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 it's 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 includes:

• Repainted, hi-res character textures
• New, dynamic lighting
• Classic score re-recorded with a full live orchestra
• Over 2 hours of exclusive developer commentary
• Concept art browser

Grim Fandango Remastered

Seeing this, I was pretty excited. Upon loading the game it brought back old memories… Until it crashed. I loaded again… and it crashed (though not in the same place)
This issue seems consistent which does get more than irritating. Considering I’ve never had any other pieces of software hang on me in the 3 years of using a Mac. If this issue should be resolved it would be brilliant, but until then I’ve unfortunately had to give this a pretty average rating.

Could the developers please create a patch, should this be an issue for more than just myself?

Thank you.

(Update 26/03/16) - Having contacted the developers, I’ve been informed that apparently my graphics card doesn’t support the game. Please keep this in mind when downloading. As it’s not stated in the requirements that a machine of just 3 years old won’t run it. It is said that OS X 10.7 or later will be required. I’m using OS X 10.10.5, with no luck.

Feeling slightly robbed of cash with this one.

Totally Disappointed

I played this game when it first came out and loved it.

When I saw it available on the app store I was thrilled as it brought back many a happy memory.

I bought it with high hopes but am totally frustrated, the game will not load. My Mac more than meets the system requirements

Do not recommend this as you will be left disappointed, will be looking for a refund
