General

The file kyra.dat is required in order to run the games.
This is included with each ScummVM release.

It can be found seperately in the ScummVM sources in the directory "dists/engine-data" (kyra.dat for latest ScummVM development version or
kyra.dat for the latest ScummVM release).

The Legend of Kyrandia

The Legend of Kyrandia is completable since ScummVM 0.9.0.

Hand of Fate

Hand of Fate is completable since 0.12.0 SVN (21 Mar 2008).

Malcolm's Revenge

Malcolm's Revenge is completable since 0.12.0 SVN (28 Apr 2008).

Lands of Lore

Lands of Lore is completable since 0.14.0 SVN (7 Jun 2009).

Eye of the Beholder

Eye of the Beholder should be completable.

Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon

Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon should be completable.

Status of the Source Release

Negotiations for the release of the source to Kyrandia (and possible freeware release) have been conducted with Electronic Arts LA. The original code and assets from the Westwood-era have been confirmed to still exist on backups.

Action has stalled, mostly due to confusion over the franchise ownership and licensing. As of the last update, EA has reconfirmed their ownership of the rights.
