Grim Fandango NOT A SEQUAL

posted by dazz1286 on - last edited - Viewed by 256 users

I was looking at some of the forums on here about Grim Fandango and how a lot of people are opposed to a sequal because the story of the first was so good. which it was!!!

However I wanted to engage the idea of having a Grim Fandango game but with a different character in the lead thus not having to back track or tread on the toes of the previous story line.

Maybe one with Glottis or something. Following this idea, what are peoples thoughts and possible story ideas?

    The only way I could see it working is if they did it like the Dante series. First. Hell. Then. Purgatory. Then. Paradise. Without Tim Schafer it's impossible.

  • I have a few of ideas:

    1. Manny and Meche arrive to the 9th underworld only to find out that it isn't all it's cracked up to be, in fact it is just a world full of many dangers. Manny and Meche must then spend their time trying to find a passage back to their previous world.

    2. Manny and Meche arrive at the pearly gates. St. Peter says that for some strange reason, Manny's name is not on the list (of people allowed into heaven). Manny must go back on a mission to prove himself worthy of a place in the 9th underworld.

    3. Manny discovers that Glottis is in a spot of bother or some major trouble and must return to help him.

    ...okay then, you come up with a better one!

  • Manny goes to the beach

    Now accepting offers for the script

  • It'd have to be a new character, Manny's tale is over. But you could still have other characters show up, like Glottis and the sea captain etc.

  • How about we all play Brutal Legend and be happy. Stop telling creators what to create.

  • It's not out til tomorrow!

    We got Oct 15th release, so not too bad of a delay.

    And its not an adventure game, which is what most folks here are fans of.

    Talking about adventure games >>>> playing RTS/Action/Driving hybrid games.

    (Im still getting it, of course. If only to support TS)

    And maybe that's not what he wants to make. But he's going to make what he wants to make and not spend his career chasing his shadow.

  • Must...wait......another....11 hours...

    GAH!

    Brutal Legend is gonna be awesome. Reviews gave it 8.5~9.0, so even though it's a TS it's a hit with the mainstreamers. I'm looking forward to it, it's fun sometimes to just play something mindlessly fun, especially if it's made by Tim Schafer.

    Let Tim move forward. Let him make the awesomeness.

  • Too many gamers want sequels. Encourage new and original IP's instead of whining about the modernization of old ones. Spin offs are no more welcome than sequels are. If it is not intended for continuation nor a series originally - they should let sleeping coffers lie.

    Some of my favourite titles are stand alone: killer7, Ico, Grim Fandango, Hotel Dusk etc.
