Good Old Games Adds Classic Adventures '7th Guest' And '11th Hour'

by Rainier on Feb. 2, 2012 @ 8:06 a.m. PST has signed a digital distribution agreement with Trilobyte Games, expanding its catalog with 7th Guest and 11th Hour, priced at $9.99, both Win7/Vista compatible, and DRM free.

Trilobyte, founded 1991 by Rob Landeros and Graeme Devine, is one of those companies that decided to swim upstream and, as a result, changed the flow of gaming history. The company, reorganized by Landeros under the name Trilobyte Games in 2010, is most famous for creating and releasing the PC game The 7th Guest. In 1993, when most games would fit on a couple floppies, the 7th Guest became one of the first computer games designed specifically for CD-ROM. The game eventually sold more than 2 million copies and is considered by many the killer app that created a demand for CD-ROM drives.

  • The 7th Guest is a gothic thriller adventure set inside an eerie abandoned mansion on the edge of town in 1935. The game presents enigmatic puzzles, large amount of pre-rendered 3D graphics, live action video clips and an original, orchestrated musical score. Bill Gates lauded the game as "the future of multimedia."
  • The 11th Hour , the highly anticipated sequel to The 7th Guest, features similar logic riddles, improved in terms of quality and quantity of the FMV sequences, and an engaging horror story set 60 years later, but in the same rotting mansion.

“Trilobyte games will be always recognized by the tense atmosphere, solid brain-teasers, great cinematic sequences, and orchestrated music,” said managing director Guillaume Rambourg. “The 7th Guest and 11th Hour are a splendid addition to catalog and we’re thrilled that they’ve finally taken their place on the ever-growing list of great games available through our service.”

Both The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour will be available on in the near future for $9.99 each.
