Hello GAMERS! Time for some throw back memories! In this month, PlayStation Plus gave us this gem of a game: Grim Fandango Remastered. It is the good old classic point and click genre. Solving mind bugling puzzles, without too many clues. Some puzzles might even tempt to break the spirit, but never give up, because the story is absolutely enthralling.
The story revolves about Manny Calavera, a travel salesman in the afterlife. Dressed as grim reaper with scythe and all. Manny is not happy with his job, on top of that, the company cheats on him. Stealing away all the rich and good clients from him, Manny starts his investigation and tries to string 1 good customer.
This soon escalates in a roller coaster of events. Manny gets fired the moment it’s found out that he “stole” a client and the client gets on a false trail to walk the land of the dead. Manny sets after her on a quest to redeem himself and help her get to the final destination.
Luckily, Manny is not on his own. During his adventure he is assisted by his friend Glothis, a big orange demon, with a heart of gold. Together they make an incredible duo with lots of humor and wise remarks.
Traveling all over the world of the dead, from El Marrow to even end of the world. Manny and Glothis get to meet many people, both good and bad on their quest. In the end they discover a plot so dastardly which it really enthralls you to see it to a good end.
This game we played is the remastered version. However this game originally got released in 1998. Up until this year, the game has escaped ever since. So, for that, we really got to thank PlayStation for giving us this opportunity to finally play this jewel. Finishing off with this quote:
