Update 7/13/12

Happy Friday the 13th everyone,

Our apologies for a lack of update on the status of the project. For the record, we are not dead, despite our employer being so, and we are still chugging along on the project.

Secondly, the site did get compromised for a brief period of time. That has since been corrected and shouldn’t happen in the future. Let’s just say our employer prefers not to be associated with any viruses of any sort and has taken some aggressive actions against the perpetrators.

We are currently focusing on tweaking some of the models and textures to ensure the best possible player experience. Some of the aspects of the models, textures and even some of the lighting just need to be re-worked a bit. There were parts where inconsistencies were causing some distraction from the game environment which would distract a player from the experience of the game.

The second major thing we are working on is streamlining the code in the various puzzles throughout the game. This will result in less delays during puzzle play and, again, will result in a more enjoyable and frightening experience.

Truthfully, our goal is to provide everyone with the best possible visit to the Stauf Mansion, especially after the years of work and development that have gone into this project. We want to make sure that it is a game that we, ourselves will enjoy playing and looking at, even after all of the work that has been put into it. We want the experience to be unforgettable and to be thoroughly enjoyed.

Please don’t be too worried about us. We are busy at work and will continue to ensure that every dusty relic and coffin in the house is as it should be. We aren’t going anywhere. Our employer has made one thing quite clear. He wants it to be a game to DIE for.


The 13th Doll - the fan made sequel based on the original computer game The 7th Guest by Trilobyte, Inc.

    Thank you so much for the update! Good friends of mine are already discovering The 7th Guest, and its resurface for iOS platforms means the classic will NEVER die (could it ever?), and I’m even happier to see that 13th Doll is still alive, too! Good luck, and sorry that you had to go through all that virus crap!

    Hey guys its great to see another update, can’t wait until the game’s finished – just to let you know your site loads very slowly atm, might be a bandwidth issue. Best wishes to all the team and don’t give up guys! :)
