First I'd like to point out that this particular Grim X version is very out-of-date. The app was created for playing Grim Fandango on the Mac, which it was never originally designed for, an equivalent of ScummVM for 3D games. A long time has passed and this version was as REEFDOG has said, its in an early alpha stage. But don't lose hope, as new Residual versions are available on its (new) official web-site: http://residual.sourceforge.net

The new versions come with a GUI launcher and full support for Mac OS X. Also many new valuable features have been added and arrangements are made to support more games, and even more platforms, ranging from the iPhone Touch/iPhone, all sorts of computer systems, to modern gaming consoles!

The project is still in its alpha stage but performs superiorly to Grim X 0.3 listed here, which is, as of January 2010, 4 years out-of-date.

You can join the team, as it is in great need of developers or you can support the team as a trusty follower. The team together with the community hopes to grow in number, little by little and strife towards making these invaluable classical games immortal on various systems of the past, present and yet to come.


Every help is more than welcome and will be warmly accepted. :)

Finally, the Team can be contacted via IRC, channel #residual on irc.freenode.net, or if you wish to visit the forum, you can do so by entering this address: http://residual.scummvm.org
Within the forum you can post anything related to Grim Fandango and Residual, and we will be glad to discuss future focuses, like Escape of Monkey Island, another 3D LucasArts adventure game that will be also one day ready for modern systems everywhere.

So much on that, hope its useful and will be of great interest to the always supportive Mac community. Cheers :)

I'm bust-a-nut happy that this is finally seeing the light of day. However, it should be noted strongly that this is based on the current "early alpha" build of Residual, and as such you should expect rocky sailing. (Tip: Don't press space bar while playing! It seems to hang the app.)

Performance is clunky on my PowerBook G4 (1.5Ghz, 1.5GB RAM), netting around 8-10fps during movement. Dialogue trees and pre-rendered scenes are smooth, but all the "playing" bits are rough.

I only tooled around the office for a bit, so I'm not making this an official review. Download it at your own risk and only to get a taste of what's to [hopefully] come, but it is darn nice to finally see what the ScummVM guys have been working on all this time.
