ScummVM est une implémentation du moteur SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) utilisé dans plusieurs jeux LucasArts comme Monkey Island ou Day of the Tentacle. Pour rappel, les jeux d’aventure LucasArts utilisaient SCUMM (jusqu’à Grim Fandango, même si Grim en utilise une version très modifiée), et les jeux Revolution Software (Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 & 2) utilisaient un tout autre système, tout comme Flight of the Amazon Queen.
Mais si ScummVM porte ce nom, c’est parce que le support des jeux de Revolution (et de Flight of the Amazon Queen) est plus récent et n’a été possible que grâce au concours des développeurs des jeux en question. ScummVM n’a longtemps supporté que les jeux à base de SCUMM d’ou son nom. En résumé il s’agit donc d’une sorte d’émulateur du moteur d’origine de chez LucasArts et plus encore.
