ScummVM Hits 0.6.0 Release with Bonus Content
8:21 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

The folks behind the ScummVM project have recently announced the release of version 0.6.0. The update brings with it compatibility with all LucasArts/LucasFilm adventure games. In addition, the classic title Flight of the Amazon Queen has been released as freeware.

Improvements to the 0.6.0 version include new graphics modes and tweaked sound effects. In addition, support with the following titles has been added:

  • The classic V1 versions of the original LucasArts SCUMM games Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken and the LucasArts SCUMM game 'Full Throttle'
  • Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2. Many thanks to Revolution for providing us with the source-code to these games.
  • Support for Flight of the Amazon Queen. Thanks to Steve and John for providing us with the source code to this game, and permitting its release as freeware.
For those unfamiliar with the project, ScummVM allows users to run titles based off the SCUMM scripting utility, which was used to create a host of adventure games in the past. Those interested in downloading it or Flight of the Amazon Queen can find links at the ScummVM site. MacGameFiles has also posted the latest ScummVM iteration for download.
