** Also cut was an encounter with a "Dillopede", a giant demon armadillo-centipede hybrid guarding Maximino's safe where he kept the [[spoiler:fake Double-N tickets]]. The sequence proved too technically challenging and had to be cut.

* DoingItForTheArt: Remastering the game for modern computers wasn't an easy task because no one thought to preserve the original source material in its entirety. The team responsible for the remastering had to cobble together what they could by going through [=LucasArts'=] archives, tracking down original team members who took bits home as souvenirs, and even obtaining modders' homemade code. All that hard work paid off to create a well-received update.

* WorkingTitle: Inverted. ''Grim Fandango'' was the code name for ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' casting - either a shocking coincidence or a bizarre sense of humor on Creator/GeorgeLucas' part, because some actors like Peter Lurie actually thought they were being cast for ''The Phantom Menace'' when they came to audition for the game.

** The final encounter with Hector was going to be much longer, including puzzles in other parts of Nuevo Marrow, such as the "UFO Restaurant" and "Atomic Casino" (which was literally based on a nuclear reactor).
