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

Creepy, twisted, extremely puzzling, and LOADS of fun!
6 November 1999 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

What a game! For it's generation, this game tops the rest. Six guests are trapped in the most creepy mansion I've ever seen come to life on the PC screen! An old, sick, rich, retired toymaker has more in store for them then it would seem! If they can solve his "puzzle", they will recieve their heart's deepest desire. (Very much like The House on Haunted Hill) Things get creepy when they get murderous at the finding of "the seventh guest", a small, innocent boy who was dared to enter the old mansion. As the player advances through the rooms, he/she learns the chilling story of what had happened that night so many years ago. Solve mind-boggling puzzles and try to escape Stauf's evil grip. This game spells FUN!
