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 games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

Some of the adventures ScummVM supports include 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; Westwood Studios’ The Legend of Kyrandia and games based on LucasArts’ SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more. You can find a thorough list with details on which games are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM 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…

Release notes:


I would REALLY appreciate any feedback on this new preview 2 release of the upcoming 0.11.0 release for the GP2X.

This release fully supports all GP2X’s (F100 and F200 with touchscreens) however I am not able to extensively test these releases as I do not have a GP2X.

You can download the release from the forum feedback thread here.

This should support all new games added in the 0.11.0 release including Elvira 1 & 2, Lure of the Temptress and Waxworks (Amiga version).

With the exception of a possible bugfix Preview 3 release this is pretty much what will end up as the official 0.11.0 release.
