Grim Fandago Remastered
PC, PS4, Vita
Another classic Lucas Arts title, Grim Fandago drops you into the shoes of an undead travel agent at the Department of Death. This zany game has been remastered with an updated musical score, new textures and lots of behind the scenes goodies. Grim Fandango's style is a unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore. Not something you see everyday.
Once again a title like this is great as you hunt for objects to solve puzzles and find ways to combine weird items to progress the story over Manny Calavera's adventures. Not exactly your standard video game fair.
Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered
Originally released in 2005, Fahrenheit (known as Indigo Prophecy in North America) was a hailed as a rebirth of the adventure game genre of the mid-1990s. At the time the game set new bounds for presentation and story telling that many reserved only for the cinema. Think of it as a direct inspiration to games like Heavy Rain.
Co-Op players will enjoy a story geared more towards an adult audience as you are thrust into a supernatural style murder mystery. There's plenty of puzzle solving and dialog here to keep you entertained.
