Once called the “new entertainment standard” by Bill Gates, the original 7th Guest was an interactive movie puzzle adventure game released in 1994, and was one of the first games to be a CD-ROM exclusive. While the sequel, 1995’s the 11th hour, was not as commercially successful, creator Rob Landeros has taken to Kickstarter to create a threequel.
Taking place in the haunted Stauf mansion, you must complete 20 puzzles (more with stretch goals) in order to solve the final puzzle…the house itself. Featuring a blend of motion video with real actors and CGI environmental pieces, the game seeks a minimum of 435,000 $USD in funding.
The game will be released on iOS, Android, PC, Mac, Steam, and possibly Linux. Keep an eye on this one, as I’m not quite sure the franchise has the draw to get almost half a million dollars.
