Was ist ScummVM?

ScummVM ist ein Programm, welches Ihnen ermöglicht, zahlreiche Adventures und RPGs auszuführen, vorausgesetzt, Sie sind im Besitz der passenden Spieldateien. ScummVM ersetzt dabei die ausführbaren Programmdateien, die ursprünglich mit dem Spiel mitgeliefert wurden. Dadurch können diese Spiele auf Systemen gespielt werden, für welche sie nie entwickelt wurden! ScummVM ist eine komplette Re-Implementierung der Programm-Dateien und kein Emulator.

ScummVM unterstützt eine umfangreiche Bibliothek von über 250 Adventure-Spielen - darunter viele Klassiker legendärer Studios wie LucasArts, Sierra On-Line, Revolution Software, Cyan, Inc. und Westwood Studios. Neben bahnbrechenden Titeln wie der Monkey Island-Serie, Baphomets Fluch, Myst, Blade Runner und unzähligen weiteren Spielen werden Sie auch einige wirklich merkwürdige Abenteuer und versteckte Schätze entdecken.

Sie finden eine komplette Liste mit allen Informationen darüber, welche Spiele unterstützt werden auf der Kompatibilitätsseite. Da ScummVM laufend verbessert wird, lohnt es sich, häufiger vorbeizuschauen. Zu den Systemen, auf welchen Sie diese Spiele spielen können, gehören Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, PS Vita, Switch, Dreamcast, AmigaOS, Atari/FreeMiNT, RISC OS, Haiku, PSP, PS3, Maemo, GCW Zero und viele mehr...

Unser Forum und unser Discord-Server sind offen für Kommentare und Vorschläge. Bitte lesen Sie unsere häufig gestellten Fragen (FAQ), bevor Sie einen Eintrag dort verfassen.

Sie können das Projekt unterstützen, indem Sie Ihrer Begeisterung in Form einer Spende über PayPal Ausdruck verleihen. Wir würden uns jedoch noch wesentlich mehr darüber freuen, wenn Sie etwas Programmcode beisteuern könnten.

geschrieben von OneEightHundred

Obsidian, the first supported game of the mTropolis engine, is ready for public testing!

Created in 1996 by Rocket Science Games and published in early 1997, this ambitious 3D-rendered first-person adventure has you journey through 4 surreal, dream-like worlds in search of your lost colleague.

ScummVM currently supports the English and German versions. It features a widescreen mode, improved cinematic quality, and a few bug fixes. A Japanese version also exists, but we need more information about it to support it. Please contact us if you have a copy of the Japanese version or some other language version that we haven't discovered yet.

To play any of these supported releases, you will need a daily development build. You can also download a demo here. If you encounter any issues, please submit them to the issue tracker!

01.08.2022: ScummVM 2.6.0 or: Insane Escapism
geschrieben von The ScummVM Team

Free your mind for yet another ScummVM release!

Nine newly supported games on 6 engines will plunge you into a variety of different settings. Are you able to escape from an alien-infested planet? What about challenging the Lord of the Dead in the Underworld? And have you ever explored the deepest depth of your psyche to see if you really know yourself?

Find out in one of the following titles:

  • Sanitarium
  • Hades Challenge
  • Marvel Comics Spider-Man: The Sinister Six
  • The 11th Hour
  • Clandestiny
  • Tender Loving Care (CD-ROM Editions)
  • Uncle Henry's Playhouse
  • Wetlands
  • Chewy: Esc from F5

Besides adding new games, we are always focused on improving already supported games. Once again, we managed to squash quite a few bugs from various engines. It is always impressive to see bugs getting fixed in engines that are more than 20 years old!

One of the main new features of ScummVM 2.6.0 is a completely new way to view your games in an amazing icon grid overview via our launcher. Accompanied by some very shiny artwork provided by our graphics artists, you are now able to show off your collection like never before. It almost looks and feels like a virtual shelf!

Check out the full Release Notes for a comprehensive summary of how our developers managed to make ScummVM even more amazing!

You can find all of this goodness available for a number of platforms on our downloads page. If you are using Windows, macOS or the Ubuntu Snap package, the autoupdater will assist you in updating to ScummVM 2.6.0.

As always, thank you for your continuous support — happy adventuring!

05.06.2022: Please help with testing the upcoming ScummVM 2.6.0 release!
geschrieben von The ScummVM Team

A few months have passed since we released ScummVM 2.5.1.

No matter if you expect the scorching heat of the upcoming summer or freezing blizzards in winter (depending on your favorite hemisphere): it’s release time again!

Our lovely developers added support, yet again, for a bunch of new ancient games that require testing:

  • Sanitarium
  • Hades Challenge
  • Marvel Comics Spider-Man: The Sinister Six
  • The 11th Hour
  • Clandestiny
  • Tender Loving Care (CD-ROM Editions)
  • Uncle Henry's Playhouse
  • Wetlands
  • Chewy: Esc from F5

Besides these games, we’d appreciate it if you could check our release testing list - maybe you’ll even find your favorite game on there that has been sitting on that shelf for way too long.

And since ScummVM is about playing games in general, we’ve seen quite a bunch of changes across many, many engines - so this is the perfect time for giving your favorites another go.

The AGOS, SCI and SCUMM engine received some really extensive modifications which make all games using those engines very good testing targets as well.

All testing must be done with stable builds, not development ones. Please report any bugs or oddities on our issue tracker.

A detailed list of all exciting new features and fixes is available in our NEWS file.

Thank you very much for your support!

25.05.2022: We're finally ready to ESCape from F5
geschrieben von DreamMaster

After an extended period of time, we're finally ready to announce that the game Chewy: ESC From F5 is ready for testing. This quirky game features the protagonist Chewy as he tries to outwit the evil Borks. Escaping from their high security zone, F5, will just be the start of his adventure.

If any of you have the game and are willing to test it out, we'll welcome any feedback. You will need a daily development build. As always, please submit the bug reports to our issue tracker.

Please note that the ScummVM version does have one major outstanding issue: the music used by the game is in a custom format we've been unable to properly support yet. So only sound effects and speech currently work at this time.

22.05.2022: Google Summer of Code 2022 – please welcome our students!
geschrieben von sev, lotharsm

GSoC Logo

A few days ago, Google announced the list of students accepted for this year's Google Summer of Code.

We are very proud to welcome 4 students this year who will be working on various parts of the project during the upcoming months.

  • Pragyansh Chaturvedi (aka Raikou) will work on improving our DIRECTOR engine. His effort will help us to allow support for many 90s-era adventure games made with the Macromedia Director authoring tools. By implementing more internal functions used by DIRECTOR, Pragyansh's main objective is to extend support for Meet Mediaband and The Journeyman Project (Win and Mac), making them fully playable without any glitches.

  • Michael Hayman (aka Quote58) is about to implement support for The Immortal. The game (released in 1990) can be described as a mix of genres involving RPG elements with action and puzzles. Many changes across different game variants (written in pure assembly code!) will make this an interesting challenge. This project is a continuation of a GSoC task initially started by a former student back in 2018.

  • Emanuele Grisenti (aka grisenti) will be working on a new engine, HPL1. The original sources for this engine got recently released by the original developer Frictional Games under GPLv3. The purpose of this project is to achieve a full port of this engine to ScummVM, with the goal of supporting the 2007 survival game Penumbra: Overture.

  • Avijeet Maurya (aka StableSteady) will pick up several incomplete engines: MacVenture, Avalanche, Glk-Scott, Pink and WAGE. Some of these engines are very close to completion, but not quite there yet. The main objective of Avijeet's task is to identify all missing features and fix existing bugs. The goal for his project is to bring the above engines to a stable state.

The team is very excited about the upcoming weeks – and we hope you are as well.

Please give a warm welcome to our new students! Let's make GSoC 2022 a huge success – together!
