Double Fine Partners With THQ For Two Downloadable Games

Double Fine’s newly outed downloadable title Costume Quest isn’t just some potential project; it’s actually being published by THQ this fall.

As 1UP reports, Costume Quest, headed by Double Fine’s lead animator Tasha Harris, is an adventure-RPG set on Halloween night and tasks players with collecting items that kids typically collect on Halloween (candy, cards, battle stamps, quest assignments, etc.). These items are then used to power up your characters in Combat Mode where players transform into towering versions of their costumed selves to face off against giant beasts.

"We wanted to make a big impression with these, our first downloadable games ever," said Double Fine CEO Tim Schafer. "So we are coming out swinging with two great adventures from two of the most creative minds in the company."

THQ will release the second title, a third-person adventure game, in 2011, but that’s all the info available for the game at this point. Double Fine currently has at least four downloadable titles in development, two of which we now know are being released by THQ. Hopefully this means we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out what Tim Schafer and his fellow Double Finers have planned for the remaining two games.
