    According to PocketGamer, it's likely that LucasArts is planning or is currently working on a remastered version of one of their most popular adventure games, Grim Fandango. I thought the game looked interesting when I heard it mentioned before, but I never got to play it. Grim Fandango would be the first remastered adventure game I would buy, so I'm looking forward to this being released. I hope it's a universal app, because this would be good on the iPhone and the iPad. The older look from the original compression and rendering may look a lot better at a high pixel-density on the iPhone, though. The dozens of 3D characters were rendered in real-time on top of pre-rendered backdrops, so there's a lot of remastering potential.

    I see other threads posted based off of the rumor mine (some as recent as today), so I figured I post this.

    Would be awesome if it ever happened, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I find it funny how OP actually believes Pocket Gamer's Rumor Mill, like it's ever accurate.

    Doing nothing of importance.
    Somewhere
    Like others, I was excited until I saw it was the Rumor Mill... We have to stop making threads until the game's confirmed...

    Rumor Mill threads should be identified as such in the title. I almost had a heart attack reading the title here. Not funny. :p

    Absolutely hate these people who make rumours without any solid information.
    Grim Fandango is one of my favourite English language games, that article on pocket gamer kind of got me excited for nothing.
