Thanks to the efforts of programmer Jukka Jylänki, SCUMMVM is now also playable in your HTML5 enabled browser.

To stay on the right side of the law, the version up on the site only enables you to play the demo versions of games such as Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and The Secret of Monkey Island, to name a few.


Fan demake of The Curse of Monkey Island is back on board

A demake project for The Curse of Monkey Island is currently underway, giving the 1997 classic LucasArts adventure game a pixelated makeover.

The fan-made remake seeks to recreate the third instalment in the Monkey Island series in the style of the first two games The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge. This entails an overhaul of The Curse of Monkey Island’s art, animation and interface.

The demake has been underway since May 2010, was cancelled in late 2011 and has now been resurrected by a Spanish programmer. The project is still a work in progress and no date for release has been given, but an English version has been confirmed.
