Road (1st GPL Scumm Homebrew??) -- Need Info

Post by another world » Sun Mar 04, 2012 12:13 am

I came across what appears to be a Scumm engine homebrew, titled "Road". It runs as DOTT. I am trying to find out more about it, as in who released it, what their homepage is, what year it was released, etc.

The game stars a horned red devil looking character. He can walk around a town and interact with some stuff. There is a santa character that can be questioned, etc.

Is anyone familiar with the game? I'm not 100% sure if it is pure homebrew or a hack, and for those reasons I won't share the file unless the Mods say that it is OK.

Cheers!

There's another SCUMM engine homebrew game called OpenQuest (which was a conversion of an open source AGS engine game) that was also created by the ScummC team:

This one's an actual competable short two room game.
