Games that use it The 7th Guest
Date added to ScummVM 2008-11-14
First release containing it 0.13.0

The Groovie engine was used to create several games between 1993 and 1998. It was originally developed to use the full potential of the then emerging CD-ROM, and it can be considered a video player with interactive parts. There are two main versions of the engine: the first version (just used in The 7th Guest) plays VDX videos using 256 colors, while the second version (used from The 11th Hour on) requires 16bpp to play ROQ videos (a format which was later also used in id Software's Quake 3).


(The checksums page keeps track of which different exe versions are available, though we haven't found any differences in data files (yet))


For more detail, see Groovie/TODO.

Some noticeable progress with The 11th Hour has been done here:
