 +'''​ResidualVM'''​ is a program, originally created by [[ScummVM]] project leader [[James Brown]], that runs classic 3D adventure games on [[Windows]],​ [[macOS]] and [[Linux]]. ​
 +
 +Upon its creation on August 15, 2003, it was titled '''​Residual''',​ and was a subproject of ScummVM. It received its own domain in December 6, 2011, and the name was changed to ResidualVM to reflect the domain. It is now a seperate project from ScummVM, but is still considered a sister project, as they share a common codebase. ​
 +
 +It was originally created to support the two games made with GrimE, as they were the residual adventure games by [[LucasArts]] that weren'​t supported by ScummVM. ​ It was also a word pun, as grime is a residue. ​ On May 26, 2009, it was expanded to support engines from several other games.
 +
 +Two games are officially supported, ''​[[Grim Fandango]]''​ and ''​[[Myst III]]''​. In the unstable development builds, ''​[[Escape from Monkey Island]]''​ and ''​[[The Longest Journey]]''​ are also completable.
