Stauf's Game Is Not Over
Old man Stauf built a house
And filled it with
Six guests all came one night
Their screams the only noise
No one knows what happened next
There's no one left to say
if you should see Old Man Stauf
Get on your knees and pray
Children's Rhyme, Anonymous
Henry Stauf's mansion has been abandoned for as long as
anyone dare remember. Stauf was a master toymaker, 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.
Groundbreaking use of full motion video and dialogue
recorded by live actors in a terrifyingly real virtual environment.
Old Man Stauf's bizarre puzzles to solve and games to
22 stunningly rendered, devilishly surprising 3-D rooms
await you in this fully explorable haunted mansion.

ComputerLife, October 1994
"It was when I entered the haunted house of the fiendish toy
maker Henry Stauf that I truly began to appreciate the tremendous possibilities
CDs have to offer. I was trapped in a beautiful, if terrifying, surrealistic
world where six guests of Old Man Stauf had mysteriously disappeared one night
long ago. I quickly learned that if I wanted to see the light of day again, I
would have to solve a series of increasingly difficult, chess-like puzzles
placed throughout the house."
"But I wasn't just trapped in the house, I was hooked. The
devilishly difficult puzzles in this game practically drove me nuts, yet I
found myself seduced by the game's chillingly spectacular graphics and was
determined to discover the house's secret. Believe me, this is spooky
