Happy 10th!
 
What's everybody's plan on celebrating GF's 10th birthday? Breaking out your old copy and going through the nightmare of reinstalling it? Making some cool GF fan art? Going on a field trip to Mexico or to some Art Deco buildings? Making an extra level to GF? Or simply partying?

I was hoping to do something cool for the 10th anniversary this year, but alas my skills in art and computers are pathetic. I am hoping on giving a shot at making an installing guide for GF on ubuntu, but so far it's been difficult and I don't think I'll be able to do it till after mid August. If I'm lucky I can get it done by GF's original release date of October 30th.

However we can all look forward to Thrik's rerelease of the gf.net site where I'm hoping to see some new content! And don't forget to check out the folks at the DOD http://www.grim-fandango.com/ for new art!

Happy 10th Grim Fandango!

I've already done my bit...

James Isaac 07-05-2008 09:00 AM

When is the 10th anniversary?

I'd better get started with those updates

Thrik 07-05-2008 11:08 AM

October 30th, like he said. :D

I'll naturally be giving GF another replay, whilst also despairing that it's been one flipping decade since I first experienced the game. Ten years! Man. :(

Shuz 07-06-2008 08:30 AM

Yep, another replay is what I'm doing. It's been over a year since I last played so I'm quite excited :)

itchythesamurai 07-06-2008 09:06 PM

Wow, it being ten years really puts things in perspective for me. Definitely have to fire it up again. Sure I still remember every solution to every puzzle somehow.

Have the issues regarding the graphical corruption on the Nvidia 8xxx series been solved yet?

If so, I'll definitely play again.

I still haven't forgotten about those memorable characters, the places... the music. I wish there were more of those acoustic guitar tunes that enforces the atmosphere of the empty, peaceful places... They always bring peace to my mind, feeling like it's only me and the nature alone...

Colossal 08-25-2008 08:46 PM

Playing the game and play some of my favourite songs.

stewlil 08-27-2008 09:37 AM

Yeah ill go for a run, attempt to get it finished in one day.

the late D. Hurley 09-02-2008 12:33 PM

I'll sit down on the couch, lean back, and play the entire grim fandango soundtrack. Afterwards I'll replay year 3 and 4

thats the spirit!

maybe ill install it to view the cutscenes, those are really good!

and yeah! year 3 and 4 is by far the best! i love the dark feeling of those

Mr_Calavera 10-10-2008 10:10 AM

10 years already! Dang, we're overdue for Grim II!

Coincidentally I just installed and started playing GF again this week. It had been over a year and I had the urge again. Thought I'd check in here and say Olla!

Nick Virago 10-11-2008 07:08 PM

Oops, I hadn't noticed there was already a 10th anniversary thread, sorry.

King Dando 10-14-2008 10:38 AM

October 30h eh? I'll probably blast through the game and see if I can tab out another song or two if I have time. I may also pick a song and try to recreate it in Famitracker, just to see what Grim Fandango might have sounded like had it been released on the Nintendo Entertainment System :)

VampireNaomi 10-17-2008 05:11 PM

I'm going to be a traitor and probably do nothing since I'm horribly busy and must gather my strength for NaNoWriMo. However, this could be a great excuse to finish playing the German version of the game.

At the very least I'll blabber about the game in my LJ in hopes of introducing someone to it.

Well, still haven't been able to get it to work with Vista (THE ONLY PROGRAM TOO...that's the real killer...the only one that doesn't work is my favorite :p ), so I'm just stuck reminiscing...it's okay though...I don't have too much time to play it right now anyway...

Man 10th anniversary yesterday, Halloween today, Dia de los Muertos this Sunday, it's like a holy week for Grim Fandango.
