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

One of the best
First, I didn't encounter any bugs playing on an iphone5, but the axe almost nabbed me...don't drop it close to the camera angle change. That aside, this is an amazing game, by far one of the best point and clickers. Despite what others said, I only found 1 or 2 puzzles to be overly obtuse...they're always a step ahead of you but the logic is sound, even if only in hindsight. Anytime I was really stuck it related to not having clicked on something because at first I had no idea you could drag your finger to highlight interactable objects. So many games like this have puzzles where you pick up an object, put it somewhere else and bam, you solved something. That's literally never the case here, everything has multiple steps and solutions that are as mind blowing as point and click puzzle solutions could possibly be. Great story, dialogue, and art as well.
My Favorite Game of All Time!
Tim Schafer is an absolute master of the Character Adventure genre. Because this type of game involves all of the typical aspects of gaming (mechanics, animation, design etc..) along with the more complexed aspects prevalent in films and literature (story plot, voice acting, humor, symbolism, etc..), this kind of game is considered the most difficult to make. To this day, this is the best example of the genre. A film noir set in the mythical lore of the nine underworlds and the day of the dead. This game has made me laugh and cry and Generally speaking, emotions aren't really something that games are able to create that often. Especially for a game that was made in 1998. If you like this game, you should check out all of Schafer's other games. Psychonauts, the Monkey Island series games, Sam and Max Hit the Road, Day of the Tentacle and even his new one Broken Age.
One of the best games ever made
In a way, this was the most expensive game I have ever played. I couldn't play it on my 3rd generation iPad (no Metal), so I got it from Steam for my 2011 MacBook Air. Unfortunately, it crashed constantly and every time that happened, I found myself going to the Apple website and longingly staring at the page for an iPad Air 2.
And, by the end of Year 2, the frustration won out and I bought a new iPad Air 2. This is the only game I've played on it so far.
That being said, I've been an ardent and loyal fan of Lucas Arts for nearly 30 years now. This game is by far one of their best, and Double Fine Productions served it faithfully when they remastered it. It has a superb, innovative storyline and more lengthy gameplay than any other game I've played on an iPad before (each of the four years could easily be a game in its own right -- I'm glad it wasn't split up into four paid apps like some games are.) The graphics are stunning, the dialogue is funny, and the puzzles are relatively complex. There a couple of bugs here and there, but no show stoppers.
I highly recommend this game to any and every fan of point and click adventure games out there: you won't regret it!
