From ScummVM :: Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a (hopefully) complete list of all people that have worked on ScummVM or contributed code. The idea is that we want to see where everybody comes from and maybe a small biography. This could be anything from "Loves coding on ScummVM while working on Windows Vista source at Microsoft" to the next bestseller at your local bookstore: you decide.
