Company

Revolution

Back in the day – How we looked in the 90s – trendsetters unite!

Revolution Software was founded in 1990 by Charles Cecil, Tony Warriner, David Sykes and Noirin Carmody. The company’s speciality would be for writing adventure games, including Beneath a Steel Sky, and the Broken Sword series which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide and have earned £100 million.

The company was started with a view to creating Lure of the Temptress – their first game and which incorporated the Virtual Theatre Engine. This virtual engine was subsequently used to develop the first two games in the Broken Sword series. The company also developed the games In Cold Blood and Gold and Glory: The Road to El Dorado; a game based on DreamWorks’ 2000 animated film.

Today, the company is still made up of those original founders in addition to the talents of great artists, animators and programmers who provide a solid foundation for the company. With the recent release of Episode 2, the team are keen to capitalise on it’s success and develop even more exciting titles with current franchises.
