Trilobyte Games recently announced the re-release of its classic horror puzzle adventure The 7th Guest. The game has been built for OS X and runs on Snow Leopard and Lion. First released in 1993 on the PC and Mac, the game follows the travails of an amnesiac protagonist struggling to survive in a spooky mansion.

The 7th Guest is an interactive movie puzzle adventure game. It was one of the first computer video games to be released only on CD-ROM. The 7th Guest is a horror story told from the unfolding perspective of the player, as an amnesiac. The game received a great amount of press attention for making live action video clips a core part of its gameplay, for its unprecedented amount of pre- rendered 3D graphics, and for its adult content. In addition, the game was very successful, with over two million copies sold, and is widely-regarded as a killer app that accelerated the sales of CD-ROM drives. Bill Gates called The 7th Guest "the new standard in interactive entertainment."

The game is played by wandering through a mansion, solving logic puzzles and watching videos that further the story. The main antagonist, Henry Stauf, is an ever-present menace, taunting the player with clues, mocking the player as they fail his puzzles ("We'll all be dead by the time you solve this!"), and expressing displeasure when the player succeeds ("Don't think you'll be so lucky next time!").

A moderately complex plot of manipulation and sin is gradually played out, in flashback, by actors through film clips as you progress between rooms by solving 19 puzzles of shifting nature and increasing difficulty.

  • Engaging, rich-graphics gameplay
  • Stunning, original images look even better on new platforms
  • Ghostly, full-motion video and supernatural animated sequences
  • Intel Mac
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later
The game is available now for $4.99 (USD).
