Grim Fandango Remastered dropped a few days ago and according to the reviews i've been reading, if you loved the original you will love this. This morning I found a comprehensive article about resurrecting this classic on Polygon. If you are interested in reading the story of how Double Fine and Sony were able to bring Grim Fandango back, it is well worth the read. Spoiler alert, it involved several old tape machines.

Double Fine also has three documentaries part one is linked above, you can watch the remaining two on the Grim Fandago website.

Grim Fandango is a beloved cult classic of PC gaming and as such the remaster has been getting lots of attention. You can pick up Grim Fandango Remastered on the Vita, PS4, PC, Mac and Linux.

This is one game I completely missed when it came around the first time. I've had several people tell me it's one of the best adventure games out there as well as just a great game period. Has anyone from the CG community played this before? Does it live up to its reputation?

I'm like you, Tim, while I was aware of Grim Fandango at the time, I did not play it. I remember the game being on the CD of video game demos from PC Magazine, but I never played it. I did recently notice in my Playstation news feed, that the game is available.

I picked it up back in the day. It's your typical Lucas arts adventure game, reminiscent of a lot of the Telltale games now. I remember thinking that the opening act was the best and then it went downhill, but what did I know, I was like 12.

I can't wait to play this. Never got the chance to.
