Costume Quest unwrapped

Gamasutra's Christian Nutt recently chatted up Tim Schafer, creative director at Double Fine, and thankfully the bulk of their little tête-à-tête focused on the developer's soon-to-be-released trick-or-treat RPG, Costume Quest.

Unfortunately, neither Nutt nor Schafer reveal in the interview (read it here) the general length of this Halloween-inspired game. Will it take two hours to "beat" or will it take 20? That's the only question I'd like to have answered at this point. (Well, that and what's the girl in the pink (below) supposed to be dressed as?)

Anyway, Costume Quest will hit PSN and XBLA next week carrying a price tag of $15 (or 1200 Microsoft Points). I'd pick it up in a heartbeat if I owned a PS3 or an Xbox 360, but since I don't I'll do what I usually do in such circumstances and obsess over screenshots and videos of the game until something else catches my attention.
