Midnight City, indie label of Majesco Entertainment Company, has today announced that the publisher will be joining forces with two of the most well-known names in indie games; Double Fine Productions and The Fullbright Company.

On the Double Fine front, Majesco Entertainment revealed that Halloween fans will soon be getting a treat rather than a trick, with the indie dev announcing Costume Quest 2 for PC and consoles. Fans of the original can look forward to a sweet upgraded battle system and a story that is unmistakably Double Fine.
"For the last couple of years," said Tim Schafer, Creative Director of Double Fine Productions, "whenever Halloween came around, I felt like something was missing. No matter how many pumpkins I carved, apples I bobbed, or candy I ate, it just couldn't fill the big spooky hole inside of me. But then I realized what was missing: I needed more Costume Quest. And also, I really wanted a T-Shirt with glowing skulls on it."
Alongside Costume Quest 2 is the announcement that Fullbright's PC release of hit indie title Gone Home will soon be moving to anew home on consoles, bringing with it all the console benefits you'd expect.
"Ever since we released Gone Home on PC, we've had people asking us - 'When's it coming to console?" said Steve Gaynor, writer, designer and co-founder of The Fullbright Company. We've been looking and looking for the right partner to help us, and finally after much searching, Midnight City fit the bill. They have a great understanding of what an indie needs, how to get the word out about the game, and help us get the best versions of the game possible to all those players that have been waiting patiently to experience Gone Home in their living rooms. Viva la Midnight City!"

"It's not every day that you're able to work with talent like Double Fine and The Fullbright Company," said Casey Lynch, VP of Publishing at Midnight City. "The opportunity to partner with one of the most beloved, well-established studios in the indie scene along with one of the most brilliant teams in development represents a sea change for games publishing. We're moving into a brand new middle that's taking shape in the widening gap between word of mouth indie and triple A."
Check out Costume Quest 2's announcement trailer and Gone Home's console trailer below to see them in action, and we'll have more on their release dates soon.
