A remastered version of a rather famous game called The 7th Guest has arrived onto Android today in a special 20th Anniversary Edition. This release is also an Android exclusive, which is nice to have for a change. Originally released by Trilobyte Games in 1993, it won a number of awards between 1993 and 1994, ending up as the #1 rated game for 1994. Now that the game has turned twenty, it has been completely remastered and released onto Google Play today.
For those of you not familiar with this game, The 7th Guest has players taking on the role of an active and mysterious entity known only as “Ego”. You have no idea what your purpose is, who you are, or why you even exist. However, you learn all of this as you progress through the game which is located in Stauf mansion. In total you will have to work your way through 22 different rooms, each one containing a puzzle that you have to solve.
The 7th Guest Features:
– Groundbreaking use of full-motion video and dialogue recorded by live actors in a terrifyingly virtual environment.
– Bizarre puzzles to solve and games to play.

While the visuals have been remastered, players have the option to match up the original soundtrack to the game or the new remastered musical score. The voice acting is all in tact but there is also a new subtitles mode available as well. On top of that, the controls have been completely redesigned for better gameplay. This 20th Anniversary Edition also comes with a slew of extras including 19 deleted scenes and 33 deleted audio parts, 36 song soundtrack, the original 7th Guest novel,the original game script, The Stuaf Files booklet, and the original game manual.
