Grim Fandango Design Document Released



I have been meaning to post about this but just didn't get around to it. The design document for Grim Fandango, one of the last great adventure games from LucasArts back when they were more than just a front for Star Wars related ephemera, was recently made available for free online by Tim Schafer, the lead designer.

I haven't been able to have alook at the document myself, which is supposed to be 72-pages long, but I think it is a must-read for any aspiring game designer, even if you are not interested in the adventure genre.

You can also visit Tim Schafer's website here and catch up on what he is currently working on and to see more of his great life lessons and observations of being a gamer dad like in this post and this one.
