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!

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!.

Hey there guys, Reading the blog post on Kickstarter I wanted to offer a solution from someone who works with different video codecs on a daily basis. Does unity offer a playback of .mov Quicktime files? Most of my overlay graphics for videos (such as lower thirds) I render in a Go Pro Maximum 12-bit alpha codec using Adobe Media Encoder. I do not know if you have tried this already but I figured you might be interested! Feel Free to reach out!

Have we had any new developments in this game?
I participated in the kickstarter and the last thing I saw was January sadly.
Big fan of the older 2 (if you couldnt tell by the picture) and really wanna get this game to play!

@Rainer: Thanks for the reply. This project stuck in a limbo for so many years and the lack of news was worrying me, especially now that we're so damn close to the finish line, according to the latest official updates on kickstarter.

I too tend to stay away from social networks (heck, I think I've unsubscribed from FB years ago...). I hope they'll give us some good news soon, on the project page.

Ahh, I did not know that because I tend to stay away from Facebook, but their page is great. Unfortunately it sounds like the game won't be out for at least a few months still, agh.
