Back of Box - DOS (United States):
    Henry Stauf's mansion had been abandoned for as long as anyone dare remember. Stauf was a master toy maker, a maker of amazing puzzles and this strange house was his greatest creation. Now, the mansion stands empty, rotting ever since the children started dying, ever since the six guests came. Now there are only the eerie lights and the terrible sing-song rhymes of the children...
    And suddenly, you are in the house. You move from room to haunted room, step by terrifying step, as scenes from that night of horror come to life. Because Stauf's game isn't over. There were six guests the world knew about - and there was one other. Stauf's mad mansion lives again. And only you can end the nightmare and learn the secret of The 7th Guest.

    “Can a computer game really scare you witless? American development team Trilobyte reckons it's possible - and is currently pushing back the boundaries of PC programming to prove it. Get ready to quiver behind the sofa.”
    ACE MAGAZINE

    “Guest will completely stun you.”
    PC REVIEW

    “...the graphics are so real, you felt you were watching a film, rather than a created-as-you-press-the-button computer game.”
    COMPUTER GAMING REVIEW


    Old man Stauf built a house
    And filled it with his toys
    Six guests all came one night
    Their screams the only noise

    No one knows what happened next
    There's no one left so say
    But if you should see Old Man Stauf
    Get on your knees and pray

    Children's rhyme
