Grim Fandango

Grim Fandango is an adventure game developed and published by LucasArts. It was released in 1998 and is known for its unique setting and distinctive art style. The game was directed by Tim Schafer, who also co-wrote the script.
The story is set in the Land of the Dead and follows the protagonist, Manny Calavera, a travel agent working for the Department of Death. In this afterlife world inspired by Mexican folklore and film noir, souls must journey through the Land of the Dead to reach the Ninth Underworld, their final resting place. Manny, who was once a less-than-ideal salesman, becomes entangled in a conspiracy that spans the afterlife.

Grim Fandango review

Computer and Video Games (1999): "The puzzles get tougher as you go on, although their nature will probably be familiar to the people who've played the Monkey Island trilogy. Plus there are numerous references to past adventures to let you know who's game you're playing. The characters re very imaginative and their interactions funny. In short, it's what we've come to expect from LucasArts. And we want more of it, and maybe a new Sam and Max game while we're waiting!"
