7th guest-the collector - 08/24/05 09:33 AM

Has anyone heard anything about the release of this game? The 7th Guest was the 1st game I ever played & I was hooked so I had to get the 11th Hour. I've seen some things about the Collector but can't get anymore info.This is my 1st post & I don't know what took me so long to join because I've coming to this website for years. Oh well, I guess it's just a case of "old dogs, new tricks".

I think The Collector has gone home - I don't think you'll ever see it.

Check this out though:

About The Collector...
They couldn't get a publisher interested in funding development so it's cancelled.

From the site the Derman found

2. I heard news about an official sequel, The Collector. Isn't that the actual The 7th Guest 3?.

I think we were all excited about The Collector. The demo seemed to be a major departure from the previous games, but an official sequel it was. The company responsible for the demo apparently didn't get the response they needed from it, and has since dropped the project and removed any evidence of it from their website. Unfortunately, this seems to have killed any interest from any other would be investors. The Collector still exists in some entity, but the chance of it actually being produced and released is essentially zero...

I just went to the site with the info on this game. Since it won't be marketed like the 7th Guest and 11th Hour, are they still working to get it finished to download? I am most eager to get this on my system smile

Tsavorite -- are you talking about the fan-made game -- The 13th Doll? There's info on the site in the link provided above by The Dermon. There's also a forum you can post in for further info.

Hi Tsavorite,

I'm also working in The 13th Doll - The 7th Guest III and I can say that we're still working in the game and everything goes fantastic. You'll see the Stauf Manor as never seeing before smile

As Becky posted, it's a fan-made game. You can take a look to the public forum and, if you're interesed, you can also join the team.

EDIT: You can also join the The Silver Lining one wink (A King's Quest fan-made game) See my sign

Thanks for the info. I'm really looking forward to it.
I have no talent in programming, modeling or anything else that would be need to complete this game frown I am happy that fans are taking over, but does it have to have a chess puzzle? I hate chess. rotfl

lol Watch out now for the chess-lovers. (My favorite chess puzzle was the one in Zork Grand Inquisitor, which I'm sure was a riff on Stauf's version of the game.)

Hark! I LOVE chess, but understand your frustration.
Just can't get the puzzles like we want them in all
the games, can we. But we keep coming back. :-)
I LOVED 7th guest and 11th hour.
I'll be looking forward to the 13th Doll!
Thanx for this post. wave

Becky, I've designed a puzzle in The 13th Doll, a chess one, that hope you'll love too wink

An interview done with Ryan Holtkamp is in the Jonaventure webpage. It's in spanish and english. Hope you'll enjoy it and discover some news.

Note: You *must* see the spanish one, because there's 2 *never-seen-before* images of The 13th Doll. Think it was a problem with the editor and this images weren't included in the english version.

Re: 7th guest-the collector - 03/04/06 03:01 PM

You're right -- the screenshots in both the Spanish and English versions are well worth seeing!

Franz -- you must be very busy, working on both The 13th Doll and The Silver Lining.

Not enough it seems, I also have time to work as proofreader (for es_ES spanish) in Elephants Dream movie (website: http://orange.blender.org ), studying Mines and editing 2 handwritting of XVI & XVIII century.

But, as always, I do my best smile

I miss only 2 things: a boyfriend... cry and sleep

lol Well, sleep isn't necessary for long term happiness! But you might want to do something about the boyfriend problem.... think

One bad aspect about the digital revolution. People who work together and have common interests are often on different continents. Makes it hard to meet that someone who is special.

On the other hand, if you end up with a spouse and four children, you will inevitably have less time for gaming and/or game development. laugh

Wow! those brought back memories... circa the age of "Compuserve". Does anyone know if they upgraded these games to play on XP or are they still at the old school versions?

Re: 7th guest-the collector - 03/05/06 12:39 AM

I think they are still old school, RLR. smile

Yes, they're for the old school... but... you can try the DirectX beta player they released.

You can take a look to the fantastic guide done by Inferno at HERE
