And how do you think we could do it? Do you have the source code?

Sorry I thought it wasn't necessary to have the actual source code.
I mean how it was been added in ScummVM the support for the original PC version of that same game ?

I've taken a quick look at the Amiga demo, and it doesn't seem to bear any resemblance to the Windows version outside of a few superficial similarities, meaning that supporting it in ScummVM would require writing an entirely new engine.

My understanding is that it is indeed a different engine from the versions we already support.

Thus it falls under FAQ 2.2, and in particular "unless you work for a company interested in providing us with source code for one of your classic titles, or want to do the work yourself, please do not ask us to add support for a new game".

Closing as wontfix. It may happen if a developer interested in reverse engineering this versions turns up. But I would not hold my breath.
