Grim Fandango Concept Art

I was slightly harsh on the poor surrealists earlier, perhaps calling them talentless hacks was overstepping it a bit but I still stand by my dislike of their work.

Anyway, to wash away the bad taste here's some classic game concept art of Grim Fandango, one of my all time favourites. The artstyle borrows from classic Mexican Folklore and mixes it with Film Noir, in a tasteful way of course. In my opinion it's the best written video game of all time a perfect mix of humour, story and character development and considering how much of a joke most game writing can be , Grim Fandango is such a great experience.
