WAIT, HOW DO I PLAY THE ORIGINAL GAME?
You know how to boot the Director’s Cut but that’s not what you here for. You want the Original Version, just like you used to play in the good old days when Freddos was still 10p!
The original version of Broken Sword 1: Shadow of the Templars is possible to run on contemporary setups with the help of ScummVM.
ScummVM is a software that allows you to boot older classic graphic point-and-click adventure games, text adventure games, and RPGs by replacing the executable files shipped with the games. This of course works for a lot of older games, not just Lure of The Temptress.ScummVM stands for Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion Virtual Machine, and one of their founders is Joost Peters who now works as our Tech-lead at Revolution Software.
If you’ve never used before, don’t worry! It’s very self-explanatory but we’ll still link to some more info:
