ScummVM v0.8.1 released
January 31, 2006 by admin
ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical
point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data
files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables
shipped with the game, allowing you to play them on systems for which
they were never designed!
ScummVM lets you run these adventures: Adventure Soft's Simon the
Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution's Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and
Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep's Inherit the
Earth; Coktel Vision's Gobliiins and games based on LucasArts' SCUMM
(Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system. SCUMM is used for
many games, including Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max
and more. Compatibility with supported games is continually improving,
so check back often.
Among the systems on which you can play those games are Windows, Linux,
Mac OS X, Dreamcast, PocketPC, PalmOS, AmigaOS, BeOS, OS/2, PSP, PS2,
SymbianOS/EPOC and many more...
