Grim Fandango retrospective - how the re-release got greenlit.
There's a lovely portion at the end of this video where Tim talks about how, after the first few printings of a PC game, most PCs will no longer support it. Grim Fandango has been kept alive via a fan community that has continually improved and updated the game, from HD mods to point-and-click support to actually fixing bugs that the game shipped with, back in the day - and he talks about how he intends to reach out to that fan community to ensure that all the improvements they've added to it are retained in the re-release. Very cool!
