In the world of The 7th Guest, you are an active and mysterious entity known only as "Ego". Your role, identity and purpose is not known or explained, rather, it is experienced as a seamlessly integral part of the total environment that is the Stauf mansion. Because you are looking out from within, you cannot see yourself, but your inner spirit has a voice. Listen to it.

The house of The 7th Guest is filled with 19 devilishly clever puzzles that will test your wits and scare you out of them as well. To complete the game you must solve every puzzle in the house - only then will the secrets of the madman Henry Stauf be revealed to you.

"My father purchased The 7th Guest for me as a child and it terrified me to the point of having him return it. With my increase and courage and the scary images being smaller, I think I can handle it now." - Geek Tyrant 

"Many gamers won't remember The 7th Guest, either because they didn't have the groundbreaking technology of a CD-ROM drive in 1993, or they hadn't been born yet. We remember The 7th Guest being an incredibly creepy game that snared our young imaginations and helped shape our minds as gamers." - Slide To Play

Bill Gates called this game “The new standard in electronic entertainment.”

A+ puzzle game & must-see artifact for its time

This is an excellent puzzle game with a capturing story to push the game along. Revel in the 3D graphics of the early 90s—this was the height of 3D computer gaming at the time. Each puzzle you complete and each character exchange you witness unlocks the next step of the game. If you suspect a glitch, revisit each room of the mansion for these clues and story relevations.

New players to 7th Guest: the only bug you’ll encounter is after saving a game, you will have to manually quit (file->quit). Enjoy it otherwise! And don’t look up walkthroughs of how to win the puzzles.

Veteran players (AKA you played it in the 90s): two games are missing. You can still complete the game and it’s still very satisfying to do so. The missing games are the piano puzzle and microscope puzzle.

A+ for it’s time. Don’t miss out.

Missing puzzles

I’m enjoying playing this game, as I remember playing it growing up. However, it’s missing the microscope and the music room puzzles, so I’m pretty much unable to keep going. Very frustrating.

I played this for five minutes. There is no help, explanation of game play, nothing. I understand there are keyboard commands one can use but I haven’t found a list of them.

I tried to quit and the game restarted. The would only restart using game commands and always began the game from the beginning. I could only use “command-q” to quit and it doesn’t save the game. Actual game play is very glitchy and not particularly responsive to the touch pad, the music is loud. I will be demanding a refund.
