ScummVM (Rev 35894) (GC misc)

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!

This release is a infrequent build from the Subversion trunk.

Thanks to http://www.nintendomax.com and http://www.tehskeen.com for the news.
