Not that there were riots in the streets demanding a remake, but not for nothing, Trilobyte Games have announced a new Kickstarter to help fund the follow-up to The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour 18 years after the latter’s release.
“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,” Trilobyte co-founder and creative director Rob Landeros said. The game will feature 20 puzzles and will “thoroughly leverage” mobile and touch-screen technology, according to the release.
“We estimate development and production time of approximately one year to finish this final episode,” said Landeros. “Our team is already working and we’re the kind of studio that delivers on its promises, so be ready.” The 7th Guest 3: The Collector is expected to launch for US$29.95 on PC and Mac when it’s eventually released. If the thought of HD full-motion-video with “real actors” and puzzles within a puzzle doesn’t scare you in 2013, then you can be super generous by contributing to their Kickstarter.
