Revolution Software Ltd. is a British adventure game company, based in York in north east England. The company was originally founded in Hull in 1990 by Charles Cecil, Tony Warriner, David Sykes and Noirin Carmody, with a view to create the company's first game, Lure of the Temptress.
Released in 1992 for the Amiga, Atari ST, and PC, Lure of the Temptress was a reasonable success and set the company up for their future successes. Still fondly remembered today, Revolution made the game Freeware on 1 April 2003.
Their next game really created the company's reputation for high quality adventure games. Released in 1994, Beneath a Steel Sky became a major hit on the Amiga and PC. The game focused on protagonist Robert Foster's abduction and subsequent search for answers in a dystopian city of the future.
