grim11Anyone that knows me knows that I regularly quote Grim Fandango as one of top 5, if not, my favourite game of all time! Once I saw at the Sony Press conference at last years E3 that they were releasing Grim Fandango on the PSN store on PS4, my heart sank a little deeper in the department of death, as I’m not a PS4 owner, but then a little smidgen of light on the trailer… ALSO COMING BACK TO PC. So the time is now, the time to preorder Grim Fandango on GOG or Steam is now! GET PREORDERING.

Pre-order now: Grim Fandango, the cult-classic point-and-click adventure!‏

grim12GOG had the initial pre order exclusivity, as noted on the trailer below, and have some exclusive pre order content, like a wallpaper, and soundtrack, but you can also now pre order on Steam too (minus the wallpaper), Currently on GOG, Grim Fandango remastered is £9.29 and on steam its £1.70 more at £10.99. I guess its all down to preference of platform when released on the 27th of January.

And if you didn’t know about Grim Fandango, then shame on YOU, but here’s a little about this classic, and what’s included on the Remastered edition.

grimregog1Something’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 it’s original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Grim Fandango Remastered 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
