Pocket ScummVM

Pocket ScummVM Now this is just silly. There’s a version of ScummVM for PocketPC/Windows Mobile, meaning that I can play Sam & Max and Day of the Tentacle while on the move, using files copied from the original CDs that I bought nearly 10 years ago.
It does work remarkably well actually. I don’t have the actual games here with me in Bradford but the demo versions work great.
I suppose this is the beauty of open source software – it can be ported to new and strange platforms and situations. Take Firefox, for example – you can now run it on an Acorn RISC PC, or from a USB flash drive. Or Linux, which can run from a bootable read-only CD or on your XBox.
