Designer Diaries

While putting Grim Fandango together, designer Tim Schafer produced a series of diaries for GameSpot that chronicled the ongoing development of the game. Since they’re no longer available in their original location, we’ve preserved them for your enjoyment. They’re grouped by when they were published, which was often some time after being written.
