Well, actually, I don't know. But wouldn't a prequel be rather short? I mean, not much would happen with Sal and the game would be dull. A game of Manny would be just too short. Things in Rubacava? Hmmm... not so sure, but I kinda think it's a good idea. There could be plenty of action sequences.

But what about the REST of the Land of the Dead? Surely the Land of the Dead can't be as small as it is in the game! After all, there must be loads of places in the Land of the Dead if it takes a whole year to get from Rubacava to Pueorto Zapato.

But I really think that there could be a way to get Manny out of the Ninth Underworld! Maybe some evil conspiracy uses an evil spell to get him out, which I think was suggested somewhere on this thread.

So I don't know. How about a poll?

I think the subject is a little broad for a poll. Maybe a poll on a basic genre preference would be a better idea.


Jolly good.

UGH. Austin Powers 3. The only good part was the start with all the celebs. Just a load of rehashed jokes.

I dont think Grim should have a sequel, it's fine the way it is. A sequel would ruin the originals reputation as a fine, classy adventure game.

If they DID HAVE to have a sequel, it would be preferable if Manny was not involved. Glottis could make a cameo, of course.

Terrence and Phillip humour is great
And it's there for a reason. South Park isn't just constant swearing, it's a warped outlook on society (In Particular, 10 yr old children). And 10 year old children WORSHIP poop jokes.

Oh, and I don't think Mr Schafer would want a part in ruining Grim Fandango with a shoddy sequel

Aaaah... Tim Schafer. The glory days...

Day of the Tentacle (Brilliant!)
Full Throttle
Grim Fandango (Du-u-u-uh!)

Uh... did he make any more?

I think he helped out with Monkey Island 2 too, not sure. He doesn't deserve ALL the credit though...

Don't want to see it. Grim Fandango was a nigh perfect adventure, and a modern LucasArts sequel is like "a baseball cap on a suit of armour."

they really shouldnt use manny as the main character in the sequel. though a glottis cameo would be fun and manny could have a cameo right at the end of the game. think about it you finally get to the ninth underworld and manny is there waiting for you


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

You know what would be great? The ability to erase all memory of the game, so you could play it over like it was the first time. I'd pay money to be able to do that.


Jolly good.

I think Manny would HAVE to be in it, and i like the idea of some evil force pulling manny into the land of the dead oncemore. New towns could be used, but including Rubacava because I love it! Maybe a new kind of evil force has broken the barrier of the land of the dead and every minute souls are being pulled out of the land of the dead into nothingness, therefore people are dying (again) every minute, and its upto manny to solve the barrier thing.

If that makes sense lol. As long as its still darkish and has the same sort of music, and has MANNY then i'll buy it!

The story is complete, people. Just accept it and move on. GF2 would just ruin a good thing. Like many a series before it, you would sink a great game by giving it an unworthy sequel.

Hey, I didn't say that I don't like the new MI games, I thought they were great. (please though, save your comments on that for another forum or thread...)
