The original Grim Fandango won GameSpot’s Game of the Year award following its 1998 debut. Those who’re big on point-and-tap adventures should also check out Broken Age, recently refreshed with an ‘Act 2’ content update at no additional charge.

It’s worth mentioning that Broken Age was designed by Tim Schaffer, the original Grim Fandango’s project leader. Moreover, the game is being published by DoubleFine Productions, a publishing company Schaffer established in July 2000 following his departure from LucasArts.
