Cos'è ScummVM?

ScummVM è un programma che permette di eseguire alcuni giochi di avventura "punta e clicca" e giochi di ruolo classici, a patto di averne a disposizione i files originali. Il bello è che ScummVM sostituisce gli eseguibili originari, permettendo di eseguire i giochi su piattaforme per cui non erano neppure mai stati pensati!

ScummVM supporta moltissimi giochi di avventura, per un totale di oltre 250 giochi. Tra questi, molti giochi pubblicati da editori leggendari come la LucasArts, la Sierra On-Line, la Revolution Software, la Cyan, Inc. o i Westwood Studios. Pietre miliari come la saga di Monkey Island, Broken Sword, Myst, Blade Runner e innumerevoli altri titoli tutti da scoprire. Potrai trovare avventure sconosciute ai più ma anche dei gioiellini ingiustamente dimenticati.

Troverai un elenco dettagliato dei giochi supportati (e di quanto siano supportati) sulla pagina di compatibilità. ScummVM è in continuo sviluppo, quindi ricontrollare spesso non nuoce. Tra i sistemi su cui è possibile lanciare i giochi: Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, PS Vita, Switch, Dreamcast, AmigaOS, Atari/FreeMiNT, RISC OS, Haiku, PSP, PS3, Maemo, GCW Zero e molti altri...

Il nostro forum, il Server Discord e il nostro canale IRC #scummvm su irc.freenode.net, sono aperti a commenti e suggerimenti. Per favore, leggi la nostra FAQ prima di scrivere.

Puoi sostenere il progetto ed esprimere la tua approvazione con una donazione PayPal, anche se i contributi in forma di codice sono molto più apprezzati del vil danaro.

27 set 2020: ScummVM “Interactive Fantasy” 2.2.0 Sees the Light
Scritto da sev

A new release of ScummVM is ready. This is a thrilling one because we are embracing adventure games as far back as 1976! That’s right, the infamous Colossal Cave Adventure, the very first Interactive Fiction game, is now supported by ScummVM.

Besides that (and about 1594 other IF games), we now added 3 more game engines and extended another 4, thus adding the following games to the supported list:

  • Blazing Dragons
  • Eye of the Beholder - Sega CD version
  • Griffon Legend
  • Interactive Fiction games
  • Operation Stealth
  • Police Quest: SWAT
  • Prince and the Coward, English translation
  • Ultima IV - Quest of the Avatar
  • Ultima VI - The False Prophet
  • Ultima VIII - Pagan

As you can see, we continue our exploration into the world of RPGs.

Other notable changes are: a fully rewritten MorphOS port; a new subsystem for automatic saves present in nearly every engine we support; Right-To-Left display support in our GUI; updated MT-32 emulation code and Discord Rich Presence.

We now support additional different game versions, and have noticeable improvements to Illusions, Kyra, Lab, Queen, Titanic, Xeen and ZVision engines. There is also improved support for Maniac Mansion, NES and Apple //gs versions. As usual, we continue fixing original SCI script bugs in over 30 games and added Roland D-110 soundtrack support to these games.

Of course, you can find the comprehensive Release Notes here.

Grab your copy from our downloads page, or, on Windows or macOS, let the automatic updater fetch it for you.

In addition, we will be releasing a new Android port into the Beta Channel and will need your help with testing. That would be great for us to get your feedback at the Android Port subforum.

Time to dive into a nice Interactive Fiction or fry some monsters in Ultima with a Blazing Fire, if you’re a dragon of course.

Discord rich presence

The next version of ScummVM will support Discord rich presence, so you can show off to all your friends that you're playing ScummVM and the exact game you're playing. But to make the most of this feature, we need game icons.

If you ever wanted to contribute to ScummVM but couldn't find anywhere to apply your art/design skills, now’s your chance! Check out the new Game Icons repository for more details on how you can help.

30 ago 2020: Please help us with testing upcoming ScummVM 2.2.0 release
Scritto da sev, criezy, md5

Hello world, it is time for us to release the next version of ScummVM. Thus, we really need your help with testing the stable builds before the upcoming release, so we ensure better quality.

Please, pay your special attention to the following new titles:

  • Blazing Dragons
  • Eye of the Beholder - Sega CD version
  • Griffon Legend
  • Interactive Fiction games
  • Operation Stealth
  • Police Quest: SWAT
  • Prince and the Coward, English translation
  • Ultima IV - Quest of the Avatar
  • Ultima VI - The False Prophet
  • Ultima VIII - Pagan

We would also like you to play through another Sierra game: Police Quest: SWAT. Train to be a member of the SWAT team, and embark into dangerous missions to save civilian lives. This has been recently promoted for testing, so its call for testing has been included in the announcement for the upcoming release.

These games need to be tested with stable builds, not development ones. And report any bugs or oddities on our issue tracker.

We also need your help to update the ScummVM translations for this release. You can see the status of the translations, and work on them on our translations website. To log-in to the web site, you can either use your GitHub or Facebook account if you have one or create an account specific for this web site. Regular contributors can save changes to the translations but new contributors will only be able to make suggestions and vote on the suggestions. However we are looking for new regular contributors for some languages, so if you do not currently have full access and would like to get it, please contact us. Also, a few of our past contributors may have lost their full access a few months ago when we updated our permission settings. If you are one of them please contact us to see your full access restored.

Good luck with your playtesting, and let’s release version 2.2.0 at the end of September!

25 ago 2020: Are you ready for the Legend?
Scritto da sev

ScummVM Team is proud to announce support for a small freeware RPG game named The Griffon Legend. It was originally written in the FreeBASIC programming language by Daniel "Syn9" Kennedy and later ported by Dmitry Smagin to the GCW0 console, which we base this port on.

The original story says:

500 years after the Griffon-Dragon war, the Dragons have returned to reclaim their empire. Cities are falling, everyone is dieing, and the lone Griffon Knight Fayne is caught up in the middle of it all.

Since the game is freeware, you may grab a copy directly from our game downloads page or from the original site. You will need the latest development build to play it. Of course, if you encounter any bugs, please submit them to our bug tracker.

23 ago 2020: A Stealthy ScummVM Operation
Scritto da sev

In 2008 Google Summer of Code we had Kari Salminen aka Buddha^ working on adding Operation Stealth game support. While it was an overall success, still certain important game features were missing. Now, 12 years later, Kari got time for completing his work.

Thus, we are proudly announcing support for the Operation Stealth game also known as James Bond 007: The Stealth Affair in the US release.

Grab your copy of the game, fetch the daily build of ScummVM and give it a go. If you encounter any oddities or bugs, please submit to our bug tracker.
