ScummVM is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. My roomates and I have been dusting off the old LucasArts games, and I had almost forgotten how much fun to play they are. Best thing is, it's an ebuild!

Good times!

Check out my earlier post about scummvm: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=5616

It's really fun to play those oldies :)

Did you read about the legal stuff over at /. about scummvm?

Yes, and I think it's sad. The ScummVM team should have spelled out the fact that it's just a virtual machine that the old SCUMM engine runs in, not the engine itself and that you still need a copy of the game to play it. Their response to the LucasArts lawyers was pretty rushed.

Yes, perhaps. However the SCUMMVM website is still up, so they're not shut down and hopefully they will continue to improve their software.

Ooooh. Neat. I didn't know this existed. I guess it's time to dust off the old Monkey Island disks. I wish I hadn't gotten rid of my copy of Maniac Mansion, though.
