I was reading Grim Fandango Central's CF2 page and there's a link to an unknown GF screenshot, possibly a hint at a sequel in the pipeline. Problem is: The link is completely dead (http://grim.adventuregamer.com/rot/images/gf01.jpg ) and I can't seem to find it anywhere on Google.

The item wasn't posted April 1st, am I missing something?

Thanks for any info (even if it's just a link to an unused GF1 scene)

PS - What adventure games DOES LucasArts have in the pipeline at the moment anyways?

Sam & Max 2 and Full Throttle 2.

Indiana Jones And The Emperor's Tomb will maybe have adventury elements, but let's not charge into another genre definition.

I don't know much about Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

As for the GF2 screenshot, http://www.adventuregamer.com/ belongs to DreamCatcher Interactive and http://www.adventuregamers.com/ ("s" makes the difference) - who were previously the owners of the aforementioned domain - don't host anymore.

The Wayback Machine (http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://grim.adventuregamer.com) has data up to 2000-10-18.

You said it was posted on Apri 1st, also known as April Fools Day. I never saw any joke news about a "grim fandango sequel". No game company in their right mind would post news on a new game on April 1st and expect to be taken seriously.

Well, I really don't want them to make one, but if they absolutely had to I suppose it'd have to be a prequel. Manny's story is over. Another story set in the land of the dead would seem like a cheap attempt at milking Grim's legacy. The problem with a prequel is that personally, I don't wanna know what Manny did in life that got him in so much trouble when he died.

I agree, LT. Worked for the Godfather.

Yeah. But then they made a third one.

Still no sign of that picture, even with that link (it wasn't archived :( ). Seems strange that no-one else can remember it or has it somewhere!

I remember it due to I posted it. Anyway it was posted on October 21, 2000 but it was a simple mistake we later found out. It was an image that wasnt in the game, if I remember right its in the Strategy Guide. So sorry about the confusion, we should prolly get off are lazy asses and correct that. :D
