Trilobyte Games have announced the final episode in the blockbuster franchise; The 7th Guest: 3, and unveiled a new Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the videogame.
The 7th Guest was released in 1993. At the time, Bill Gates called it: “…the new standard in interactive entertainment.” The title sold over 2 million copies and drove hardware sales. The sequel, The 11th Hour, was released in 1995.
“We’ve been waiting to make The 7th Guest: 3 for a long time,” said Rob Landeros, co-founder, creative director and CEO of Trilobyte Games. “The team’s in place; new puzzles are in development, and the most notorious villain in all gaming, Henry Stauf, is poised to return and finish the story that begin in The 7th Guest. With the launch of our Kickstarter campaign, we’re turning to our fans and the gaming community to provide the only remaining ingredient, development and production funding.”
Kickstarter is all about rewards. And Team Trilobyte has cooked up some creative incentives to motivate its target funders. “How’d you like to be immortalised in a blockbuster game?” asked Landeros. “At the highest donor levels, we reward backers with portraits and busts of their likeness at prominent points in the mansion – as well as a producer’s credit on the title. True fans may secure, with a major donation, an invitation to dine with Stauf in costume, party with the team, and tour the actual mansion modeled in the game.”
