Costume Quest to Receive Winter-Themed DL

More Costume Quest is coming our way soon via DLC. Since no one gives out candy for free this time of year, that must mean it's time to mug the neighbors.

A lie would be considered the truth if only more people believed it.

    Woo! Hopefully it's soon. I've been spoiled by the quick DeathSpank sequel.
    The original game was about 5 hours as well though, and I don't get the "ironic" joke.

    It'll be out in December, no point in releasing Christmas themed DLC in March :P

    My personal hope is that this trend continues all year and they keep doing more for different holidays. A Valentine's Day one in February would be great, an Easter themed one in May, and then maybe some summer vacation themed DLC in July. I can imagine all of those working really well.

    I doubt the DLC will be five hours long, but I hope I am wrong.

    I am more interested in their new game Stacking, looks crazy.

    I hadn't seen that one yet, so I had to go have a look. Yeah, that does look amazing.

    Moving to the downloadable marketplace was probably the smartest thing Double Fine has ever done. Their quirky, completely off-the-wall offerings are perfect for the Arcade/PSN.

    True, it also means less risk if a game doesn't sell millions. And as you already said, this means that they can use their passion to do games without hampering creativity. It also doesn't hurt that Ron Gilbert joined them. I hope they are successful.

    Well no, but December is 31 days!

    But I agree about seasonal themed DLC. Great idea.

    I completely agree with this. Very glad to see they found a viable market for their products after Brutal fell short on sales.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    I agree. It's not ironic, it's appropriate.

    See, the use of "ironically" was an instance of irony because we'd usually expect "ironically" to be used when something is actually ironic. That joke is on Level 2.

    Seriously, I loved Costume Quest, and I can't wait to play more, particularly with a fix to the saving system. Losing 20 or so minutes when quitting after I could have sworn I saw an auto-save icon really frustrated me in the first one.
