Kingdom O Magic?

Post by zeefor »

I don't know if this is the right forum for this, but does anyone here know the game Kingdom O Magic? I still have an old CD copy of it and wondered if it might be considered for future inclusion of SCUMMVM.

Hi zeefor,

You're in luck!

Last week I began coding an experimental Kingdom O' Magic engine.
I certainly hope it will bear fruit.

It's good to hear there'll be at least one tester besides me. :D

Very interesting engine, a long term addition for ScummVM? ;)

Do you have a web page already? If so, you might want to add it to http://rewiki.regengedanken.de/wiki/Lin ... mentations...

I have this game, and it's a favourite of mine. I'm a Mac user now, so I can't play it without lots of fiddling with Windows in Bootcamp. Having ScummVM support Kingdom O' Magic would be just awesome. Please keep us updated.

Meanwhile, you can play it using DosBox. it crashes from time to time, but it's tolerable.

Nice! And he is using the ScummVM infrastructure :)

Does this will be included on ScummVM SVN?

It seems he is still working on this, so it be best if he'd add him himself.
