Costume Quest is a role-playing game developed by the Double Fine Productions team, and was directed by Tasha Sounart.


Children's costumes become the characters that they are pretending to be, allowing the kids to fight epic battles against monsters. The group leader's sibling is taken by a monster from another realm called Repugnia, when mistaken for a piece of candy corn. A trio of kids must travel across their neighborhood to fight the Repugnians to get their friend back.


Costume Quest was originally prototyped during the 2009 Amnesia Fortnight. The Costume Quest prototype was released for Windows as part of the first public Amnesia Fortnight session in 2012.
