On the morning of 2/2/2012, Trilobyte LLC, GOG.com (Good old Games), and DotEmu.com made an amazing announcement that rocked the very foundations of the earth. For the first time in over a decade, The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour are once again officially available on the PC!
The two games that revolutionized the PC gaming industry in the 90s have now come home in an official and supported manner.
While those who still have the original game discs can choose to run emulators to play the games, these official releases will enable those who no longer have their game discs and/or were never exposed to the games will finally have access to these classics.
The DotEmu site has already been updated and the games are available for purchase now. At the time of this article, GOG.com has yet to make any official announcement, though sources clearly point to the release coming soon.
From all of us here at The 13th Doll project, we congratulate Trilobyte on their return to the PC market, and look forward to seeing what the future may hold for Stauf and his puppets.
If you aren’t part of our Facebook group, you don’t know what you are missing. Recent active conversations have been discussing everything from actors to our favorite Stauffian quotes and taunts. Things have been heating up, “soup’s on”, so come and join us. It’s to die for…
As RHK mentioned, it is the support of you, the fans, that helps to keep us going on this project. The more people we see interested, the more WE want to see the project completed.
Over the years The 13th Doll project has had a lot of supporters. They have been with us through thick and thin, through good times and in bad. Heck, they’ve even helped to hold Stauf off our backs at a cost to their own sanity!
As a thank you to our dedicated supporters and fans, we have put up a “fans” section displaying the artwork, music and videos that forum members and others have submitted to us in order to keep our imaginations inspired and to encourage us to keep moving forward.
Keep in mind, that while these are not officially associated with the project, we like to think of those who have supported us over the years as honorary team members so, they deserve to have their work displayed as much as this project deserves to be completed.
