There’s a group of dedicated fans of the classic PC game Grim Fandango who have been working hard at unofficially modifying the textures and models of the original game. The project is called Grim Fandango Deluxe and they’ve seen a lot of success so far especially last month with a brand new alpha release of a hi-res Manny Calavera model.
Utilizing an open source interpreter called ResidualVM they’ve added polygons to the game’s models, increased the texture quality and upped the resolution of the game. There’s still a lot of work to be done before they complete the project but they’ve accomplished some amazing stuff. Be sure to check out their project blog for updates and more videos showing off their progress.
