-playing can bring to a kid or even to us, whether in a Halloween costume or through digital avatar. The game is suitable for everyone from a child who has never played an RPG before to an experienced and obsessional gamer (you know the type: the one who has to collect every single one of the five hundred useless doodads scattered throughout a game world).
