The Making of Grim Fandango Remastered

The makers of Grim Fandango discuss the development of the beloved adventure game and how Double Fine Productions plans to release the original classic to a contemporary audience. Watch The Making of Grim Fandango Here!

About This Game

Something's rotten in the land of the dead, and you're being played for a sucker. Meet Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death. He sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. But there's trouble in paradise. Help Manny untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.

One of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time is now back, better than ever. Grim Fandango's epic story of four years in the life (or death) of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won GameSpot's Game of the Year award upon its original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Remastered version includes

  • Repainted, hi-res character textures
  • New, dynamic lighting
  • Classic score re-recorded with a full live orchestra
  • Over 2 hours of exclusive developer commentary
  • Concept art browser

If You finish this game without any help, You are meant to be a Prodigal Detective in Real Life.
I'm Not Joking People. I think this is the 'Dark Souls' of Point and Click games.


++Great Point and Click Game.
+++Voice Acting and Characters are Brilliant. Its just Brilliant.
+Controls are ok, but sometimes gets tiring moving around and interacting.
++Story is Engaging enough to push you to the finish.
++Dynamic Dialogues for Interactions.

- Subtle Hints and sometimes no Hints at all to some puzzles. It will drive you crazy.
- Achivements are impossible to get without guides.( Coz 95% are Hidden Achivements)
- No Replayability. Then again 12hrs+ is fine for the price.

Heh. A Point and Click game took 17 hrs to Finish. Insane.
8/10.

This is one of, if not the best game I've played period. If I were to make a list of the top ten games ever, I would not be able to put this game on it, because it's too good of a game. Some people say it needs a sequel, but it would be a crime to do sell it... or make it. Ok, the games good... this may sound like i'm being payed or something, but you won't regret buying it.(Also, I have not played this game in my child-hood, so I have no nostalga towards it.)

There's nothing I can say about Grim Fandango that hasn't already been said. Instead, I'll leave you with this quote, straight from the first part of the game:

"Run, you pigeons! It's Robert Frost!"

10/10 would struggle with the puzzles again.

(this review might change if I am able to do what i am about to discuss.)
I wanted to play this game so much for the reviews, and it looks amazing as well.
But as much as I tried to play it, it says, "You need OpenGL (or something like that) to play Grim Fandango."
I tried doing the suggestions and all of the tutorials (on steam) on how to put OpenGL on grim fandango.
As you can see from how long ive played, it hasnt worked.
I will change this IF someone can help me with this dilema im in.

So far,
1/10

A very enjoyable remake of a classic game!

This remake is fantastic for those who want to relive the tormenting puzzles that will have you stumped for hours. Walkthroughs and Gamefaqs are not for those who are true of heart. Grim Fandango is for those who enjoy trying every item in the inventory with every person, object, and interactable in the game in order to figure out the MOST OBVIOUS SOLUTION TO A PUZZLE EVER CREATED.

In all seriousness, it runs great on Windows 10, looks fantastic, can revert to classic graphics at the press of a button, and provides some of the most classic puzzles that the 90's point-and-click adventures had to offer.

10/10

The theme of the game is a little bit of film noir detective fiction, a little bit of the Mexican Day of the Dead. In the land of the living, the graphics change to a kind of twisted photo cut-and-paste look.

The best thing about Grim Fandango, as with all other classic LucasArts point-and-click adventures is the sassy humour. It works extra well in the context of a noir crime thriller like this. The story has all the basic hallmarks of a Raymond Chandler private-eye novel, with layers of absurdist jokes and puzzles on top.

My only issue with the game is how long it takes to get around on foot. I discovered after a couple of hours that double clicking equals running. The game might be a bit slow for someone without a lot of patience or who gets easily frustrated by puzzle solutions that are deliberately abstract. I wish I had the patience to wait for Manny Calavera to casually walk to each location because it suits his character. Grim Fandango is a game that has a leisurely pace and doesn't really deserve to be rushed.

15 years + late...but i finally end the game.

The story and environment are a perfect match, what more is there to say? The game is a love letter to the "point and click" genre. I completely enjoyed this journey and thats the reason Im sharing this brief review with you, unknown adventure lovers...

Recomendado!

"We may have years, we may have hours, but sooner or later, we push up flowers".

With this remaster of Grim Fandango, you'll find an amazing snapshot of 90s adventure games. With this comes the esoteric puzzles, but that's just part of the charm, there's no shame in using a walkthrough at some point or another. If you can ignore the few bugs that occur while rendering cutscenes, it should run smooth as butter on modern computers for the first time in around a decade.

Highly recommend checking this out at some point in your gaming career.

There's a lot of nostalgia at work behind the ratings here. Grim Fandango starts brilliantly but loses sight of what makes an adventure fun. The story and characters are wonderful, the voice acting on the re-master is fun and expressive, and the theme is engrossing. It's a great start to an adventure game.

What the remaster didn't fix is an obnoxious inventory system and a set of puzzles that explodes outward until the game becomes unmanageably sprawling. Chapter 2 in particular is absolutely nuts in map size and puzzle density. You have some straightforward end goals but an absurd Rube Goldberg Device chain of causation to get there that can't possibly be understood. So instead of working to achieve your goals, you're working to do weird unrelated things just so your inventory will grow or something about the game state will change. It becomes less about intuition and more about "how many things do I have to fiddle with until the story finally advances?" Why am I stealing from a lawyer? Why am I borrowing a metal detector? Why am I helping an alcoholic relapse? None of it has a clear purpose when you do it. The purpose becomes clear when a hundred other things have been set in motion. It makes for intricate puzzles but really rips apart the idea that you're a character with goals and a story.

In total it feels unnecessarily padded out, which is really unusual for LucasArts. It feels more in line with the old Sierra games that were designed to get you buying the game guide. If you're looking for a kick of nostalgia, wait for a sale. Modern game design wouldn't tolerate such an unsatisfying slog. You've been taught to demand better than this by now.

Grim Fandango is a dark comedy neo-noir adventure game and one of the greatest games ever made. It's been almost 15 years when this game was first released by LucasArts in 1998 for Windows. It's universe, story, characters, music are absolutely amazing. It's one of my favorite games of all time.

+ Universe, story, characters
+ Music
+ HD character texture

- There's no hint options

9/10 - Masterpiece

Play this game, and discover what is considered to be the epitome of Tim Schafer's career; an experience not of sight or of sound, but of mind.

Put eloquently, Grim "Mannie" Fandango is the dead's premiere pet detective. When his girlfriend's pet rhino is stolen by poachers, it's up to him to track them down.

This game is like buried treasure, once you find it and open it up you are treated with an amazingly crafted story, wonderfully wacky characters, and graphics/game machanics that were revolutionary for its time. Most negetive reviews here state the game's hard puzzles and not much clarity on how to progress, but honestly that's what makes the game so interesting due to it's challanging nature. I highly recommend playing this game for yourself and explore the land of the dead in all it's former glory.
