Trilobyte Games wants to bring the The 7th Guest series to Steam's Greenlight service where gamers can upvote one of the most iconic and classic horror-puzzle games of all time. The title made waves back in the mid 1990s as a mature-themed game that saw players trying to stop old man Stauf.
This game was such a blast back then, making it one of the true innovators of the live-action genre, rivaling Activision's The Return to Zork, which was the cream of the crop back in the day. The 7th Guest was a multi-choice, story-oriented adventure horror game with tons of puzzles tossed in between. The original Trilobyte crew has come together to promote the game on Steam's Greenlight as they prep for a third game in the series, completing the trilogy that also includes the 1995 release of The 11th Hour.
The game touched on some pretty wicked themes, but if you haven't already played the game there's no sense in me ruining it for you...unless of course I put **spoilers** and say that Staufwascapturingkidsandstealingtheirsoulswhileputtingitindollsandkillinganyonewhotriedinterfering.
Wow, that was a mouthful. Anyway, if the original game manages to find some success on Steam's Greenlight then Trilobyte plans to bring the third game along as well, which they say is currently in the early stages of development. That would be a real pick-me-up for gamers looking for more horror-puzzle games...which is strange that such a thing was even a genre back in the day.
Anyway, if you really want to see this game made available on Steam, which could even see this age-old classic becoming Big Picture Mode compatible, you can give the game a look over on the official Greenlight page.
