Way back in 1982, Tron took viewers inside the simulated world of a mainframe computer gone awry.

The Land of the Dead has already been host to one outstanding classic (perhaps you've heard of Grim Fandango?), but CMMN CLRS is hoping there is plenty more enjoyment to be found in the afterlife in the indie German developer's upcoming "creepy-but-cute" point-and-click adventure PRIM.
