Having fulfilled these last days the 30th anniversary of Monkey Island, one of the greatest classic adventures of all time, lovers of the genre are in luck since up to three of the most remembered will be incorporated in less than two weeks to the catalog of Xbox Game Pass. We are talking specifically about the remastering of Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle Y Full Throttle, which will arrive on October 29 at Microsoft’s subscription service.
Tim Schaffer himself, one of the great personalities of the adventure genre and founder of Double Fine -now owned by Microsoft- has congratulated on Twitter, and we are talking about three of the games that made him earn a name in the industry.

On the one hand, Grim Fandango introduces us to the charismatic Manny Calavera, a travel agent towards death. On the other hand, Full Throttle tells the story of the biker Ben Throttle, while Day of the Tentacle stars three friends who fight against a mutant tentacle that wants to conquer the world. Both are three really fun adventures and considered one of the best in the genre.
What’s coming to Xbox Game Pass this month
As we saw previously, they are not the only games that arrive this October in the Xbox Game Pass catalog. Already at the beginning of the month nothing less than DOOM Eternal, a part to celebrate Microsoft’s purchase of Bethesda for a whopping $ 7.5 billion. Others have also arrived like Forza Motorsport 7 or Brutal Legend, precisely by Double Fine, while some games such as Metro 2033 Redux The Saint’s Row IV Re-Elected.
