Video: Costume Quest Arrives Next Week on PlayStation Network

219w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has announced today that Costume Quest arrives next week on PlayStation Network and shared some fresh video footage of it in action along with an interview.

To quote: Sure, there have been plenty of scary games released in time for Halloween (I remember writing this feature about them back when I worked on eu.playstation.com) but I can't remember too many games about Halloween.

Tim Schafer's [Register or Login to view links] is plugging that void with Costume Quest, the developer's first Playstation Network title.

I recently caught up with Tim and lead artist Tasha Harris, as you can see by clicking play in the magic box below.





In Costume Quest, you control one of two siblings on Halloween night. Just before you set off trick or treating your brother or sister (depending on who you choose to play as) is kidnapped and you set off into the neighborhood to rescue them and escape a severe grounding.

On the surface, it's an action adventure with heaps of side missions for those who explore, but it also plays with other genres in surprising ways. As you can imagine, costumes are a key part of the game and collecting new ones gives you new powers, not...

221w ago - Double Fine Productions Project Lead Tasha Harris has shared a video today on Costume Quest inspirations, and confirmed that it will be hitting PS3 via PSN on October 19, 2010.

To quote: I'm the project lead for Double Fine's newest downloadable PSN game, [Register or Login to view links].

If you haven't already heard about it, I'll give you a quick summary: Costume Quest is a Halloween-themed RPG in which you trick-or-treat through neighborhoods as a group of monster-fighting kids who can transform into super-awesome versions of their costumes.

If you've seen any of the [Register or Login to view links] online previews in the past few days and, you probably already have a basic idea about Costume Quest's gameplay. Today I'm going to tell you a little more about some of the inspirations behind the game.





Homemade costumes

One of the main influences of Costume Quest was my own love for Halloween growing up, and the fantastic costumes that my mom would make for my younger sister and I - magicians and devils for me, princesses and brides for my sister. A couple of the real-life costumes that ended up making...
 

Video: Shank Hits PSN Tomorrow, Costume Unlock Code Arrives

50°
227w ago - Klei Co-Founder Jamie Cheng has announced that Shank will be hitting PSN tomorrow, and he shared a launch trailer video and costume unlock code today too!

To quote: Over the last few days, we've been announcing the Shank Costumes over at the [Register or Login to view links], and divulging how to unlock them on our [Register or Login to view links] account.

Jeff asked if I could divulge one unlock criteria especially for readers, so obviously I complied. The costume I chose was one that's close to impossible to stumble across.

So, today's special is costume number 8 – the ANY-S costume!

Unlock Criteria

After completing the single-player campaign, input a slight modification to the classic Konami code: up+up+down+down+left+right+left+right+circle+x.





As you can guess, these outfits are odes to our own geeky fantasies. Naming them was a fun little exercise. Did you know that "Droid" is trademarked? I didn't.

And with that, I'm off! Enjoy the launch trailer and let me know if you have any questions!
 

LittleBigPlanet PS3 Update, Marvel Costume Packs and Level Kit

250°
235w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has posted up this week's LittleBigPlanet PS3 community update, which includes new Marvel Costume Packs and a LBP Level Kit and more!

To quote: A few weeks back, during the Mm Community Jam, Alex, myself and the rest of the Mm team stayed up all night with our super-users.

And when you combine no sleep + coffee / energy drinks / both with fun, creative minds and lots of laughter ensues. Particularly at my expense, as they found out I was the Marketing Manager for Genji: Days of the Blade.

From then it was nonstop Genji talk, ending in a brilliant auto-tuned song dedicated to me, with brilliant lyrics and chorus of "Massive Damage" / "Giant Crabs". Payback time...
