Grim Fandango Network, circa 2001

The Grim Fandango Network is one of the internet’s first Grim Fandango fan websites, established in 1998 by Michael Yared during the lead-up to the game’s release. This was a time when LucasArts was still enjoying its golden age, had recently released The Curse of Monkey Island, and Google had yet to be founded as a company.

Its singular mission was and is to be the most in-depth Grim Fandango resource on the web. The site has been through a number of permutations, with ownership eventually passing to Ryan Williams in 2004 — who keeps the old ship sailing to this day.

Over the years, the website’s focus has shifted towards archiving and preserving Grim Fandango‘s legacy. It’s now a growing museum of articles, fan work, information, media, websites, and anything else pertinent to Grim Fandango and its dedicated community that thrived for many years.
