Remastering 'Day of the Tentacle' and 'Grim Fandango'


This talk will cover the history and inner workings of the classic adventure games 'Day of the Tentacle' and 'Grim Fandango'.

Attendees will learn about the internals of the classic SCUMM engine, improving the lighting in 'Grim Fandango' without any 3D source data to work from, the art of debugging and fixing classic bugs when original source code access is not available, and more.
