ResidualVM 0.2.0 - "Deliverance" released

We are proud to announce the release of a new version of ResidualVM, bringing Myst III: Exile support, more than thirteen years after its original release.

Initial work towards adding Myst III support began back in 2009 as a side project. A work in progress version of the engine was included in ResidualVM two years later. The game became completable in 2012, but only now do we feel confident enough to release a stable version providing a feature complete experience.

Additionally, some bugs have been fixed in Grim Fandango, and game data verification has been added on first launch. So that you'll know if your game data was copied correctly from your CDs.

Whether you are using Windows, Linux or OS X, you can check out our downloads page, get yourself a copy of ResidualVM 0.2.0, and decide later if you'd rather visit the land of the dead or the land of a revengeful trapped man. The changes in version 0.2.0 are detailed in our NEWS file. Instructions to setup the games can be found on our wiki.

As usual, even though we have tested the games thoroughly you might encounter game-breaking bugs. So, please save often and report bugs to our bug tracker.

Our thanks go to Presto Studios, for releasing such a great game, and to the people involved with testing ResidualVM over the years, allowing us to provide high quality releases.

2015 already looks like a promising year for ResidualVM, thanks to the ongoing effort for adding Escape from Monkey Island support.

We are planning to release ResidualVM 0.2.0 with support for Myst III as our second supported game. The Grim engine has had quite a few changes since 0.1.1, so to avoid any big showstoppers for Grim Fandango, we need your help.

We need people to play through Grim Fandango and Myst III, preferably testing all the optional parts that aren't required for completion too. If you are interested, download our 0.2.0 pre-release builds (not the unstable builds), and start playing.

Any bugs should be reported to our issue-tracker on GitHub, and when you complete, you should post in our forums.

(This was originally posted on the website on December 23. Sorry about the delay for posting to Google+)

 Manny's got company

Adding support for Myst III: Exile to ResidualVM is nearly done. Now, we only need your help to find the last rough edges by playing the game thoroughly and reporting any issues you encounter.

If you are interested, locate your copy of the game, and download a daily build (not the 0.1.1 release build). Instructions to setup the game can be found in our README. Bugs should be reported to our issue tracker on GitHub. Once you have finished, please report your testing results in our forums.

Welcome to Google Summer of Code 2014

We are happy to announce that we are participating in this year's Google Summer of Code under the umbrella of our sister project ScummVM.

You can also propose projects of your own; we'll be happy to help you shape your idea into a concrete project. If you want to participate or have questions about GSoC, come talk to us on IRC irc.freenode.net; #residualvm) or ask on the forums.

ResidualVM 0.1.1 - Lumbago Lemonade released

Is there an engine that can resist the love in these hands?

Some time has passed since doomsday, and we're still around to see the aftermath, the time since then has not been wasted however. Today we release ResidualVM 0.1.1 which is a service-release bringing you roughly 40 gameplay-fixes, varying from very minor fixes to quite visible bugs, 14 of these fixes were also in the original game as it was released back in 1998.

For a list of what has been fixed, see the NEWS-file.

So, head on over to our downloads-page and grab a fresh copy of ResidualVM 0.1.1 to enjoy the best possible Grim Fandango experience we can offer to date.

The edge is here: ResidualVM 0.1.0 - "The Edge of the World" released

The day is finally upon us, after 9 years, 4 months and 6 days, we are proud to announce the first stable release of ResidualVM, and what day would be better for this occasion, than the end of the world as we know it. (or so the Mayan Mechanical Gremlins told us).

This initial stable release of ResidualVM now opens the world of Grim Fandango to a modern audience, whether you are using Windows, Linux or OS X, you'll now be able to take your 4 year journey of the soul, and find out if that compass in the handle actually WILL come in handy.

We would like to note that, while we have tested ResidualVM quite thoroughly, there MIGHT be cases where you end up in a situation where the game is incompletable, some of these were actually also existent in the original game (while the game itself is designed to be dead-end-free, the bugs in it weren't, nor were our own). So, please follow the old adventure-game mantra of "save early, save often".

Over the past few years a lot has happened, even though the code base didn't reach a mature state until the past year. Lots of bugs have been fixed, even quite a few bugs left in the original game have been resolved. The team would like to thank all those that have been involved with getting ResidualVM to this point for their efforts.

Finally, we would like to thank:

The LUA developers, for creating a nice compact script interpreter.
Tim Schafer, for obvious reasons, and everybody else who helped make Grim Fandango a brilliant game; and the EMI team for giving it their best try.
Bret Mogilefsky, for managing to create a SPUTM-style 3D LUA engine, and avoiding the horrible hack it could have been.
So, jump on over to our downloads-page, and grab a copy of ResidualVM 0.1.0 (but don't forget to download the 1.1-patch for Grim Fandango while you're there).
