The best ScummVM games
ScummVM plays classic adventure games (and so much more) on nearly every platform. Here are my favorite ScummVM compatible games.
ScummVM is one of my absolute favorite pieces of software. What started as a virtual machine for running SCUMM games (old Lucas Arts adventure titles), ScummVM has added numerous other game engines over the years — making it possible to run a huge number of amazing games.
Plus… ScummVM runs on oh-so-many platforms. Windows, Mac, & Linux. Sure. That’s a given. But also PSP, Android, 3DS, Haiku, RISCOS, and Amiga among others.
It’s crazy. If you have a computer (or a game console), decent odds you can run ScummVM on it.
What follows are some of my favorite games that run (and run well) on ScummVM. This is not a comprehensive list. Not even close. Hundreds of games run on ScummVM, so I’ll be trying to only include a few from each genre.
There’s a lot more. Hundreds of games. But these are ones you simply can’t go wrong with.
And, hopefully that gives you some idea of what is possible with ScummVM. So much more than just adventure games. Truly worth exploring what is possible.
I would also be remis if I did not mention that many of these games can be legally purchased, without DRM, over at GOG.com… and can than (often fairly easily) be played via ScummVM.
