ScummVM

A friend of mine told me about ScummVM, a virtual machine to run many of the old school Lucasarts adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, Maniac Mansion on many os.

Of course I had to try. My major problem is that I have a couple of games, but most of them on floppy disc and no computer in sight that has a drive :)) But so far any game I tried to run on my powerbook (Mac OS X), played very well. I was kind of surprised how well I remember the tricks again … and especially in Day of the Tentacle they are somewhat strange.

Though the best is always what the characters say when you’re trying something wrong or don’t do it properly like Bobbin from Loom.
