ScummVM Update Brings Tons of New Games Compatibility

Starship Titanic ScummVM

If you are a fan of classic adventure games, then you already know about ScummVM. For the few that don’t know about this engine already here is a quick synopsis. Basically, this engine allows fans to enjoy classics using a new, up to date, rendition of the original engine used. ScummVM brings compatibility with newer hardware (go ahead, try and get some of the supported games running on Windows 10, I dare you) and along with that access to better hardware, some games have seen new fans discover the classics. The latest update to ScummVM brings support for a lot of new old games.

First and foremost, the latest ScummVM brings support for most of the Sierra On-Line franchises such as Police Quest 4, Leisure Suit Larry 6 (hi-res) and 7, King’s Quest VII (my first taste of a SOL game), and Gabriel Knight 1 and 2 among many more. The list of 23 newly supported games is below:

  • Cranston Manor
  • Full Pipe
  • Gabriel Knight
  • Gabriel Knight 2
  • King’s Quest VII
  • King’s Questions
  • Leisure Suit Larry 6 (hi-res)
  • Leisure Suit Larry 7
  • Lighthouse
  • Mixed-Up Mother Goose Deluxe
  • Phantasmagoria
  • Phantasmagoria 2
  • Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties
  • Police Quest 4
  • RAMA
  • Riven: The Sequel to Myst
  • Shivers
  • Space Quest 6
  • Starship Titanic
  • The Dark Crystal
  • Time Zone
  • Torin’s Passage
  • Ulysses and the Golden Fleece

This is a great bit of news for fans of classic point and click adventures. I mean, other than the atrocious Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties, this is a solid list of new games that you could almost throw darts at blindfolded and hit a classic worth your time. Almost. There is always that chance that Karma has fun with your aim and gives you Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties so yeah, be careful there.

In all seriousness, fans of adventure games have already scrolled to the bottom for the download link. The rest of you, what are you waiting for? Phantasmagoria 1 and 2, Space Quest 6, Spaceship Titanic and more are waiting for you to load them up and get lost in their worlds.
