It took over 10 years, but now ScummVM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion - Virtual Machine) is back on the Dreambox.

The first appearance of ScummVM for Enigma Boxes was in the ihaD board. Now @emanuel has reintroduced the program for Dreambox OS Boxes.

ScummVM is a software and script collection to emulate many game engines. This way a lot of old games can be executed on modern platforms, such as the Dreambox.
