SCUMM vs. GrimE
« on: July 22, 2005, 02:33:01 PM »
I prefer SCUMM. GrimE just doesn't feel as natural to me.
She's back. She's proud. She will overcome!

I've never used either, but I think I've heard of SCUMM.

Both are LucasArts engines, SCUMM was used for Monkey Island etc, and GrimE was used for Grim Fandango, and as far as I remember SCUMM stands for "Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion" because it was first used and developed for Maniac Mansion.. as for GrimE, I can't remember what that stands for.. shall post if I find out.. ;P


Edit: GrimE stands for "Grim Edit".. :D

I think GrimE was also used for Escape from Monkey Island.
