ResidualVM 0.1.0 Released – Grim Fandango Joy Returns

You may have already heard of point and click adventure software ScummVM, that allows fans of the genre to relive their happy memories on various devices to which the games weren’t necessarily originally intended.

ResidualVM instead concentrates on ‘3D’ adventure games and with this release Grim Fandango is playable.

The day is finally upon us, after 9 years, 4 months and 6 days, we are proud to announce the first stable release of ResidualVM, and what day would be better for this occasion, than the end of the world as we know it. (or so the Mayan Mechanical Gremlins told us).

This initial stable release of ResidualVM now opens the world of Grim Fandango to a modern audience, whether you are using Windows, Linux or OS X, you’ll now be able to take your 4 year journey of the soul, and find out if that compass in the handle actually WILL come in handy.
