I was reading the designer diaries on the GF page again -> http://www.grimfandango.net/?page=diaries
and it all got me excited again, really! Tim Schaefer is such a great guy, reading his diaries reminds me of Manny and the characters so much.
This game is one of the greatest experiences in my life, it may sound childish, but I dont give a damn
I even name my computers after Grim Fandango characters haha. My cousin nicknamed herself Meche and its still her favorite name/ character for everything, even her hamster
Yeah, the good old times. I still remember the day when I went out to buy GF... on a cloudy saturday. My sister and me put some money together and I went to the nearest shop in town to get it. And there it was, the package ( that I still have of course
) lying in front of me, so I grabbed it and went back home. While waiting for the bus home, I checked out the box and I was pretty worried that I cannot play it on my crap pc. In the bus crazy ideas came into my mind, like someone could take away my precious game xD
But I arrived fine and it was working decent on my pc too, so I was a lucky kid.
It took us 4 weeks to play it thru! some puzzles were too easy and some were out of our league of thinking! ... 11 years ago.. 11 years....
Oh and its very hard to replay this game, I can ( sadly ) remember everything :/
