Grim Fandango Remastered

About

Something’s rotten in the land of the dead, and you’re being played for a sucker. Meet Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death. He sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. But there’s trouble in paradise. Help Manny untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.

One of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time is now back, better than ever. Grim Fandango‘s epic story of four years in the life (or death) of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won GameSpot’s Game of the Year award upon its original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Remastered Version Features

  • Repainted, hi-res character textures.
  • New, dynamic lighting.
  • Classic score re-recorded with a full live orchestra.
  • Over two hours of exclusive developer commentary.
  • Concept art browser.

Broken Age

Broken Age is a family friendly, hand-animated, puzzle-filled adventure game with an all-star cast, including Elijah Wood, Jack Black and Masasa Moyo. Funded by a record breaking crowdfunding campaign and designed by industry legend Tim Schafer, Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons.

Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. The player can freely switch between their stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow.

Starring:

  • Elijah Wood as Shay
  • Masasa Moyo as Vella
  • Jack Black as Harm’ny Lightbeard
  • Jennifer Hale as Mom
  • Wil Wheaton as Curtis
  • Pendleton Ward as Gus

Grim Fandango Remastered is currently available for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. Broken Age is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS Vita, PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and Ouya.
