What is a GSV file?

A GSV file is a saved game created by LucasArts Grim Fandango, a 3D puzzle and adventure video game. It contains data used to resume a player's progress. Players create GSV files by selecting Save Game from the game's in-game menu.

More Information

In Grim Fandango, players control undead travel agent Manuel "Manny" Calavera as he attempts to shepherd the recently-deceased Mercedes "Meche" Colomar to her proper place in the afterlife. LucasArts released the original version of Grim Fandango in 1998; Double Fine Productions released a remastered version of the game in 2015.

During the game, players can pause and save their current progress as a GSV file. They can then load that file to resume their progress at a later date. By default, Grim Fandango saves GSV files to its main installation directory, which for the LucasArts version of the game is:

C:/​Program Files/​LucasArts/​Grim Fandango

How to open a GSV file

You can open a GSV file in Grim Fandango (multiplatform). To do so, place the file in the directory your copy of the game uses to store save files (typically either ~/​LucasArts/​Grim Fandango or ~/​Doublefine/​GrimFandango). Then, open the game and load the save your GSV file contains.
