Residual is a ScummVM sub-project to play LucasArts' LUA-based 3D adventures, such as Grim Fandango. Residual is an OpenGL program, and requires a 3D card with working OpenGL support for the best experience.
A software renderer is also available, but is less tested.
The main ScummVM program can run LucasArts 2D SCUMM adventures (among others). Residual is named such as it aims to do the same for the residual (remaining) games. It is also a word pun, as the engine used in these LUA-based adventure is called GrimE (as opposed to SCUMM). Grime is a type of residue.
What is the state of Residual?
Basic gameplay works, including cutscenes, up until Some of the game is playable, but many features are either missing or unstable. Currently some menus don't work, and save/load support is missing.
