Is SCUMMBag a Real Word, Sam? 04 May, 2002, 17:58 / 13 comments

There's a new site at Mixnmojo and that site is SCUMMBag. What is SCUMMBag? It's the pet project of Jimmi Th?gersen (Serge), author of the venerable SCUMM Revisited.

That of course means two things: 1) When a SCUMMBag program does come out it will let you do crazy things you always wanted to do, and 2) there is never a guarantee that a full SCUMMBag program will ever come out at all (so be nice when you harass Serge time and again to finish).

The SCUMMBag site only has a teaser image at the moment, but that should be rectified soon.

    "Ben Throttle"?

    I thought it was:

    Ben Whatshisname (no joke)

    ;)

    I thought his last name was LeaderofthePollcats. :)

    His first name's actually Ruben.

    How do you get Ben out of that?

    I hope that's a joke of some kind ;) Anyway, yes, his name is Ruben (he was named after a sandwich - so are his brothers - and as Jake pointed out to me a few days ago, so is Hoagie, who's also in a Tim Schafer game and looks like Ben in a way - there's your dose of speculation for the followup to your latest outbursts, Captain Mystery ;) )

    And yes, his last name has never been mentioned in the game. Some call him Throttle, some call him Whatsisname, I decided on Throttle for various reasons.

    Ya. When Brink finds that out he'll leave SCUMMbag for dead and take all the life crystals they got. :)
