Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh was the second Phantasmagoria game by Sierra. Curtis Craig, an introverted 26-year old man working at a pharmaceutical company, was released from a mental institution one year ago. Now, he is seeing disturbing images and seemingly receiving messages to tell him to commit murder. After a co-worker Curtis doesn't like was murdered, he initially suspects he may have been the murderer due to a psychotic break. However, when more people at the pharmaceutical company are murdered, Curtis begins to suspect someone else.

Required data files

For more information on how ScummVM uses game data files, see the user documentation.

WARNING: Unlike other games, SCI games have significant variation in the naming of required files.

They also can load supplementary files by resource maps, so it is recommended to keep all files in the game data directory from the CD.

Unless otherwise specified, do NOT remove any file from the directory, even if it does not appear on the following list, since this will likely cause weird bugs.

Copy all files from each disk or CD to the game directory. Some games need additional work:

Games with multiple CDs

  • Directories that exist on multiple discs (e.g. ROBOT and VMD directories) must be merged together, not replaced.
  • Rename the RESOURCE.SFX from each CD to RESSFX.00<cdnumber>, and the RESOURCE.AUD from each CD to RESAUD.00<cdnumber>, to match the corresponding RESSCI.00<cdnumber> file that exists on each CD.
  • It should be safe to replace any other files from later CDs that were copied already from earlier CDs.
