Surprise! Costume Quest is now out on iOS


Just in time for Halloween
Oct 10
Just in time for Halloween is Double Fine's Costume Quest, now available for iOS devices. Sweet!

In the rush for style, substance was dropped
It's not hard to be mesmerized by Dropchord's art style. It's equal parts psychedelic and vibrant, and with the combination of an arrangement of electronic music, there's a lot of room for potential here -- especially when Double Fine is involved. But with Dropchord, a focus on style is exactly what you're getting, with a distinct lack of gameplay variety to back it up. read feature
