    So excited - Ultima IV is in this release! And ScummVM runs great on the Pinebook Pro :)

    This is a really incredibly capable piece of software.

      Operation Stealth was fun to play on the Amiga, and also support in this release.

      Ultima 4 I played on the Amiga too :)

      I see they’ve branched out quite a bit into formats besides SCUMM. It appears that they’re integrating existing but no longer actively developed engines for e.g. the Ultima games: https://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15149.

      I’m curious how good of an interactive fiction interpreter this makes – I was struggling finding a friendly one for macOS not so long ago. I imagine they’re more interested in supporting old commercial IF than modern formats, though.

        I understand they’re leveraging Glk, so it should be pretty good.

        … why is this tagged historical?

          It’s a tool that was made for the purpose of playing historical games on modern hardware.

          Feel free to suggest removal if you believe it doesn’t fit.
