Remember when Sony announced during E3 that Grim Fandango, the legendary adventure game from Tim Schafer, would be remastered by Double Fine exclusively for PS4 and Vita? PC fans like myself shed a tear. Why couldn’t this PC classic be re-released for us, as well? Well, those tears of sorrow have become cheers of joy, as Double Fine has announced that the remaster of Grim Fandango will also be coming to PC, Mac and Linux.

Grim Fandango | oprainfall

For the uninitiated, the world of Grim Fandango is the Land of the Dead. When people die, they are sent here to start their journey onto the next life. How they get there is determined by how good they were in their mortal lives. If you were a good person, you get to ride the train straight there. If you were not so good, you might get a walking stick. Our hero, Manny Calavera, was so bad that he needs to work off his debt to society by reaping souls, and then earning commissions from the sale of the goods for the trip to the Afterlife. After years of selling sticks, Manny is looking for a big break, even if it means stealing one from a co-worker.

About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.
