We need a Grim 2! Here's an idea.
You control Glottis who has been having a bad time of it lately, drifting around the land of the dead from job to job. Everyone thinks he's dumb, loud and clumsy. He starts to think about the only good friend he's had in a long time, Manual Calavera, who's been gone to the land of eternal rest for a long time now. Glottis would like to join him, but demons aren't allowed to go there... so Glottis resolves to break in.
Join him as he travels the land of the dead to the gates to peace and finds some way of getting in there so he can be with his best friend Manny again.

What the heck are you talking about Storken? http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif
It quite clearly states at the end of Grim Fandango that demons are not allowed into the 9th underworld, that's why Glottis can't follow Manny.
What do you think of this as a premise though?
Maybe Glottis has to earn a soul and die in order to be allowed to go to the 9th underworld, and he is suckered in by a villain (who is a demon attempting to do the same as Glottis) who tricks him into stealing souls. Glottis unwittingly retrieves these souls under your direction in the belief that he is not doing anything wrong and just borrowing souls that noone wants so he and his villain demon-pal can use them. Eventually Glottis realises he is being used and foils the evil scheme, etc etc.

He's not evil, he's just been duped into doing bad things.
And couldn't you just briefly type out a few of your GF2 scenarios for us?

Why do you guys fight about grim fandango
this is not a grim fandango forum..

Why cant you have a little fantasy in
your mind and just say that there will be a
bad guy that are takeing the 9th underground
with his bad guys and start a hell and
manny got away to the living of dead
and meet glottis again and they are go
together and stop this bad guy.

Manny most stop this guy before the 9th underground is gone forever!!!!!! ....

You people suck. Grim stands alone. There cannot be a sequel. The game has an ending--unlike Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacles, Full Throttle, &c. Now those games seek sequels.

And what I'm most afraid of is LEC making the game without Tim Shaffer's help--seeing EMI, I'm afraid of/for GF2.

I agree, chicken. Don't go that far. CMI isn't my favourite, but it was great!

<small><small><small>/me warn you all about that the following post is 100% unrealted to basically everything, and that it certanly doesn`t belong in this forum</small></small></small>

Take a look at the nicknames of monkey island people everywere, they are mostly from CMI, except those who, like me have a nick adapted from their name.
Items: the Feral Chicken, all the Murrays, all the Guybrushes, etc.
I can`t say I can find any from SMI, except the Guybrushes, but I`m sure you`ll remind me of some afterwards. MegaMonkey I guess.
From LCR it`s Rapp Scallion, Largo LeGrande, and some others.
CMI: Already said that.
EMI: I exclude the Clues and Hints forum, because a lot of people called things like Jojo jr. and Timmy(numbernumber*) and Deadeye Dave or whatever asking how to get off the ship in the beginning.**
I don`t want you to see my point, cause there ain`t one. Just thought I`d say it, I`ll probably get a lot of people saying blah blah blah ~~~~~~~~~~~ you`re "#%!%&! stupid and stuff like that, but so what.

True, but I only had 'The Feral Chicken' as I wanted something to do with my surname (Chicken).

If my brother didn't already have it, I'd have had El Pollo Diablo, or Rubber Chicken.

I think Feral is the best though http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

You mean like "Rubber Chicken with a Pulley in the Middle". I like that joke.
I knew about that, but I meant others as well. Actually I only wanted to use asterisks, which must be really funny if you`re writing a book. Also I wanted to post a long message.
Join #monkey_island now, or I`ll kill you all.

I know that it's a one-stand game, but it's just that it's such a great game.

quite honestly, if they were to make a sequal to Grim Fandango(best game ever) they would need new characters, and a new plot. I know your probably thinking, OBVIOUSLY, but i mean completly new characters and plot. Forget about manny, and Glottis, as main characters in the sequal, because when you think about it, that'd be stupid(and we all know what happens when they destroy one of ron gilbert's or Tim Schafer's games with a crappy sequal I.E. MI4's ending) Glottis maybe would work as a cameo or minor role, but the only way the hypothetical Grim 2 would be good, would be if it was completly original. Come on, we all have to admit LEC's best games were the original ones (like full throttle, or Sam and Max(the funniest game ever))

zaq

Okay, first of all it could have a sequal, just not the type these idiots are dreaming of. It'd have to have a completly different plot, and main characters, but it could still be in the same setting. Personally, i think they'd have to do something original for any other GA they make, than we wouldn't be so ****ed everytime they tried something innovative. And also, full throttle could never have a sequal, because unlike Grim, it wasn't about a universe, and what was going on outside the main plot, but it was a fairly one sided plot. don't get me wrong, it was a great game, but your a fool to think it would be better to make a sequal out of than Grim. i think they needa make sequals to like Sam and Max, or DOTT, after all, the guys who did Sam and Max(w/ the exception of stever purcell) are still there. But personally, i would be happiest if the next game they announced was a completly new and origanal GA(so long as it is not like the boring DIG)

dudes! CMI sucked! The ending was simple. The game was short. It wasn't that funny. EMI was ten times better, you guys have to get over that it was in 3D. They did a really good job(although the last parts of the game were almost as sad as CMI's)

Learn to edit posts, Zaq.
Tim Schafer doesn't agree with you about an FT2, because it's no secret he's been toying with the idea for years. Besides, Full Throttle, while not awful, is probably LEC's worst adventure game since Maniac Mansion.
There will never be a Sam&Max 2. Steve Purcell created those characters and he took the copyright with him. And he apparently has no interest in loaning it back.

tull, YOUR AN IDIOT, any die hard LEC fan would know after just a few fan site reading, that in quite a few interviews our friend Purcell has said quite often he thinks of a Sam and Max II. AS for FT, how the hell can you say it sucked? Even worse, tjat DOTT(which happens to be between it and MM) is better than it? DOTT sux compared to FT. As pc gamer said, FT had the best ending in any video game. The story and game was original. They had *first* good arcade sequances. As for ruining Magnus's mood, you otta be ashamed. Has Tim really been thinking of a FT2? Probably would be an action game though... STill he has proven himself incapable of making a bad game.

By the way, is old Ron Gilbert doing anything these days besides Put Put?

i think, in grim fandango 2, instead of being manny or glottis, you could be a L.S.A. agent or maybe just some skeleton who worhks for the d.o.d.
