Lure of the Temptress, was the first game to use Revolution's Virtual Theatre engine. The game follows a young peasant named Diermot who must escape prison, rid the kingdom of Turnvale from the Skorl invaders, and defeat the cruel temptress Selena.
In August 2003, the creators and copyright holders of Lure of the Temptress, Revolution Software, released the DOS versions of the game as freeware. The sourcecode was lost, so unlike Beneath a Steel Sky, the sourcecode had to be reverse engineered in order to be included in ScummVM. ScummVM officially supported Lure of the Temptress on January 15, 2007. The game can be downloaded from our downloads page.

Lure of the Temptress makes extensive use of the extra sound effects introduced with the Roland CM-32L module, so if possible you should use a CM-32L compatible module or ROM set when playing the game rather than older MT-32 modules or ROMs. It does not sound very good with an actual MT-32.
