ScummVM

ScummVM is a Virtual machine which allows you to play LucasArts games which use the SCUMM system on platforms other than those where versions were originally released. Portability being a design goal, ports[?] are available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, WinCE[?] and more. It's free under the GPL.

Getting the games ScummVM does not include the games, so users have to own copies of the games. The age of the original releases means that many of them are available in budget ranges, such as the LucasArts Classics range.

Technical details ScummVM is written in C++ and requires SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer). Windows binaries are available for those wary of compilation. Some Linux distributions (such as SuSE) include ScummVM, but compilation is relatively painless, making it easy to have the latest version.
