The 7th Guest: 3, an upcoming third instalment in Trilobyte's gloriously cheesy, classic adventure-puzzle franchise, has been announced, and is in development for iOS, Android, Mac, and PC.
"In the world of The 7th Guest: 3, you will re-enter the mysterious and magical mansion, newly restored with games, puzzles and artifacts," studio co-founder Charlie McHenry told Polygon. "But it is still haunted, as players will soon discover. You will learn more about what happened on that terrible night, and discover the real story and previously hidden secrets of the gaming world's most mysterious toymaker."
According to McHenry, the dev team will consist of both "some of the original team members from the 90's" alongside several new staffers to help design the game's new puzzles. Apparently, the team is looking to have the title done and dusted in 12 to 18 months, and is "discussing collaborations with some funding partners" to aid in development. Mc Henry also hinted towards a Kickstarter campaign next month, though that will depend on successes or failure in sourcing funding through other channels first.
