Old Man Stauf built a house, and filled it with his toys. Six guests were invited one night, their screams the only noise. Blood inside the library, blood right up the hall. Dripping down the attic stairs, hey guests, try not to fall. Nobody came out that night, not one was ever seen. But Old Man Stauf is waiting there, crazy, sick, AND MEAN!

When I check the date of development and publication, every little detail that makes this game reveals to be self-explanatory: 1993. Whew! Which means this mindwreckingly hard little puzzle game is 23 years old! Still, The 7th Guest, Trilobyte's one shot wonder puzzle adventure is a hardcore challenge for whom wouldn't mind the prehistoric graphics and overdramatized FMV acting.

The story is set in 1935, where we observe the story of Henry Stauf, a drifter who kills a young woman and steals her purse. Later, Stauf began receiving strange visions of magnificent toys and interesting puzzles. Guided by those visions, Stauf soon becomes a legendary toymaker. Every household with a child residing would soon know the presence of a Stauf toy. Yet, after a strange disease starting among children that own Stauf toys, the eccentric and not so benevolent genius shuts himself down into his eerie mansion. One night, 6 guests - a former actress, a kindly middle aged couple, another toymaker, a bank manager and a magician - show up before the Stauf Manor, with invitation sent by him. They are all warned about a 7th Guest who'd make an appearance at some point. We explore Stauf's wicked and wondrous mansion, solve his exceedingly hard puzzles. Any desire of one's heart is the prize promised by our host. Let the games begin!

Okay, now let's talk about the game itself. This is a puzzle adventure where you'll keep wondering within the extraordinarily eerie mansion of Stauf, solve puzzles to reveal more of the storyline and eventually be a witness to events occurring amongst the guests. Graphics are really dated, but I must say that they managed to present a disturbing enough atmosphere with decent attention to detail. Lights, shadows, color palette and overall decoration is a great success in combination. Every little details is there to invoke Stauf's particular kind of insanity. Characters are presented in FMV cinematics. I won't present any spoilers here, but considering their condition, old and somewhat blurry character designs are ended up being quite appropriate anyhow. FMV acting in general is really cheesy and overdramatized, but it doesn’t not stand out compared to the tone of the game.

We were actually talking about puzzles, weren't we? Well, this game contains a selection of the hardest and harshest mind games that I've ever seen! They take attention, memory, logical thinking and patience! Many, many trial and error processes await you if you are to pick this challenge. There is a Microscope Puzzle nearing the end of the game for example - the success of AI is legendary for that one! I tried for 2 hours straight without any possible chance of me winning it. I gave up, AI was actually smarter than me on this one, and I cannot say that for many games. Luckily, if you are not that patient; there is an option of skipping puzzles but you have to visit a specific clue room 3 times straight for the skip to trigger. This game is certainly not in favor of the skipper.

I know I might sound kinda masochistic recommending this game, but I grew up in a generation where graphics in video games weren't that spectacular anyhow. So developers had to invest in narrative, stories and puzzles to keep things interesting. This is a really well-made one for its era and a challenging experience for anyone who'd boast about their IQ levels. Neither ending, nor storyline are that amazing but there is a certain twist in the story that some of you could enjoy. I know that I liked it. So... only one question remains at this point: are you willing to take the challenge that old man Stauf throws in your way?

I should start by saying I am giving this a very hesitant Recommendation. Part of me wants to say "NO", but I really feel that - should you find it for quite cheap - The 7th Guest is worth trying at least once.

Back in the 90s this game was rather noteworthy, though some would say that even back then it looked somewhat dated. To me, however, it was a game that I felt quite fondly towards for whatever reason. The music, the interesting way it handled cutscenes and the disjointed way you learned the plot all stuck with me. I actually used to listen to the 20-something audio track on the CD which played through all of the music with an opening and ending song and various voice clips spread throughout.

So, I haven't actually talked about the game itself, have I? Maybe I've been trying to avoid it. You see, even though I remember quite a lot of the game from my teenage years, the strongest memory I have was of this absolutely awful puzzle involving a microscope and the AI was smarter the better your computer was. When it first came out the contest was likely an even match but on anything more advanced it became virtually impossible unless you won by sheer luck. The game's other puzzles are by no means much better but none of them -stuck- with me after all this time.

I have no idea if my younger self was just more patient or if I went and looked up various solutions online. What I know NOW, however, is that they were either really simple or very frustrating with nothing really in between. Part of me honestly just wants to say it's cause I've finished the game before and simply don't care anymore. Whatever the case, I found most of the actual gameplay quite boring and just wanted to see the next scene.

Actually, no, I take that back. There IS another factor in all of this. During puzzles the protagonist and antagonist kept going on and ON constantly. You can't skip any of the disembodied dialogue and if you restart a puzzle you get to hear all of it over again! This, combined with how slowly every single transition was, swiftly got on my nerves to the point where I no longer cared and just wanted to get past the puzzles as quickly as possible. Yes, my apologies. I do have a terrible habit of meandering to my point.

Is the game bad? It honestly is, but it's that weird/cheesy kinda awful you just have to see once for yourself, to know if it's as bad as people claim. In the game's defence, if you can call it that, a lot of its problems lie in all the material that got left on the cutting room floor. The GOG version includes a document explaining how it was supposed to be, with multiple endings and a more coherent plot. If The 7th Guest had been made today it would've likely been a bizarre combination of Professor Layton's "random puzzles" with Resident Evil's "explore a spooky mansion".

I've read there were several Kickstarter/crowdfunding attempts to make a third game in the series which all failed, until a creator-approved fan game came along. All I do know is that, for better or worse, The 7th Guest is one of those games I played and will never really forget. I know some people knock the visuals, but really those are fine. It's the tendency for the voice to drowned out by the music that really hurts the presentation.

Very innovative for its time (1993) with live action actors and dialogue. Now a classic of old school logic games. The graphics on modern computers seem dated and most likely the gamer will have to adjust the frame rate and graphics to compensate.

Storyline: Stauf was a homeless thief and murder before he made a pact with a demon. After the pact Stauf, became a famous and wealthy toy maker, hand crafting toys and replica dolls (a doll that looks the child). Then there was plague that killed all the children that had Stauf's toys and dolls. After the plague, Stauf built a house full of puzzles (at the request of his personal demon). He invited six guests to his house with the promise they could have anything they wanted if they could solve his puzzles ... and for a price. Unwittingly a 7th guest arrived, a boy dared to enter the house. Greed, lust, betrayal and murder follow the arrival of the 7th guest.

The storyline is revealed in small cutscenes as the gamer explores the house and solves puzzles. What each character wants and how they end up dead is shown through these cut scenes, and as well as Stauf's master plan.

Gameplay: Challenging. Very challenging. Finding the puzzles to solve is half the challenge as they are scattered thoughout the house and generally on the floor. There is a puzzle per room and when looking at the map the room color will change once the puzzle is solved. Also certain rooms will not open until certain puzzles have been solved. There are no directions to any puzzle, though possibly a clue or two if one listens closely to the dialogue of the main character while trying to solve the puzzle. There is also a book on a table in the telescope room (library?) that will give clues and hints to solving each puzzle. Puzzles are revealed by skull with a brain still inside. A set of wind-up teeth show "short-cut" secret passages. A tragedy mask shows further cut scenes and animations.

Puzzles include: There are three classic chess logic puzzles, reverse the location of knights or bishops on a chessboard, and queen's territory (put 8 queens on a chessboard without their movement overlapping). Two coin puzzles, and a card puzzle. One 18 note musical "follow the leader" puzzle. A slider, and several turn based picture puzzles (or crypt lids) And one maze. (HINT: The maze does have map. The map is on a rug.) Also there is a game (found in a microscope) called Ataxx, it is a nasty version of Othello or Go, and from what I understand made especially for 7th Guest. All puzzles are logic puzzles, and all puzzles can be skipped by consulting with the "hint" book, after attempting the puzzle. (Usually takes twice play puzzle, consult book, play puzzle again, consult book, play puzzle one more time, consult book and it will say puzzle is solved.)

This a classic, difficult logic puzzle game. Recommended for those that like a challenge (and a bit of patience testing). There are solution guides that can be found on the internet.

I love this game, played it a LOT when it was out on the CD-i, yep you heard that right. The only game I played far more and was to become my favorite game was Burn:Cycle. But a review, it is still the great game it once was with only one exception, this steam release/port is terrible, it is laggy and glitchy with no real option to go full screen and so on, I would not point this out so harshly if it was not for the wonderful port to the iPad which is seemless, better looking and improved, so why is this version so damn terrible if the iPad is better. Overall in it's current state on here, it is pretty much unplayable. Shame really, the CD-i ran this far far better then they have it on Steam.

*edit*
Also just to mention, for £5, this really should be a far better port than it is, especially when there is (and I have it) a £3.99 version on GoG which works brilliantly, so yeah, really no excuse for this crappy steam version.
