ScummVM 0.13.0 Delivers New Adventure Games 69

from the ever-expanding-selection dept.
KingofGnG writes "The classics, by definition, never go out of fashion, let alone if they are the graphic adventures of past decades. The preferred tool of true adventurers is ScummVM, software that works as an interpreter between data files of such adventures and modern operating systems. 6 months after the release of version 0.12.0, developers have now delivered a new main release of the virtual machine, which includes novelties both for the interface and supported games."

    ScummVM has really come a long way and it's cool that they keep adding more game support but I would really like to see an implementation of SCI0/1/2/3 for Sierra adventure games like Space Quest III, Space Quest IV and Leisure Suit Larry 6. Apparently it's not high on their "to do" list, but it should be considering Sierra made such a large impact on adventure gaming in general.

    I was very happy about the previous release adding support for the Kyrandia games. Hopefully we'll see SCI support soon.

    Sane copyright would be 14 years, and I'm being generous here; most studies conducted over the past few years have suggested even shorter terms, including one conducted by MIT and one commissioned by the British government (and then promptly ignored). With 14-year copyright, pretty much all DOS games would now be in the public domain.
