The 7th Guest by Trilobyte Games released in 1993 and is a classic puzzle-solving horror game that was one of the first to take advantage of the CD-ROM format. Anyone who has played the original title, will remember clearly the haunted mansion of Henry Stauf and to say the whole thing was a little creepy (in a good way) would be an understatement.

I have seen a few attempts in the past, where a return of The 7th Guest has made news beyond what we saw in The 11th Hour, but it’s only now we see The 7th Guest appear in this now Virtual Reality (VR) form advertised for the Meta Quest.

The iconic mystery game that chilled you to the bone in the 90s, the 7th Guest, has been brought back to life with cutting-edge VR technology that delivers an atmospheric and haunting story. Explore the foreboding mansion, solve challenging puzzles, and uncover its dark secrets. The 7th Guest VR is the ultimate mystery adventure, and it’s time for you to experience it for yourself. Six guests have been welcomed to the foreboding mansion. But something sinister is at play…

According to a post on Mastodon by Charlie McHenry one of the founders of Trilobyte Games, the rights for the VR incarnation have been licensed by Vertigo Games to bring to us what we see today.

I am intrigued to see how this will translate to a VR experience, although I am sure the atmosphere will certainly lend itself well to the enclosed up close and personal feeling you achieve with something like virtual reality.
