An unidentified man finds himself in the foyer of an old mansion that was once the property of a well known toy maker, a Mr. Stauf. As the man explores the mansion, he discovers that the mansion is haunted by six ghosts of people Stauf had called together for a party, with the expectation that an unknown seventh guest would eventually join them. After further exploration, it's discovered that the six guests have been caught in an elaborate trap; as they solved the mansion's puzzles and uncovered the mystery themselves, each was killed one by one, as Stauf's true nature as a man in league with the devil is revealed. However, as the six guests and the protagonist witnessing these ghostly events wander the mansion, they all have one question on their minds. Who is the seventh guest? Written by Anonymous

Dark and Chilling but great addicting puzzles
2 July 1999 | by (Memphis, TN, USA) – See all my reviews

I first came across this game when it first came out and immediately bought it just because the box looked really great. Even though it is just a box it really depicts the game. Just as the box is the game is dark, lonely, and invites you to play. I found myself playing it for hours trying to solve the puzzles. At the time the graphics were ground-breaking and the game play was unique. I played and got to the end, with a little help from the strategy guide. Now a few years later I played it again and found myself interested again. As mentioned before the graphics are stunning and the acting is pretty good. The story is very good, except at the end I felt a little confused and wanted more. The puzzles were a good assortment of very easy and very hard (Stauf's face). Overall it is a great puzzle game that will pull you into the house and will not let you leave. Now I understand that they made a sequel, The 11th hour. Ill have to go check that out.
