ScummVM Ported to Nintendo Gamecube/Wii 28

Croakyvoice writes "Rodolfo Portillo has released a port of ScummVM for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Gamecube. ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games like Simon the Sorcerer, Broken Sword and Flight of the Amazon Queen. You will have to use SD Load to run this on your console." No offense to Broken Sword, but it's all about Day of the Tentacle for me. Update: 04/10 16:45 GMT by Z : Technically, this is a GameCube port. The Wii's backwards compatibility allows it to work there anyway, but it's worth clarifying.

    They keep saying 'Wii homebrew' but it's not. It's GameCube homebrew, which the Wii will play because it's backwards compatible. It's kind of like taping a VCR to a DVD player and claiming your DVD player plays VHS tapes. From all I can see, you won't get a bit extra from the Wii's added power and it will be identical to just using a GameCube.

    People already replied that MM is supported by Scumm, but you don't even need that if you can play DOTT. There is an arcade machine inside DOTT that you click on and play Maniac Mansion as a game-within-a-game.
    DOTT is the best of course!
