This past Halloween, Double Fine teamed up with THQ to release Costume Quest, a trick-or-treat themed RPG of kid sized proportions. To keep things fresh, the developer has now posted the game’s first DLC, Grubbins on Ice, on Xbox Live for 400 Microsoft Points with the apparently frozen Grubbins thawing on PSN this December 21 for $4.99. No worries though, both versions will be bringing the same set of new additions.
The main characters, twins Wren and Reynold, are still out gathering candy – at this hour?!? – with their friends Lucy and Everett, when Lucy is caught in a magic portal by the Grubbins on Ice main boss. The rest of the kids have to form an alliance with their former monster enemies to save Lucy and defeat the new boss who is wreaking havoc for humans and monsters alike. The kids won’t have to go into the new storyline unprepared though, as the DLC brings eight new battle stamps and 18 creepy treat cards. Grubbins on Ice also packs in three new costumes, including a pirate that can zipline, an eyeball which allows a larger view of the environment for secret tracking, and a Yeti that can shield the party in battle.
If you’ve been putting off springing for this RPG-lite game, like I have, this might just be the thing that puts the decision over the top. I mean, a Yeti and an eyeball? Sold!
