[Update: Well that didn't take long. The game's been announced -- it's a downloadable title being published by THQ. It'll hit Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network in late October. More details here.]
It’s already been revealed that Pyschonauts and Brutal Legend developer Double Fine is already cooking up a few unannounced projects at its studio. While most of us are hoping there's a sequel to the critical darling Psychonauts in there somewhere, one of them is probably not a sequel to Brutal Legend. But here’s one out of left field -- what are your thoughts on a Costume Quest?
Trademark-trawling Siliconera has spotted a USPTO filing by Double Fine for Costume Quest. What the hell is that? Well, it certainly sounds like some kind of journey where you search for costumes. Obviously.
But that explanation is likely far too mundane for Tim Schafer and the folks at Double Fine, whose creative minds work in some of the most curious and craziest ways. Even our best guesses probably wouldn’t scratch the surface of where the studio plans to take us on a Costume Quest.
Is Double Fine’s Next Game Costume Quest? [Siliconera]
