On January 27, Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions are releasing a re-mastered version of my favorite video game of all time: Grim Fandango. (I still have the disc and other materials from the original 1998 release. Last year, I reinstalled Grim Fandango on a Windows 7 machine with the help of the good folks at http://grimfandangodeluxe.blogspot.co.uk/
For those unfamiliar with the graphic adventure classic, Grim Fandango is a neo-noir tale of crime and corruption set in the Mexican Land of the Dead. You play Manny Calavera, a travel agent working off his debt by selling travel packages to the recently deceased so they can make the long journey to the Ninth Underworld and find eternal rest. Only someone is fixing things so that Manny never gets any big commissions... and some clients never get to the Ninth Underworld at all.
Face heart-stopping danger in a well-tailored tuxedo! Mingle with over 50 bizarre characters! Race across 90 exotic locales! One woman's stolen destiny... one travel agent's ultimate commission... his very soul!
Who's with me? #GrimFandango
