Product Description

Awarded several times “best CD game of the year”, The 7th Guest is an interactive movie puzzle adventure game that dips you into a terrifying adventure that takes place in the haunted mansion of the famous Henry Stauf! This man was an enigmatic drifter who made and sold his own original toys in town. This strange house, his greatest creation, had been abandoned since the night that changed everything : he invited 6 guests there and they never come back. The house is empty and abandoned now and some people say they can hear the terrible sing-song rhymes of children...

During that night, there must have been seven guests, but Henry Stauf set a trap to him. Now, you are in that haunted mansion and you have to explore it, reliving the events of that fatal night to recover the secret of the 7th Guest. To discover what happened, you need to gradually solve sinister enigmas. A lot of challenging puzzles to solve, a very immersive environment, The 7th Guest is definitely a must-have!

4.0 out of 5 stars Give a classic a chance. July 28, 2012
Well, lets point out the obvious the game is over 20 years old. The graphics are dated, the story is better than most SyFy tv movies, and it's point and click adventure. The accolades that it got when it was released is storied, one the best 3D pre-rendered of that PC gaming generation, one the few games to use a soundtrack that wasn't chip tunes, and pushed the CD-ROM drive into the stratosphere with sales that pushed upwards to %300 over expectation. Now to the dirt, the game's story is wonderful Grimm tale is modern form, a drifter strikes a deal with the devil to gain riches as long as he makes the designs that are feed to him. You, along with others, are trapped in a house with these occult toys and games. Your task is to unravel the plans of the diabolical toys maker. The puzzles are hands down some of the hardest that I have ever tangled with, there are some that I have yet to solve. Don't believe me try the infamous microscope puzzle. So, all in all the game is an interactive dinner theater with the devil tossed in for spice and the beginnings of the Hellraiser's puzzle box strewn throughout. By all means pick it up, play it, and enjoy a classic, in the dark, with the shades drawn, the speakers up, and the soft glow of the monitor as Stauf hurls insults at your meager attempts to solve his puzzles.

This was the first game I got on my first computer. It is the standard by which I judge computer games of this type and I have never found anything to even match it. I was highly disappointed when I couldn't run it on successive computers. This download is great. It runs on my computer without any glitches.

5.0 out of 5 stars 20 years old and still terrifying March 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
Back in 1993 this was one of the first video games ever to be only available on CD-ROM. It was revolutionary and broke new ground with incredible 3d animation and embedded video live action video. Bill Gates called The 7th Guest "the new standard in interactive entertainment."

20 years on it is still terrifying. The graphics now seem dated, quaint even, and running on a simulated machine of 1993 via scummVM the mouse feels sluggish compared to modern games but this isn't a modern game, this is a classic, a piece of game history! Enjoy it for the atmospheric voice acting, the horrifying plot, and the sheer excitement of remembering beating it the first time 20 years ago!

I feel the low scores seen in some reviews are more from people expecting a modern game experience, and shouldn't detract from the fact that you can now play this brilliant game once again!

I played this old classic many years ago. To be able to play it again is a pleasure! It may not be for the young, because there is no violence!

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work on Windows XP May 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
Thought that maybe I read that it was compatable with Windows XP but it totally messes up the program, constant freezes needing reboot, not working all the time. Uninstalled the program to prevent further frustration and problems. Used to have on the old Windows platform and worked well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money March 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
I used to have this game a long time ago, so when I found it again I downloaded it. The darn thing doesn't work on my computer, maybe its crappy download, maybe not, it was supposed to be compatible with Windows 7, its not. The game either froze up to the point that I had to power off my computer (using the power button, not the start menu) or while playing the game, it would randomly kick me out of the game, and then I would lose my progress, and then it would freeze up my computer. Don't waste your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars As said August 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
I am running windows 8 and it downloaded installed and ran just fine. I remember this game growing up and thought it would be fun. The graphics are not the greatest but that is because the game itself is old. The puzzles are just as challenging as I remembered them.

3.0 out of 5 stars error message December 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
The some of the puzzles were very difficult, therefore it was a challenge. However, I reached one point in the game and I got an error message. I don't remember exactly what it said, but I was unable to go any further in the game. Otherwise, the game was was okay.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repeated Prologue is Tedious
The game requires you to watch the prologue every time you want to resume playing. Makes it very frustrating since it is a rather long prologue.
