Peter Gabriel's EVE

Post by zahneissen » Wed Aug 29, 2018 10:37 am

I've always been a huge fan of Peter Gabriel's EVE, a point and click art-adventure game from 1996. Due to some quicktime movies in the game, it can't be played on a modern OS any more. Quicktime support ended after WIndows XP. Is there any chance that this wonderful game gets supported by ScummVM in the future ? :-)

It's always possible at some point in the future, and ScummVM does already have QuickTime decoders. Of course, having original source code to games can make things a lot easier than trying to reverse engineer them from scratch. If you'd really like to see it supported, maybe you could do some amateur detective work and try to track down either the rights holders or some of the original developers, and see if they'd be willing to release the source code.
