The Game Music Format (GMF) (the name is a guess) was created by Adventure Soft for their Adventure Game Operating System (AGOS) engine.


Currently, there are no stand alone players, but the SCUMM VM, which supports the AGOS engine, has a GMF player built-in.


Released Title Sample
1990-??-?? Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (DOS)
1991-??-?? Elvira II: The Jaws of Cerberus (DOS)
1992-??-?? WaxWorks (DOS)
1993-??-?? Simon the Sorcerer (DOS)


There appear to be two versions of GMF, and earlier version used in the Elvira games, and then a later version used in Simon and the Sorcerer. While the files have similar structures, the Simon the Sorcerer version has a header that begins with "GMF" which is lacking in the Elvira games.
