The PS3 has a whole bunch of classic systems that can be played on that ever-powerful cell, but Scumm in particular looks to be chugging right along. For those of you who don’t know what Scumm is, it’s not just the stuff that sits on the bottom of your bathtub. It’s a scripting language originally developed by LucasArts to craft some of the most memorable point and click games ever made. The way ScummVM works in particular is that unlike a traditional emulator, it takes the actual uncompressed game files and gives them an environment to run in. That means all of those Scumm games will work on operating systems they weren’t even designed for.
VM has been around for quite some time on pretty much any platform you can imagine, but soon they will have a new version to unleash on the masses. It comes with full support for 3 Skulls of the Toltecs, Eye of the Beholder, Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon, Hopkins FBI, Tony Tough and the Night of Roasted Moths, and The Journeyman Project: Pegasus Prime alongside all of the other amazing titles allowed in previous versions. For the folks that remember a better era for LucasArts, this future release could be your ace!
