Watch Tim Schafer get wistful about one of his nearest dearest projects

This mini-documentary of a raspy Tim Schafer talking tenderly about Grim Fandango is just great. It has everything a fan of that classic, soon-to-be-revived, adventure game featuring martini-sipping skull-faced rakes could want. There’s 15 minutes of old photos of the gang at LucasArts; props and design docs and behind-the-scenes ephemera; and Tim wearing a Pixies shirt. But the best part is it closes with a personal oath that DoubleFine is going to do this remastering right, which gave me the impression that it will receive more than a beautiful visual overhaul. This one is Schafer’s baby, after all.
