Both indie games are due later this year. Double Fine are bringing back the candy craze this Halloween as our favourite trick-or-treaters return to do battle in their costumes.
Gone Home is coming to consoles after it has rocked the PC world with acclaim with its weirdly empty house enticing nosey parkers to rifle through draws and read diaries.
"For the last couple of years," said Tim Schafer, Creative Director of Double Fine Productions, "Whenever Halloween came around, I felt like something was missing. No matter how many pumpkins I carved, apples I bobbed, or candy I ate, it just couldn't fill the big spooky hole inside of me. But then I realized what was missing: I needed more Costume Quest. And also, I really wanted a T-Shirt with glowing skulls on it."
"Ever since we released Gone Home on PC, we've had people asking us-- 'When's it coming to console?,” said Steve Gaynor, writer, designer and co-founder of The Fullbright Company. "We've been looking and looking for the right partner to help us, and finally after much searching, Midnight City fit the bill. They have a great understanding of what an indie needs, how to get the word out about the game, and help us get the best versions of the game possible to all those players that have been waiting patiently to experience Gone Home in their living rooms. Viva la Midnight City!"
Costume Quest 2 releases on PC and console this Halloween, and Gone Home on console later in 2014.
