Ready for a swashbuckling adventure?


There is something special about the adventure games of the past, don't you think?
ScummVM is a cool little tool that allows all you old-school LucasArts freaks to take a trip way back in time (on your newer computers, I might add) (but of course, you already knew this).

When I tried it out, the first thing I did was to play right through Loom. And it felt SO good. I can still hear the tunes in my head.

For those of you who got so happy you almost peed your pants and don't know where to start, I'd recommend taking a look at the compatibility list.

Oh, and this is a goldmine if you're into abandonware.

mmm...oh ja, visst är de härliga de där gamla hederliga spelen. Där snackar vi kvalité! Underbara äventyr! Loom är även en av mina största favoriter! :o)

Vart tog de vägen egentligen, äventyren?
Har hört att Grim Fandango ska vara värt sin vikt i guld, men annars?

Nåt som borde få en revival är ju annars Gabriel Knight 3, som behandlar precis samma mysterium som i DaVinci-koden. Det var ett höjdarspel faktiskt.
