Grim Fandango title card

Grim Fandango title card

Well, my deadline came and went, and I’m still working. I tell you, the biggest problem about this company is that people have no sense of humor when it comes to deadlines! I mean, I meant what I said, on the 2nd of February, the dialogue would be… “done.” You know, “done.” But apparently they took that to mean that the dialogue would be done, or even done-done. I thought “done” was perfectly clear to everyone, but I guess once again, I have overestimated everyone’s ability to take a joke.
