1997: The SCUMM engine finished off in grand style, thanks to the huge hit and part three of the Monkey Island series, The Curse of Monkey Island. It was coded up with the latest SCUMM Version 8. Many of these hits can now be played on the latest hardware thanks to the free ScummVM engine.



The developer of SCUMM took its license and started up his own company, Humungous Entertainment, and released a few obscure games based on newer versions of SCUMM, namely the Spy Fox series of children's games.

SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) is a scripting language developed at LucasArts (known at the time as Lucasfilm Games) to ease development of the graphical adventure game Maniac Mansion.

It is somewhere between a game engine and a programming language, allowing designers to create locations, items and dialogue sequences without writing code in the actual language the game source code would end up in. This also meant that the game's script and data files could be re-used across various platforms.

The original version was coded by Aric Wilmunder and Ron Gilbert in 1987, with later versions enhanced by Aric Wilmunder (a.k.a. the SCUMM Lord) and various others.

SCUMM was subsequently reused in many later LucasArts adventure games being both updated and rewritten several times. There are at least 10 known versions of the SCUMM engine, numbered as "version 0" (for the original Commodore 64 version of Maniac Mansion), "version 1", "version 1.5" (for the NES version of Maniac Mansion), and "version 2" up through "version 8". LucasArts finally abandoned the SCUMM engine in 1998 when they switched to GrimE, using the free software scripting language Lua, for the games Grim Fandango and Escape from Monkey Island.
