Remake of one of the greatest adventure games ever released. No idea if this is the standard price, but I was honestly expecting them to charge the full £30 which I would have happily paid!

One of the all time greatest point and click adventures.....

Should also mention that it's to be released on the 27th Jan. Even if you don't believe in pre-orders, remember the date and check it out once it's released

Also apparently the pre order is exclusive to GOG

Um this is full price isn't it ?

EDIT: Has to be a cold vote as it is full price and wait a week and you will be able to buy it elsewhere

"Grim Fandango Remastered marks the return of gaming's most recognisable, and notoriously unavailable, cult classic - now on Windows, Mac, and Linux. This upcoming release got everybody so excited, Tim Schafer even prepared a special trailer all about how you can pre-order Grim Fandango Remastered (and why that’s a fine idea) right now, exclusively on GOG.com for the first week!"

It's the only place you're gonna get it for PC. No idea what other platforms will charge once the game is released

Amazing game! Lucky found a great online port recently and played it once again. Loved every second. There's a group of fans who made a upscaled graphics version... Gave it a little fresh polish

No they just have the first week pre orders. Then available everywhere else.

What ? I could post every new full priced item using the same logic. That doesn't make it a deal. This is just a pre order also. By the time of release everywhere else will have it ?

And where does it say that this will be the full price?

NM, was being a bit pedantic. Obviously understand where you're coming from

The price is $15 US which seems right but thinking about it if Steam did release theirs they would probably regional price it which GOG don't do. Although GMG and others you can use US VPN's and voucher codes.

I will wait for a Steam version but change my cold opinion to hot until we see what happens next week

Edited by: "jaystan" 13th Jan 2015

It's a deal as you can't get this anywhere else today at this price :-p

Heat from me

Great price for a great game. Can't wait for this to come out

Wonder if its in the VIP section with a cheeky discount...

Full Price and Double Fine .. not a good deal IMO

No more pre-orders from me for this bunch of charlatans ...

They'd have to mess up pretty bad to make a hash of re-making Grim Fanango

Best game ever made. Can't wait for this!

Excellent game and price. Also available on PS4/Vita apparently but only in US for pre-order on PSN at the moment it would seem. PC is the way to go anyway!! Heat added.

What you mean like your post?

Seems expensive for an old game and loads more than the Monkey Island games, but thanks for making me aware it was coming out, but I don't think I'll be an early adopter

Apparently there's to be a Day Of The Tentacle Re-Mastered too, now this would be the. best. game. ever. made!

Holy moly have some heat just for making me aware this is coming out! Best game ever made IMO.

Clambake!

Reasonable price but I don't do GOG. I'll probably wait for a cheap Steam key I think.

So, what IS that stuff they pack canned hams in, anyway?

Finally! Been waiting years for this.
Next, Toonstruck Remastered and Toonstruck 2 please

Wonderful game (when I played it many years ago). Terrific humour and oh so stylish. Will be interesting to see what the experience is like (apart from improved graphics) many years on.

never played this so keen to check it out

It would have been nice if they had implemented widescreen resolutions. It's expensive for a texture pack. If you don't already own the original then great, but then again it's the nostalgia that is the pull.

Never really clicked with this when it was released first time around many moons ago. Not sure why. Was a huge Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, DotT fan. Hell, I even loved playing Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders! But at a loss as to why I never enjoyed Grim Fandango.

Still, going to give this another bash on release to see what I missed first time around.

I thought this was coming out for the PS4 only, nice to see it getting a PC release, where it started.

The humour is there, I think the main problem first time around was 3D adventures were a little ropey in playability back then in its relative infancy compared to now...despite at the time gorgeously designed graphics the interface was a little clunky.

knowing double fine of late it'll be 50% off within a few weeks or appear in a cheaper bundle

Was really looking forward to this until I found out that it was "remastered" not "re-made". I'll still buy it on steam in a few months for a few pence because it is a wonderful game, but apparently all they are doing is saving out the cutscenes with a better, more modern, compression algorithm, fixing the awful controls and collision detection (looking forward to being able to play it as point and click rather than bad tank controls) and then enhancing the textures and lighting (but leaving the backgrounds and models as they are. Oh and they are re-recording the score which might be good because the soundtrack, graphics and story were all excellent at the time it came out.

I'd pay £30 if it was a "re-make" with HD backgrounds and high detailed characters (they could look like papier mache day of the dead masks rather than real skeletons) but as a "re-master" I'll wait till it's in the bargain bin.

The 'tank manouvre' interface has been replaced, so it's not has awkward to control. Still a lot for a texture pack (a better version of which can be found online for free) but it really is a cracker of a game. Released the same year as Half Life, and still managed to pick up a Game Of The Year award.

Good old days, them.

Brilliant description, 'tank manoeuver' never thought of it like that, but that is exactly what the interface was like moving manny.

Beautiful game.

Loved this game can't believe other people still remember it.One of the only games I ever finished.Time to download
