About ScummVM

Editors Review
Playing old adventure games can be a chore to set up on modern PCs: Usually it involves a nasty DOS setup, running a virtual machine, or even working with an old installation of an OS natively. With ScummVM, those issues are a thing of the past - the software makes everything work stably, with a variety of upgrades like MP3 audio and non-CD versions of games that make them easier to play than ever before.
ScummVM allows you to play classic adventure games on modern computers.

ScummVM, which stands for “Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion Virtual Machine," lets you play classic adventure games by LucasArts, Revolution Software and Adventure Soft even on modern PCs with newer operating systems.

All you need is the ScummVM tool and the original data files from those classic games. ScummVM has support from many of the developers of the games that it works with, and some games can even be downloaded for free from the ScummVM website.

ScummVM features compatibility for a huge array of adventure games, such as Monkey Island, King's Quest, Full Throttle, and others. It can also play converted MP3 files instead of CD audio to reduce file size, and make use of global load/save capability.
