ScummVM, the software created in 2001 by computer science student Ludvig Strigeus, made it yesterday 20 years, celebrating the important event with the launch of the version 2.5.0, which introduces some important innovations.
This is the program that a couple of years ago made Blade Runner by Westwood Studios replayable and that, in general, has contributed in a fundamental way to the preservation of the great classics, allowing them to be run within a virtual machine on any modern PC.
Originally created to only support titles developed using LucasArts’ SCUMM application, ScummVM has evolved over time, opening up to several other games as well. Version 2.5.0 is also compatible with 2.5D titles.
Here is the list of productions added to ScummVM compatibility:
- Little Big Adventure
- Red Comrades 1: Save the Galaxy
- Red Comrades 2: For the Great Justice
- Crimson Crown
- Glulx’s interactive fiction style games
- Private Eye
- AGS games in versions 2.5+
- Nightlong: Union City Conspiracy
- The Journeyman Project 2: Buried in Time
- Crusader: No Remorse
- Spaceship Warlock
