Wow, You Can Actually Play ‘Grim Fandango’ Again

4 Apr

So the guys who designed the SCUMM Virtual Machine (SCUMMVM) have designed the ResidualVM, which lets players finally, finally experience the majesty and wonder of “Grim Fandango,” easily the best adventure game ever made. You can download ResidualVM here, and you can buy a copy of Grim Fandango off eBay for a reasonable amount of money here.

If you’re not sure about buying the whole game, you can download the demo from this site dedicated to the game.

And this is why fans are the best people in the world.

I can’t recommend the game highly enough. It’s a comedy-noir set in the afterlife with a Mexican Day of the Dead theme. It’s by Tim Schafer from his days at the late, lamented LucasArts and is beautifully written, designed and perfectly acted. It’s really, really funny, too.
