I bought this on a garage sale a few days ago for little money, just to own the package :-) because I always believed that it's not playable on Win7.
Will try ResidualVM as soon as possible...

Good Luck prying the rights to this classic from Disney's cold dead hands. They bought everything Lucasarts, not just Star Wars. Hope GoG does though.

And you just HAVE to include the Brazilian Portuguese dub that was launched in Brazil at the time. I still have the original CDs and actually managed (after a painful and long process) to get it working on Windows XP running on Parallels on my Mac Mini. Sure, it would only serve people who speak Portuguese, but I myself hate translated games and Grim Fandango in Portuguese is 120% funnier and more Epic than the original =)

@langner I read GOG.com and Night Dive said they had a hard time negotiating with Disney, but i can't find where they said that.

This is one of those games that you always wanted to play but something got in the way. Now that I have time to enjoy it I can't get a hold of it. The only chance now that I have of playing the game is if GOG.com can get the go ahead to re-release it. With near 50,000 votes (as of writing) a lot of people want this game. This begs the question as to why the licence holders are dragging their heels when they could be making money.

Do the people who own the license to this game not want my money? This game is awesome and clearly there is a market for it on GOG. I don't understand what the issue is. It's not like it would cost that much to re-release.

ResidualVM would probably help to get Grim Fandago to run on modern computers. Sadly it is not complete.

This is most likely never going to happen because now disney owns Grim Fandango, and Disney would be highly unlikely to care about this game, let alone re-release it.

This game most be re-released to the world in some way. It is simply too good to let it fade away into distant memory. I never finish the damn game and resorting to search for a physical copy on Amazon -- Gog, I implore that you release this game.

Grim works on Win 7. Take your choice: get the patch from LucasArts then get the launcher from Quick and Easy Software or try the solution offered by ResidualVM. I use the launcher but I'm thinking about ResidualVM just to see Manny in hi-res.

I think this is the only LucasArts adventure game I don't have/never played through. I loved all of the others and played them multiple times: Full Throttle, Day of the Tentacle, Fate of Atlantis, Sam and Max, The Dig, etc., but I missed getting Grim Fandango, I forget why now, either my computer couldn't handle it or I was busy with college, but ARGH! I would love to play it now, I'd get every other LucasArts game practically, too. Tie Fighter being at the top of the want list...

Disney Interactive, the media giant's game unit, is going to lay off "several hundred people" beginning next week, sources told The Wall Street Journal 03.02.2014. So, i guess the chances to see Grim Fandango here are pretty slim... I hope I'm wrong, though.

Grim Fandango was my first PC game that I had the pleasure of playing. I would gladly pay to experience this masterpiece again. Thank you Tim Schafer and all the people at LucasArts that helped make Grim Fandango a reality.

I would love to see Grim Fandango on GOG. But I do not think it is going to happen.

Disney was pulling a lot of games from steam store, like Deadpool and other Marvel related games.

I fear Disney will go the EA route and try to make own digital store for games.

The Adventure from my youth i have the fondest memories of. I've played trough it so many times but now even with the help of the community and special installer fixes i cant get it to run anymore.

Yes the Controls might be different to what you are used to, but once you get your head around the story and atmosphere in GF is so deep, you need to ask Manny to help you so you wont drown in it.. hehe ... did you see what i did there :) ?

I hope that GOG manages to get the rights from Disney to re-release this game as it would be a instant buy, heck, f*it i would even buy it at full release price again if it works.

Ooooh rusty anchor....

Balloon twister: Yeah, yeah. Pretty busy. my carpal tunnel syndrome is really acting up. Manny: But you don't have any... tendons...

Balloon twister: Yeah, well you don't have a tongue but that doesn't seem to shut you up, now does it?

I still have those original CDs somewhere and understand a bit of tweaking should allow me to play GF on Win7 64bit. However. I had to come here and upvote so that maybe some day others too can enjoy this great game. :)

@sgoshe Either:
a) Disney has no idea that these properties exist and someone needs to inform them (most likely, they only purchased LucasFilm for Star Wars anyway)
2) They don't see enough profit being made from the sale of these titles to warrant going through all the legal trouble to organize a licensing deal
or
d) They prefer to sit on the IP and let it rot because they don't care about the fans

And yes....I know the Buzz Numbering System

What would be the reasoning behind Disney not releasing this to GOG and making some coin in the process? It is only collecting dust right now.
