ScummVM, the clever bit of software enabling many classic point-and-click adventure games to run nicely on modern systems has a big new release in need of some testing.

The list of new titles supported with ScummVM 2.1.0 is quite impressive:

  • Blade Runner.
  • Hoyle Bridge.
  • Hoyle Children's Collection.
  • Hoyle Classic Games.
  • Hoyle Solitaire.
  • Hyperspace Delivery Boy!
  • Might and Magic IV - Clouds of Xeen.
  • Might and Magic V - Darkside of Xeen.
  • Might and Magic - World of Xeen.
  • Might and Magic - World of Xeen 2 CD Talkie.
  • Might and Magic - Swords of Xeen.
  • Mission Supernova Part 1.
  • Mission Supernova Part 2.
  • Quest for Glory: Shadows of Darkness.
  • The Prince and the Coward.
  • Versailles 1685.

Want to know what other titles it supports? You can find out on this page.

Better game compatibility is not the only headline feature coming to ScummVM with the 2.1.0 release. It also now supports Cloud saving, so you can link it up with Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive and Box to sync your saves which sounds pretty darn handy!

If you do wish to help test, find the announcement here.

Additionally, for Steam users you might want to take a look at Roberta. It's another unofficial Steam Play tool, that allows you to run nearly any title on Steam through a native Linux version of ScummVM.

SummVM, paired with Steam/GOG, lets me play all the adventure games I've missed by never having DOS or Windows. :-)

Being an open source program it would have been great if they have included nextcloud in the list of cloud saves.

Amazing work anyway, some of these new titles don’t really know them but happy for Blade Runner and re-play it again after so many years.

Blade Runner! Finally! Now if there was a way to get it on Steam for purchase and launching through ScummVM.

I think he's refering to the fact that Blade Runner is not for sale on either Steam or GOG or anywhere else apparently.

The movie license probably gets in the way of resale on stores. Even tho the game's story is it's own unique story.

Odd thing about Blade Runner: I actually have a different science fiction book by a different author, also called Blade Runner. It's about trafficking black market surgical supplies.
