The 13th Doll will be releasing by Halloween October 31st!



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, but evolved into a fully licensed game.

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!

Thanks Ana,

Sorry I haven't been as active as I should be here. That being said, yes, we are VERY excited to be releasing the game this Halloween. (For Reals this time)

There is still a ton of work going on between bug fixes, play testing, marketing, and everything else.

The game should be available on Steam, GOG, and Itch.io for launch day.

Thank you to the GameBoomers community for all your help and encouragement since day one of our project. It is truly appreciated!

We just posted a Kickstarter update about that. Any backers or slacker backers can go to http://www.the13thdoll.com/credits/backerview.htm to get their Steam key. This will load the game into your library but, no download until Halloween!

If your email doesn't pull something up, shoot an email to the13thdollrewards@gmail.com and we'll get it set up right away!

For those who prefer the DRM-free route, we are working with GOG to get our store page set up. They are a little bit more involved than Steam. We also plan to release the game on itch.io .

Not happy to say that I did not.
Once again I get sent a useless Steam key for a Kickstarter.
I can tell a Kickstarter 7,843,625,333,872,888 times I want a DRM-free version, and they'll still send a stinkin' Steam key.

Glad you didn't have a problem Mad, and sorry that you did Jenny. I just went for the readily available Steam key when I received the email, rather than worry about whether they'd get to the GOG keys or not, even though I have both The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour from GOG.

Jenny, how do you say that number?

When I received my Kickstarter email about the Steam keys being released I immediately replied that I didn't use Steam and requested a GOG code - and was sent one almost "by return" 👍

Can you not do the same, Jenny100 ??

Well, they sent me a GOG code after I complained, so the game is in my purchase history.
It looks like GOG won't have the download ready until October 31.

The itch.io page is here

Anyway, I bought Goetia at 80% off to play with in the meantime.

Jenny, Steam isn't live until the release on Halloween too. They just gave us the keys.

" They just gave us the keys." ??

I've gotten at least 3 emails regarding the Steam key and name on the wall. I activated my Steam key 3 weeks ago on 10/07.

Ana, my name was just under or above yours on the wall; can't remember which now.

Yes. Thanks for posting about it, Mad.
If not for your post I wouldn't have known they were giving out GOG keys at this time.
