Debian (traduction du Bottin) :

Jeu d'aventure classique en 2D de type "point and click" et fantaisie

Lure of the Temptress a été le tout premier jeu d'aventure du studio Revolution et le travail a commencé en 1989, avant même que Revolution ne devienne une véritable société de développement de jeux.

Vous êtes Diermot, un héros réticent qui préférerait une vie tranquille, et vous êtes, à toutes fins utiles, un homme bon. Après des décennies de troubles, le roi a uni les factions en guerre dans son royaume et toutes ses terres sont en paix, à l'exception d'une région éloignée autour d'une ville appelée Turnvale. Une révolte a récemment eu lieu à Turnvale, une révolte orchestrée par une apprentie sorcière appelée Selena, la tentatrice titulaire. Le roi réunit ses meilleurs cavaliers et se rend (avec vous en tête) à Turnvale pour assister à l'invasion de la ville par des monstres mercenaires infernaux appelés Skorl.

Les hommes du roi sont vaincus, le roi est tué et vous tombez de votre cheval et vous vous cognez la tête lourdement sur le sol. Vous êtes inconscient depuis un moment quand vous réalisez que vous êtes dans une cellule miteuse gardée par un Skorl pas très amical. Ce serait peut-être une bonne idée d'essayer de s'échapper...

Notez que ce paquet ne contient que des données de jeu. Le moteur de jeu est fourni par ScummVM.

Lure of the Temptress est un jeu vidéo d'aventure qui se déroule dans un univers médiéval fantastique. Créé par le studio Revolution Software et publié en 1992 par Virgin Interactive, il utilise le moteur Virtual Theatre.

Synopsis
Le joueur incarne un jeune paysan appelé Diermot qui va accompagner, malgré lui, son roi au village de Turnvale, où une rébellion vient d'éclater. Mais au lieu d'affronter des paysans en colère, le groupe se trouve confronté à des Skorl mangeurs d'hommes, dirigés par la belle Séléna. Le roi est tué et Diermot perd connaissance ; il se réveille dans la cellule d'un souterrain et il va falloir d'abord s'évader avant de penser à délivrer le monde de la tyrannie de l'enchanteresse.

Système de jeu
La souris permet de déplacer le personnage, d'interagir avec les objets, ou de dialoguer avec les gens rencontrés : un clic gauche permet d'examiner les choses ou de se déplacer ; un clic droit permet d'interagir avec l'environnement ou les personnages rencontrés. Lors du clic droit, un système de menus déroulants permet de choisir l'action à effectuer et l'objet à utiliser ; au début par exemple, un clic droit sur une torche fixée au mur fait apparaître une liste avec deux choix « Tirer » et « Prendre ».
Placer le pointeur de la souris en haut de l'écran permet d'afficher un menu général avec trois options : « Info », « Fichier », « Aide ».
Les conversations s'effectuent en choisissant des répliques prédéfinies.

Description [en]

Trouble is afoot in the once peaceful land of Turnvale. Skori warriors (vicious mercenaries under the control of the mysterious Temptress) have arrived. But who is the Temptress, and more importantly, where is she?

From the creators of the Broken Sword series, Revolution Software, comes the first in a series of 'Virtual Theater' adventure game. Non-playable characters will walk around and perform different actions regardless of your interaction with them. There is a variety of options and commands, including the possibility of interaction with a supporting character, whom you can give orders in order to solve some of the game's puzzles.

Lure of the Temptress has an intuitive point and click system. Everything you need to do (movie, talk, search and fight) is controlled via the mouse and its two buttons. It's all you need to explore a large and complex game world with over 60 screens to explore... more than 25 intriguing characters to interact with... and of course, Selena - the Temptress.

Classic 2D point and click fantasy adventure game

Lure of the Temptress was Revolution's very first adventure game and work began on it in 1989, even before Revolution's inception as an actual games development company.

You are Diermot, an unwilling hero who'd prefer a quiet life, and are, to all intents and purposes, a good man. After decades of unrest the King has united the warring factions in his kingdom and all his lands are at peace, except a remote region around a town called Turnvale. A revolt has recently taken place in Turnvale, a revolt orchestrated by an apprentice sorceress called Selena, the titular temptress. The king calls together his finest horsemen and heads off (with you in tow) to Turnvale just to witness how hellish mercenary monsters called Skorl are invading the town.

The king's men are defeated, the king is killed and you fall of your horse and bang your head heavily on the ground. You have been unconscious for a while when you realize that you are in a dingy cell guarded by a not so friendly Skorl. Maybe it would be an idea to try and escape...

Note that this package only contains game-data. The game engine is provided by ScummVM.

Lure of the Temptress is Revolution Software's debut point-and-click adventure game published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment. It was released in June 1992 for Atari ST, MS-DOS and Amiga. The player assumes the role of a young peasant named Diermot who has to overthrow an evil sorceress. Lure of the Temptress is the first game built with the Virtual Theatre engine, which Revolution used in the subsequent games Beneath a Steel Sky and the first two games in the Broken Sword series. It was received favourably by critics, a commercial success and re-released as freeware on April 1, 2003.

Gameplay

Lure of the Temptress is a 2D adventure game played from a third-person perspective. Via a point-and-click interface and a system of drop-down lists, the player guides protagonist Diermot through the game's world and interacts with the environment by selecting from multiple commands.

The player controls Diermot's movements and actions with a mouse or a gamepad. Diermot can pick up various objects; these can then be used with either other collectible objects, parts of the scenery, or with other people in order to solve puzzles and progress in the game. He can also engage in dialogue with other characters through conversation trees to gain hints of what needs to be done to solve the puzzles or progress the plot. A few simple action-oriented battle scenes are also included.

Plot

A young peasant named Diermot is employed as a beater for the king's hunting party. One night the king receives a note from a messenger, requesting his services to help quell a rebellion in the remote village of Turnvale. As the king's party departs, Diermot’s pony follows them, unwittingly carrying him to the battle. When the party arrives at Turnvale they are not confronted by a peasant revolt. Instead they find a band of man-eating Skorl, led by an enchantress named Selena, the titular temptress. The king's men are defeated and the king is killed. In the process, Diermot is thrown from his saddle and is knocked unconscious. The Skorl take Diermot prisoner and imprison him in the local dungeon.

With help from a peasant named Ratpouch, Diermot manages to escape from the dungeon and visits Luthern, the blacksmith. Luthern reveals that a girl named Goewin who runs a herb shop has recently disappeared. Diermot discovers that she had been arrested by the Skorl. With help from Ratpouch, Diermot breaks into the house of Taidgh, the magician, where he creates a potion which disguises him as Selena. He enters the mansion where Goewin is being held and orders the Skorl to free her. Not long after, a man named Mallin gives Diermot a book wrapped in cloth to take to a man named Morkus. In the process of delivering the book, Diermot sees a notice stating that whoever returns the book to its rightful owner will be rewarded. Diermot delivers the book to a man named Toby, who rewards him with a statuette. Toby reveals that the dragon can help Diermot defeat Selena, but that he will need an infusion made of three herbs to wake the dragon up, which Goewin then makes for Diermot.

Diermot enters the dragon's cave and wakes him up. The dragon agrees to help Diermot, revealing that Turnvale was the domain of a demon long before humans came to the area. This demon should have died along with his breed long ago, but did not perish because it was able to feed on man's greed and ambition in order to survive. The demon was driven out by the great Gethryn, but the young sorceress Selena's meddling with evil has reawakened the demon, and it controls her mortal form. The dragon possesses the Eye of Gethryn, an enchanted stone left by Gethryn at the time of his death. The stone contains the power to defeat the demon, and the dragon then gives the stone to Diermot. A Skorl named Wayne, who turns against Selena, sneaks Diermot into Selena's castle in a barrel. Diermot defeats Selena with the Eye of Gethryn, freeing Turnvale from her tyranny.
