a game by LucasArts Entertainment
Just when we were about to chisel out 'Here lies Sam and Max' on the gravestone of adventure games, LucasArts released Grim Fandango and the genre rose from the grave. If anyone was going to do it then it had to be LucasArts, purveyors of some of the funniest and greatest adventure games ever: Day Of The Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit The Road and Monkey Island.
Grim Fandango Mom the adventures of Manuel Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death, who flogs luxury packages to souls on their journey to eternal rest. The humour has more of an edge than previous titles, and combines classic film noir themes with ancient Mexican mythology and some amazing 3D graphics. A true classic.
