ResidualVM: play The Longest Journey on Linux
legluondunet commented on 1 July 2018 at 11:28 am UTC

Hello,
do you know ResidualVM? It's a ScummVM like open source software but for 3D adventure games.
I tried it yesterday, it becomes stable and usable:
compiled from git on Ubuntu 18.04 --> OK
launched --> OK
tested The Longest Journey (Steam version) --> OK

It's a good way for Linux users to play The Longest Journey.

You can also play this adventure games:
Grim Fandango
Escape from Monkey Island
Myst III

As an adventure game fan I've been following it with interest since it was launched. For Grim Fandango, you'd be better off with the native remaster though.

How could I miss this, I've been wanting to play The Longest Journey on Linux for so long, this is more than I could really ask for.

You should let them know.

Be warned though, their TLJ TODO is still quite long and support seems to be far from complete. Maybe you could help with testing and bug reports?
