ScummVM 2.0 adds Starship Titanic and Sierra games

For those of you unacquainted with ScummVM, let me introduce you. Scumm was the engine developed by Ron Gilbert (and others) for the development of pretty much all of the LucasArts point-and-click adventure games. It stands for Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion. Get it? Got it? Good.

ScummVM (Virtual Machine) is a long running, heavily supported emulator which makes these classic games playable on pretty much every platform under the sun, including Vita, PS3 and Dreamcast. PC and Mac too, of course.

If that didn't already have your attention, the recent huge release of 2.0 has added all of the Sierra On-Line classics to the portfolio of supported games. That means the old school games in the Quest series are now playable and even the later CD-ROM games such as Phantasmagoria are brought up to date and playable on modern machines.

That's not all - some other oddities have sneaked into the update, such as worst-game-of-all-time contender Plumbers Don't Wear Ties and Douglas Adams' Starship Titanic. For those unfamiliar with the latter game, it was entirely written and designed by the legendary creator of The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy and is well worth a look.
