Okay, that's definitely great news. However, I can't figure out how to make the game run in ScummVM. From what I understand, I'd need the scummvm-engine-prince.apk file, but I don't know where this file is. Judging by the APK filename, I'm pretty sure that's the Android version of ScummVM. All you ...

There's been hardly that much progress in ScummVM for already supported engines (like SCI, for example) in ages so I don't think supporting RPG is going to change that. If anything, renewed interest in the program for such a big change might re-spark some interest in the older engines. Who knows? M...

Aric Wilmunder releases documents from his days at LucasArts

Aric Wilmunder is releasing design documents from his days at LucasArts, and is even looking into releasing SCUMM sourcecode for preservation on Github! :) Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, The Dig, Indy Iron Phoenix, the list goes on. I worked on all of these and had a suspicion t...

I finally got myself familiarized with ScummGen by polishing up Indiana Jones and the Call of Thunder. The original team (Dominik Haslinger, Jens Doblies and Sebastien Ronsse) did the majority of the work. It was originally intended to be a much longer game, but it was cancelled. I finished up the i...

I've also read that Apple rejected GPLed programs as a matter of policy. That can't be the case. There's a lot of games on the app store that use ScummVM and have never had problems with Apple for being on iTunes (Simon the Sorcerer, Simon the Sorcerer 2, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Inherit the Ear...

Re: New HE games on iOS

Just the other day, 7 more Humongous Entertainment games dropped on the iOS App Store. Unlike the other releases, which were reworked in house for mobile, these seem to be running on a modified version of ScummVM. I know it's becoming more and more common lately, but it's still great to see ScummVM...

The rights to Findus now belong to Findus Group (formerly known as Foodvest), so it would probably be best to contact them about it. You can find their contact information here.

I backed it on Kickstarter and finished it the day that chapter 5 came out. It's my favorite game of 2015 so far. Plus I just got the Kickstarter box in the mail, and it's the best Kickstarter box that I've received so far. The box itself is amazing (it looks like a giant book), and the content is a...

Re: Thoughts on Grim Fandango Remastered?

Like most of you I am currently enjoying Grim Fandango Remastered and I think it did alot of the goals we were trying to accomplish with the Deluxe project. The shadows are nice, the textures look sharp, and the controls are great. I can't however think that it could've been better. I only helped w...

Re: Road To El Dorado reversing video

Thanks for posting this. I always enjoy reading about people reverse engineering games, and I really enjoy how you've taken it a step further by detailing the process in video. Congratulations on how far you've come so far, and do keep us updated. It's been a fascinating glimpse into your process.

Too bad the game looks like it is going to be a Platform-adventure game. I really think it is going to be lacking in puzzles. Platforming mechanics and adventure puzzles can actually be blended quite well together. I thought that The Cave did this well, except for the backtracking. If they were to ...

Re: Double Fine is making Grim Fandango Remastered!

I usually wait until a sale when ordering digital games, but I made an exception here and pre-ordered it as soon as I found out that pre-orders were available. For me personally, the musical score performed live by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is worth the price of admission alone. It sounds ama...
