== Introduction ==
One popular type of task is to improve our support for the games you love, whether this means a new game engine, or helping us to perfect an existing one
Sometimes source code is available -
examples from recent summers include [[Sfinx ]], [[Wintermute]], [[The Prince and the Coward]] , [[Avalanche]] and [[ZVision]].
Amore challenging (but hopefully rewarding) idea is to start (or continue) reverse engineering a game where no source is available
(two such examples are the pair of students who drastically improved ResidualVM's support for Escape from Monkey Island, and work on improving [[Operation Stealth]] ).
If you'd prefer to improve ScummVM more directly, there are even more options available there; in the past, students have improved our OpenGL support, added a testing framework, written a new GUI framework, improved sound format support and added support for high-colour (16bpp and above) graphics. It's difficult for us to imagine ScummVM as it was before some of these projects, you can make a huge difference!
