All the inane chatter goes in here. If you're curious about whether we will support a game, post HERE not in General Discussion :)

Obsidian by SegaSoft and Rocket Science Games

I haven't seen anything mentioned about this game on the forums, by doing a quick search.

From the Wikipedia page, it appears that the game engine was just a specific video player named mTropolis. Doesn't appear that many titles were developed for it either.

As someone who doesn't know anything about the way engines and programs work, is this a difficult one that they developed the game for?

I assume you are referring to:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsidian_(video_game)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MTropolis

Not sure what question you are asking... The reason why they have few games is listed on those pages fairly clearly i.e. the tool went EOL, partly due to various limitations which newer / custom systems transcended.

Yeah, referring to that game and engine in the links.

I forgot to ask the main question, whether that game and its engine is on the radar at all for ScummVM?

I also see that this whole question should have been put in a previous post on this forum, sorry about that.
