Game release: “The 13th Doll: A Fan Game of The 7th Guest” (PC)

Attic Door Productions‘ horror adventure game The 13th Doll: A Fan Game of The 7th Guest gives puzzle aficionados a chance to return to the Stauff mansion after all these years.

FMV adventures might not be for everyone, but many released in the 90ies are still fondly remembered even today. One of those is The 7th Guest (see my review) that already received a 25th anniversary edition (see game release news). There was also The 11th Hour (reviewed here), although this one didn’t particularly fare as well due to more gore and an unsympathetic main character. Now after all these years, a true sequel by fans is finally out.

After having escaped the mansion of mysterious toymaker Henry Stauff, the 7th guest Tad is still haunted by all the horrors he had seen, especially by finding out what happened to his predecessors. This results in him ending up in a mental institution. In order to rescue those he has left behind, a new doctor advises him to return to the mansion once again and defeat his demons, real or imaginary. Having two characters who interact certainly adds a bit more flesh to a storyline that was originally quite convoluted. Of course gameplay again revolves around solving various logic puzzles in each room, while not trying to go insane. Ropey acting aside, the atmosphere seems to be spot on, and even if the gameplay might not be up to modern standards, it stays true to the original creepiness, and that’s probably all that matters.

Having started out as a freeware project, the game has evolved into a fully licensed title, which might also be the reason why one has to pay for it. The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount that will last until November 7th, 6pm UTC. Everyone who owns The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour will receive it with 25% off.
