It's on Direct2Drive, too.

I was thinking about these again recently. I've been wondering: even if a lot of the game logic is hard-coded into the executable, there is libx86 that could, in theory, be used to run bits of machine code, right? Or would something approaching emulation be, by its very nature, beyond the scope of S...

Re: Manic Mansion Deluxe FREEWARE now

Now that LucasArts released Manic Mansion Deluxe as freeware, will ScummVM host a ScummVM-friendly download just as they did for Beneath A Steel Sky & Flight Of The Amazon Books? To be precise: -Maniac Mansion Deluxe has always been freeware. -Lucasarts did not make Maniac Mansion Deluxe. -Maniac M...

But there are already projects that offer HyperCard compatibility, no? Trying to reimplement HyperTalk in all its glory seems rather beyond the scope of ScummVM, certainly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HyperCard By the way, just a few months ago there was an update to the Executor source code (which...

- Mac version from 1988 This can be tough to pull off. You will need a classic Mac (68000 processor) emulator. The Wiki page of Mac OS mentions emulators (vMac, Basilisk II, and Executor) but even they have fallen into obscurity now. None of their websites seem to be updated much in a long while. T...

I thought the CD version of Loom wasn't an official Lucasarts product. Of course it was. O_o http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0273744/trivia: owever, the rights to this version existed with Mindscape, not Lucas (supposedly, LucasArts did not have the means to produce a CD-ROM title at the time), and wer...
