Sony made a point of touting Grim Fandango coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita at its E3 press conference. The inventive view of the underworld can't be contained there, as Double Fine has announced it will hit PC, Mac, and Linux as well.

"Reap your heart out!" Double Fine tweeted. "We're pleased to announce Grim Fandango will also be available on PC, Mac, and Linux alongside PlayStation 4 and Vita!"

The re-release of Grim Fandango is said to be a "remastered" version, but Double Fine hasn't detailed what changes are being made. The original was widely regarded as a classic, and still has a score of 94 on Metacritic.

      I am glad they are getting practice in on these inferior remakes before they tackle Day of the Tentacle

        I kinda enjoy DotT as it is. Fandango is hard to run and has the odd controls, but ScummVM makes Day of the Tentacle basically easier than ever to run and its gameplay just works.

        Not that I wouldn't play a new version, but I'd be leery of new artwork quite capturing the feeling of the original.

          The Grim Fandango emulator from the ScummVM guys ("Residual" is what its called) enables point and click controls in Grim, which is totally fascinating.

            Yeah ResidualVM is really awesome, just like ScummVM.

            Really interested in seeing what will Tim Schafer do with this, all the background art was pre-rendered images on a really low resolution. I remember an old PC gamer article about Grim Fandango where they talked about how they made the art at Lucasarts.
