OnlySP: Grim Fandango Remastered is out now on Steam, and due soon on PS4 and Vita. Watch the video below for the first 15 minutes of Double Fine’s revamped version of this classic adventure.
I wish they would have put some more effort into the remastered graphics, and making it widescreen and all. Grim Fandango did NOT look great when it came put, and that was not because of the creative design behind it (which is gorgeous), but simply because of the hardware limitations at the time. They could have taken this opportunity to really make the game how they originally envisioned it, of those limitations wouldn't have been there. It's disappointing to see that after very poor remasters of Monkey Island 1 and 2 (different studion, I know), they once again haven't really lived up to the possibilities that modern age technology offers. Obviously, it's still a great game. Always has been, always will be. But one can't help but wonder how fantastically amazing this COULD have looked if they had gone all out with it, instead of this quite basic and lazy 'port'.
yet the game won several Graphics awards the year it released (1998). Pretty sure everything about that game was as intended. The aesthetics of the skeletal figures were heavily inspired by the calaca figures used in Mexican Day of the Dead festivities and were spot on IMO.
Plus the games great and its priced fairly.
What? So what your saying is you wanted a remake.. Not a remaster? And the monkey Islands where brilliantly done. There is no pleasing some people.
I'm either gonna have to scrape and save for a PS4 or borrow my brother's Vita for this one. Love Double Fine. Now make Psychonauts 2 already!
