ScummVM overview

ScummVM is a classic gaming interpreter and emulator that includes several interpreters for 2D adventures. There is currently support for several interpreters: AdventureSoft (Simon the Sorcerer 1/2), Revolution Software's Beneath a Steel Sky (not yet playable), and a SCUMM interpreter capable of running classic LucasArts and Humongous adventure games using the SCUMM/SPU engine. This includes titles such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max, The Dig, and more.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

I've never used emulators before, so I have a quick question. Does this app allow me to play classic MacOS games --- the type of games you can download from abandonware sites?

Absolutely amazing. My girlfriend and I were huge LucasArts fans and we kept an older Mac running that'd play them. When that machine died and I upgraded to an Intel OSX machine that was incapable of handling the Classic environment, I thought that I'd never be able to play these games again. This not only lets me play all the old games I played in the past, it let me play the games that had been released for PC only that I'd never gotten a chance to check out, like Money Island III.

ScummVM has brought back SO many memories from the point n' click adventure era. Broken Sword, Discworld, I can now play all of my favorites on my Mac... Frequently updated, you can play more and more games with each release.

ScummVM is the most amazing open source project out there. While I don't agree with the ScummVM team's GUI design decisions (they refuse to make the app more Mac-like to keep it fully portable and consistant across all platforms), I'm amazed at hard work they've put into making all the LucasArts, HE, and many other adventure games from the late 80s and early 90s work on any platform. Sarien was merged a while ago to add all the Sierra AGI games...and recently (in 0.14 subversion builds), FreeSCI's SCI engine was merged to add many of the Sierra SCI games. Booya!

Incredible program. I love the old LucasArts games, they're some of my favorites. I've completed several games with this, including The Dig, Day of the Tentacle, and Curse of Monkey Island. All of the games performed flawlessly. Thank you for this program!

scumm vm refuses to recognize the game files as such--it wont let me add games to the list (game files are grayed out when browsing), which renders the app useless. am i missing something? anyone else have this problem?

Wow! I had only just bought Monkey Island 3, and played it through on my PC before I found I could've played it on my Mac! This is incredible - thank you so much. I feel the incentive to play all the way through all the Lucasarts games all over again :-) It's a bit of a shame the game loading interface isn't all nice and cocoa-ed (seems to be a direct port using SDL?) but otherwise, fantastic work. Again - thank you!

This is an amazing piece of programming, and a great way to play these games. Trying to set up an old Win95 machine, fiddling with sound and graphics for days can't compare to downloading ScummVM and it's 30 second game config. Playing these games is better now on OS X than when the games were first released!

It's a fantastic way to play the greatest games ever made. The environment is so close to perfect it's more fun than when the games were first made!
