Grim Fandango F.A.Q.

What is Grim Fandango?
Grim Fandango is an adventure game by LucasArts, and a lot of people say the best adventure game ever made. For more information about Grim Fandango, look here.

Where can I buy the game?
Grim Fandango was released in 1998, so it obviously isn't as popular and easy to find now as it was then. But, if you don't mind using ebay, you could find it there. Or you could try Amazon ( for the US). Grim Fandango has recently been repackaged and re-released by LucasArts, along with some other LucasArts adventure games, so you may even be able to find it in your local PC game store.

How can I try the game?
A demo is avaliable here.

What are the system requirements for Grim Fandango?
See the game information page.

I get 'x' error when I try to play the game.
Read the game information page, then the patch page, and see if that solves your problem. If it doesn't, e-mail me.

I am stuck at 'x' point in the game, what should I do?
See our hints page.

When I try to view 'x' page I get a database error
This is most likely to mean that the site is currently experiencing technical difficulties, and any pages using a database won't display. But this shouldn't happen, so if it does, e-mail me.

I don't like the colour scheme of the site, is there a way I can change it?
Yes, in the menu bar on the left, you will see a small picture underneath the list of pages on the site - these are different colour schemes for the site. Click one, and it will take you back to the page you were on but with the new colour scheme.

The different styles aren't working
Try refreshing the page, as you might be looking at a cached version of the page stored on your computer. If that doesn't work, it might be that you have disabled cookies. If it still doesn't work, make sure you aren't choosing the same style you are already on ;).
