Please help The 13th Doll: A Fan Game of The 7th Guest Doll get Greenlit on Steam by voting here.

Also, the Kickstarter is now live, so you can check it out Here.

Quote:
The 13th Doll is a game created by and for fans of The 7th Guest series! It began as an all volunteer, freeware passion project. Recently, the developers were granted the license to create the game as a retail product. We're currently running a Kickstarter to fund the game - please take a look!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/64161490/the-13th-doll-a-fan-game-of-the-7th-guest

In the 7th Guest, evil toymaker Henry Stauf built a mansion, and invited 6 guests. A 7th Guest, Tad, snuck in and was trapped there, afflicted by mystifying spirits, dolls and the ghosts of the other guests - until he defeated Stauf.

The 13th Doll ties in with the events of The 7th Guest. A decade after Tad managed to escape the mansion, he is still haunted by the souls, dolls, and Stauf's victims he left behind. So haunted, in fact, that the young man now resides in a mental institution - misunderstood, plagued by guilt and obsessed with one idea: to escape the dreary padded walls of his asylum cell, return to the mansion - the site of his innermost fears - to rescue those he left behind and defeat Stauf once and for all!

Soon, a new doctor by the name of Richmond arrives in the asylum. Naïve to the legacy of Henry Stauf, and equally bewildered and intrigued by the fantastic legend, the staunch rationalist plans to take Tad on a cathartic trip back to the mansion.

This unconventional therapy attempt rapidly turns into a fateful journey, unravelling Tad and Richmond's contrasting worldviews and leading the unlikely duo straight into a horrifying vortex of lies, illusions, lunacy and death. And soon a blood-curdling question arises: Have the two visitors really made their way to Stauf's harrowing home on their own accord or are they mere pawns in a much grander, inescapable scheme?

While playing The 13th Doll, a lot of time will be spent navigating through gloomy sites, concealed rooms and maze areas from an immersive first person perspective. Thanks to the game being developed in Unity3d, this becomes an advanced and engaging experience, as the engine allows free movement and a fully accessible environment in detailed high-definition visuals. For the first time, players will be able to explore every inch of Stauf's residence and face all its eerie inhabitants up close and personal. A plethora of interactive, delightfully animated objects will bring even the most desolate locations to life.

Logic puzzles were an integral part of The 7th Guest's gameplay, and The 13th Doll follows suit. We've designed 26 original brain-teasers, all varying in style and offering a wide array of intellectual challenges. These diabolical creations are found throughout the game - whether it be card tricks, pathfinding and chess challenges, or even artificial intelligence puzzles versus Henry Stauf himself!


Happy Gaming!

Yeah, we didn't intend to launch the Kickstarter today but, Ryan put the link on the greenlight page. If people could hold off on jumping on Reddit and such so we can launch it properly tomorrow, that would be great!

Thanks for all those who have been supporting us, and for BrownEyedTigre who got this post up so quickly. Even prior to official launch, we have reached 10% of our goal, which is pretty amazing.

Official launch will be sometime in the next couple of hours! I'm doing a lot of prepping of posts all over the place right now!

Edit: We have OFFICIALLY launched the Kickstarter as of 9:13 EDT (13:13 UTC)

Edit 2: We are on reddit now too!

Hi 13th Doll team. I wanted to pop my head in and say that I've joined in on Kickstarter and made a donation.
So excited about this game, and I hope it gets fully funded! : )

Good luck you guys, and thank you for doing this. I loved the 7th Guest so much, and so this is like a dream come true. : )

Tracy, thank you so much for your support! Again, this game is for fans like you and everyone else here. The Greenlight appears to be doing well too.

Just popping in to thank everyone again! Our Kickstarter is up to 27%! We've had some great articles written out there about us so far. We are hoping to see more too!

Thanks! Yes, we thought we were doing well last night... Then we looked this morning and found that overnight we gained nearly 100 backers and were at nearly 40% funded. At last check, we are now at 41%+ !!

This is insane, in a good way!

In all seriousness GameBoomers was basically the ONLY forum to keep tabs on our game through the years! We were totally grateful when we found this lone forum advocating for our success! So yes, because of this forum we have held on to an audience that we didn't even know we had!

So, in fact, GameBoomers has played a significant role in our success!

As of this morning we are at 66%, 2/3 funded on Kickstarter! You are all amazing! This week we are hoping to reach a larger market of gamers because, most of the fans of T7G and Adventure Games know about the project.

If you want to help with that effort, here are some sites to "drop a line" to, especially the top three! Please don't spam them over and over, just 1 message will do. If we can get enough people telling the bigger gaming blogs about The 13th Doll, who knows, maybe we can get featured, which would be huge!
