Grim Fandango is a LucasArts adventure game, taking place in the land of the dead where souls need to travel to reach their final destination. It is their second-to-last adventure game, with the game shifting over to a 2.5D world (pre-rendered backgrounds with 3D character models). A remastered version was released for multiple platforms in 2015.

The game contains a scythe, a useful tool for cutting things.

Debug mode

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\Grim Fandango\v1.0 should have a string value good_times set to true.

If running the game under ScummVM, it is enabled by editing %APPDATA%\ScummVM\scummvm.ini, under section [grim-win] and changing game_devel_mode=true

The immediate effect is enabling windowed mode, and skipping the CD media check.

The most interesting hot keys:

  • Ctrl-G: Jump to set (moves to a different area)
  • Ctrl-I: Toggle walk boxes (allows walking through walls)
  • Alt-N and Alt-P: Cycles between viewpoints
  • Shift-O: Toggle object names
