Grim Fandango is a dark comedy neo-noir adventure game released by LucasArts in 1998 for Windows, with Tim Schafer as the game’s project leader. It is the first adventure game by LucasArts to use 3D computer graphics overlaid on pre-rendered, static backgrounds. As with other LucasArts adventure games, the player must converse with other characters and examine, collect, and use objects correctly to solve puzzles in order to progress.
A remastered version of Grim Fandango was announced during Sony’s press conference at E3 2014, and is being developed by Schafer’s current studio Double Fine Productions. The remastered title will be available in January 2015 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms.
