Grim Fandango

Part 1

What the title says. In this thread we will visit the wonderful world of Grim Fandango, an EPIC tale of CRIME and CORRUPTION in the Land of the Dead..

Grim Fandango is a wonderful game made by LucasArts in 1997. It was their first 3d adventure game, and the first one not to use their SCUMM engine (games such as Sam & Max: Hit the Road and Full Throttle used that engine), instead using a new one called "LUA". They made another game using that engine, the somewhat infamous Monkey Island 4: Escape from Monkey Island, a game that I enjoyed much less than Grim Fandango.

So anyways, here it is. Let's Play Grim Fandango!

Good old Lucas Arts logo.

In skeleton form!

Nice sarapes in that skeleton band ornament.

Note: Menso is a slight derogatory term. You could translate it in english as "dumbass". Or some similar term indicating that the intelectual capacity of the person is subpar. Or whatever.

Note: That's his file cabinet, the open door says "Premium clients". Due to not geting any premium clients, Manny transformed it into a closet thingie. Sorry for not capturing the correct instant.

Note: "¿Qué es esto?" is Spanish for "What is this", he just recieved a message in his pneumatic tube thing.

And that's it for the first post of this Let's Play thread. That was just the intro, NEXT: Conversations with Eva, exploring the building, checking stuffs. Meeting Domino.
