The 7th Guest is a haunted house puzzle-adventure which takes place inside an abandoned mansion. Venture into the 22 rooms of the spooky mansion, solve over 20 mind-bending puzzles to unravel a tale of revenge and horror that took place in the 1930s. The owner of the mansion was Henry Stauf, a famous maker of children's toys. Once a homeless drifter and thief, Stauf's toys became popular overnight bringing fame and fortune and changing his rags to riches. Then, influenced by a vision in a dream, Henry invented a wondrous doll, so incredibly life-like that it sold like wildfire. But things took a tragic turn when owners of the doll became infected with a fierce and deadly virus. None of those children recovered. After this turn of events Stauf secluded himself inside his estate, stopped making his toys and never came into contact with the outside world for a long time. Something very strange happened when six people receive an invitation to a party at the mansion. By solving the riddles inside Stauf's "fun house", you'll delve into the past to learn what happened to them, and the mysterious 7th guest, on that fateful night. The game is played in first person perspective with a point-and-click interface featuring horror-themed animated cursors (skeletons, bulging-eye skulls etc.). It is one of the first games to be released on the then "new" CD-Rom media. The graphics are fully rendered in SVGA, and real actors and actresses bring the story to life during numerous full-motion video cut scenes. The visuals are accompanied by an original, orchestrated musical score. Two distinct endings are possible depending upon how you play. Some later, limited releases of the game came with a separate video that included a "behind the scenes" look at the making of the game and interviews with the developers.
