The recent re-release of seminal point-and-click Grim Fandango was a reminder that nostalgia can only do so much to keep the genre relevant. Telltale Games’ simplification of the basics in recent years has both brought adventure titles back to heady heights of popularity and changed the way many perceive the genre. As such, Grim Fandango often frustrated with its plodding, archaic control system and complicated (by modern standards) puzzles. Which is a shame, because at its core, it remains one of the most well-written and genuinely hilarious games ever made. If only there was some way of marrying Tim Schafer’s quirky humor with a slightly modernized version of the adventure genre he and his team once made so beloved.
