School project - make a game using SCUMM 

I teach high schoolers locally and want to do a class project where each student builds a game using SCUMM - a whole year project. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place here, but I can't find even rough examples to at least get started educating these students with. Can anyone point me to the right place to find either code samples or a primer on getting started? Thanks in advance
Christopher

Maybe look at this page on our wiki: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/HOWTO-Fangames (and in particular at the links toward the bottom of the page).

If you're more interested in your students creating SCUMM-style games and aren't too committed to specifically using SCUMM, I would recommend using Adventure Game Studio (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/)

It has its own documented scripting language and integrated development environment for handling images, animations, sounds, etc. It's free, and a lot of people have been able to create some very impressive adventure games with it (some of which are sold commercially).

Thanks, great advice! I'm definitely going to evaluate this during the teaching inservice the first week of June. Good stuff
