I think it suffices to state their program is GPL to comply with the 
GPL, they don't need to specifically mention ScummVM anywhere AFAIK. 
Thus, if they based it on ScummVM and don't mention the license terms, 
then that's why they violate the GPL. But of course, we will first need 
to check whether it's actually based on ScummVM. Otherwise, it's 
pointless to even think about them violating any license terms.
