Protection engineering Scum Virtual Machine——Named after the engine Maniac Mansion Script Creation Utility used in the LucasArts classic adventure game——Launched on October 9, 2001. They are not for. Since then, the ScummVM team has broadened their remit and reverse-engineered various games, from plumbers not wearing a tie to Blade Runner.
On this 20th birthday, ScummVM has been updated to version 2.5.0, which now supports 2.5D games. Grim Fandango, The Longest Journey, and Myst 3: Exile now support desktop platforms and add compatibility for more games, including Little Big Adventure, The Journeyman Project 2: Buried in Time, Private Eye, and Crusader: No Remorse.
The ScummVM team wrote: “We wish you a pleasant adventure, a pleasant puzzle solving and exciting journey through the RPG world, and hope to see you in the next few years.”
