Dynamix also made Space Quest 5, though it wasn't advertised as such. Just some random trivia for those who don't know. You can definitely tell from the graphics, Dynamix had some great talents in this department. Rise of the Dragon is one of my personal classics. ScummVM could allow for combining ...

Congrats folks, glad all these years of SCI32 development paid off. Always wanted to play Gabriel Knight 2, seems like now is the time :)

Impressive release. Just when I thought that ScummVM has lost a bit of steam there comes Sherlock Holmes and Rex Nebular support. Kudos for the latter one, I know that it was hard to implement considering it's all hard-coded logic (if I remember that correctly).

That's great news, I stopped asking about the game, didn't wanna go nagging, but never losing hope about it being supported some day.

I don't really think that an IP like Aladdin can be compared to Zak McKracken. Maybe they want to clean up and getting rid of everything non-Star Wars after shutting down LucasArts? Although I have to admit - my expectations are low.

I really hope they will just sell IPs they don't need anymore. The only sad thing about all this is that we probably won't see more Special Editions, I really liked what they did with Monkey Island 1+2. I was hoping for a remade Indiana Jones III or maybe even Zak McKracken (one can dream).

I was in with my $110 pledge five minutes after the Kickstarter but I have to admit - I'm surprised it earned so much money so fast. It's been many years since Dreamfall and the franchise seemed close to being forgotten already. It's not like Funcom did Director's Cut versions like Revolution or por...

I would register on aep-emu.de and place your question there, it's the biggest german emulation community. However, when it comes to Flashback there is a much easier solution. REminiscence is an engine much similar to ScummVM, running the original game data on modern operating systems: http://cyxdow...

That doesn't make it any more legal to offer the download. That sentence basically confirms that they are not allowed to offer the game as freeware. One of their editors obviously still thinks there is something like a legal abandonware term.

libmove for PSL1GHT has been released:

Are there any plans to incorporate Move support in the PS3 port? That would make it the perfect console port imho!

Not actually, but didn't see a commit for some time so it seems to be one of these engines developers suddenly loose interest in. But I might be wrong - hopefully I am :)
