It is hard to imagine a company lasting 25 years, especially one focusing on games, however that is exactly the length of time Revolution Software have been delighting us with their fantastic selection of titles over the last quarter of a century.
To celebrate, in March they are releasing a vast box set with all of their released games and a number of interviews and assets for good measure. This box set also features an addition which has surprised me greatly. They have also included a selection of the enhanced music tracks from Beneath A Steel Sky I created as part of my ScummVM Music Enhancement Project. ‘Flattered’ is certainly the word!
My attempts to recreate classic point and click adventure game soundtracks on modern hardware and have them playable within the actual games through ScummVM known as the ‘ScummVM Music Enhancement Project‘ has featured in one of Gamer.no’s articles by Erik-André Vik Mamen recently.
A big thank you to Matthias, who noticed that version 1.2 of my enhanced soundtrack for Beneath A Steel Sky was lacking one of the music files (409.flac).
If you are a fan of point and click adventure games, you will have no doubt heard of the wonderful ScummVM software, that allows you to experience and relive this classic gaming genre on modern hardware. Playable on a wide range of computers, consoles and portable devices – ScummVM continues to improve its software and add new titles to its already impressive list of compatible games – ensuring that this gaming genre continues to be enjoyed.
The classic point and click adventure game Simon the Sorcerer is already available for users of iOS, however a new Android version has just appeared featuring my version of the soundtrack as part of my ScummVM Music Enhancement Project.
In the last 20 years, the ‘Simon the Sorcerer’ game series has made millions of players fall in love with Simon. Now you can relive the renowned original adventure in a whole new way, exclusively on Android!
