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.
To celebrate 12 years of development, a few of the ScummVM team including myself have taken it upon ourselves to mark this occasion with a video affectionally known as ‘ScummVM The Movie!”. Included is a twenty minute animation, showing how the project started in 2001 with very humble beginnings and a few developers – exploding to hundreds of dedicated coders, massive amounts of code and an array of file structures.
As time progresses in the video, you will see how the source code is enhanced, tweaked, organised and expanded with a range of different developers all volunteering their free time to play a part in the success of the ScummVM software. The video also includes many of my enhanced tracks as part of the ScummVM Music Enhancement Project.
