With the next release of ScummVM upcoming, the team have put out a call to arms for helping testing a bunch of new titles that will be supported with ScummVM 2.2.0.
Another wonderful bit of FOSS software, which enables tons of classic games to be perfectly playable on all sorts of modern operating systems. From Blade Runner to The Secret of Monkey Island there's a lot it supports.
They mentioned these titles in particular need more attention and testing for the upcoming release:
- Blazing Dragons
- Eye of the Beholder - Sega CD version
- Griffon Legend
- Interactive Fiction games
- Operation Stealth
- Police Quest: SWAT
- Prince and the Coward, English translation
- Ultima IV - Quest of the Avatar
- Ultima VI - The False Prophet
- Ultima VIII - Pagan
It's not just new games that ScummVM 2.2.0 brings in. Looking over the unfinished changelog there's also autosave support for all engines supported, errors are now more likely to open the debugger rather than just crash ScummVM, for Linux there's the option to use the system file browser instead of the ScummVM file browser, a lot of the game engines used got major feature upgrades and fixes too.
Since some games need the data files of games still sold, you can find a few classics on GOG.com.
