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

Game appreciation
14 January 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The 7th Guest is the first Video Game ever to be released on CD-ROM. As for me, I love point-and-click adventure games. Something that has died with the rise of shoot-em-up games, strategy games and neat graphics... The 7th Guest is not only an entertaining game with all its puzzles, but also has a capturing story line. Plays and movies can be written about it. But so far none have made it to the screen (if only Tim Burton would read this)... As for possible casting, I leave it to your better judgment. However, maybe Stauf can be a role for an older Jack Nicholson?

Along with the Monkey Island series it has a place in my favorite all-time adventure games. Whereas Monkey Island is more humorous, The 7th Guest is more of a thriller-horror genre. (When I played this game at a young age I remember being awfully scared of the lady who draws you to her in the hallway..)

A definite must-have-played game. Though it doesn't run well with recent operating systems...
