Interesting documentary. I hadn't realised that Grim Fandango was considered to be a bit of a commercial flop (perhaps flop is too strong).
Grim Fandango didn't do all that well when it came out, possibly because of bad marketing or the time it came out, when other types of video games were gaining prominence, or because there was a lot of griping about the keyboard controls. It sure wasn't the reviews. Even Gamespot
I doubt Tim Schafer will ever top Grim Fandango but with luck we'll get a good game.
