Developer: Double Fine Productions
Price: $14.99 (Launch sale: $9.99)
Merely a week after launching the complete version of ‘Broken Age’ in the mobile app stores, Double Fine Productions has now released the amazing Grim Fandango Remastered for both Android and iOS. Though the original game was released in the late 90s, it still holds up today as one of the best crafted adventure games you could ever hope to play and one that I would recommend to anyone who likes dark and weird humor in a heartbeat.
The game takes place in the land of the dead which you will soon learn resembles our own world in many ways. You will be helping the protagonist, Manny Calavera, who is a travel agent at the Department of Death. A conspiracy is in the works and you are the only one who can unravel the mystery and save yourself in the process. And consider yourself lucky because you will get to meet some fantastic characters and experience the fantastic world of Grim Fandango with its excellent writing.
If you have played the original game then you might still want to give this a try. After all, it has been very long since the game’s first release and this version features updated graphics and an updated soundtrack that was recorded with a full orchestra. The price of the game is quite high but if you get it on sale right now you will get the full experience you would get in a PC albeit in pocket form.
