When we were compiling the list of games for this year’s 31 Days extravaganza, Joe mentioned Grim Fandango. I jumped on the suggestion, because I had bought the game back when it came out, but I didn’t have easy access to a PC, so I never got around to finishing it. This was my chance to finally rectify the situation. Having played through the game now, I can say that what I had originally thought when Joe suggested it was true: this isn’t a horror game. Grim Fandango is an adventure game with a film noir story and a Mexican Day of the Dead aesthetic.
