Grim Fandango remaster coming to PC

Those who closely followed E3 2014 no doubt heard that a remastered version of the classic underworld noir adventure game, Grim Fandango, was announced as a PlayStation exclusive, much to the dismay of its ardent fans on its birth platform, the PC. But let’s be frank: “exclusive” is more like “initially limited to” nowadays. Double Fine has confirmed as much, announcing a simultaneous PC release — “So everyone can play day one and not have to worry about those spoilers you’ve been successfully avoiding for the past fifteen years.” (Spoiler: everyone dies) — on Windows, Mac and Linux along with its PlayStation brood.

“Reap your heart out! We’re pleased to announce Grim Fandango will also be available on PC, Mac, and Linux alongside PlayStation 4 and Vita,” Double Fine’s Twitter account declared. Pretty sure Linux is on the PC as well, but let’s not get picky about great news. Originally released in 1998 as a critical success yet commercial failure (as seems to be the case with most germinal titles), the heady mix of Aztec spirituality and gritty noir nods endeared it to all that were willing to come to grips with its tank controls.

Grim Fandango has continued to receive love to this day, with a mod earlier this year crowbarring in point-and-click support — as the great Huitzilopochtli intended — so it’s a great time to reacquaint yourself.

    Cannot wait for this. Grim Fandango was and still probably is one of the best games I have ever played.
