Guilty Hiccup: then and now
So E3 gave us the Grim Fandango remaster, first on PS4/Vita, then probably PC/mobile in the future. How much do I love Grim Fandango? I love it so much that my ask page, for as long as I’ve had a Tumblr, has been titled “Ask me about Grim Fandango - uh, anything.” and now my long game has finally paid off and it’s become relevant again. I love it so much that, for the ‘Describe your favourite game and make it sounds as shitty as possible' meme, my version was “You spend four years being dead.” Grim Fandango was the first game I’d ever bought with my own money (Monkey Island III was the second). Grim Fandango is the game that changed my life, like how Les Miserables was the book that changed my life - except now I can still look Grim Fandango in the eye…er, socket and love it. That’s how much I love Grim Fandango.
I love half the cast too, but I love Eva most. When I was younger, I was always dismayed that we never got a conclusive ending for her - then, when Tim Schafer released the original design document for the 10th Anniversary, I was dismayed to learn that she *spoiler* and we never got to see it. So here’s a quick one to Evaluna. She still loves you. ;)
