Costume Quest Video Game to Get Its Own Cartoon Adaptation
It would seem that cartoon adaptations of video games are now en vogue, as Amazon has recently announced an animated series based on Double Fine Productions’ RPG titled Costume Quest, and will be adding it to their Amazon Original Kids Series slate.
The Costume Quest cartoon will be under executive producer Will McRobb, who also serves as story editor, and Frederator Studios’ Fred Seibert, Kevin Kolde, and Eric Homan. The production itself will be done at Frederator Studios.
For the uninitiated, the original Costume Quest video game focused on four kids with hyperactive imaginations, who uncover sinister machinations in the sleepy town of Auburn Pines. The game was notable for using the concept of the kids’ creativity in order to transform mundane tasks such as throwing out the trash, collecting pieces of a Halloween costume, and standing up to bullies, into hyper-kinetic, flashy fights that would not look out of place in a Saturday morning cartoon.
The cartoon adaptation will retain the game’s humor and mysterious elements, and will be targeted towards kids aged 6 to 11. The Amazon Original Kids Series library is available for both offline and online viewing to Prime members via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, mobile devices, Fire TV or online at no extra cost. It is also available exclusively on Amazon devices via the FreeTime Unlimited kids’ subscription service.
