Lure of the Temptress

icon Lure of the Temptress was the first game released by Revolution Software. It is set in the Middle Ages, and features a peasant named Diermont and his companion, a peasant named Ratpouch.


Diermont and Ratpouch escape from the castle dungeon where they both found themselves imprisoned. Once free, the duo travels the village and learns of a plot concocted by an evil sorcerer temptress. The game uses Revolution's Virtual Theatre engine, which allows villagers to go about their daily tasks while Diermont is on his quest.

Lure of the Temptress was first released in 1992, and became freeware by Revolution in 2003. Support for the game was added to ScummVM in 2007, this allowed it to be played on other hardware, such as the Dreamcast.
