Developer Double Fine's Halloween-themed role-playing game Costume Quest is getting a cartoon, animation company Frederator Studios has announced.

"Since the cat’s out of the bag (how’d that happen?), it’s okay for us to tell you we’re teaming up with the geniuses at Double Fine Productions to produce an 11-minute cartoon based on their exceptional Costume Quest game," a post to Frederator Studios' official website said. "Zac Gorman (Magical Game Time) is writing and storyboarding and Pat McHale (Over the Garden Wall) is directing. We hope you’ll enjoy watching it as much as we are making it."

Even if you're not familiar with the name, you've probably seen some of Frederator Studios' previous cartoons. The studio worked on shows like The Fairly OddParents and Adventure Time.

Costume Quest was originally conceived during Double Fine's "Amnesia Fortnights" event, during which the studio rapidly tests prototypes before it commits to turning one of them into a full game. The game was successful enough to warrant a sequel, Costume Quest 2, which was released in 2014. The game's original creator, Tasha Sounart, left Double Fine in 2011 to work at Pixar as the lead franchise artist.
