Vertigo Games reveals The 7th Guest VR is in development, remaking Trilobyte's CD-ROM horror classic this year on Quest 2.
Developed by Vertigo Studios Rotterdam, The 7th Guest VR takes us back to Henry Stauf’s haunted mansion, using volumetric video capture "to recreate the FMV (full-motion video) storytelling of the original game." Vertigo promises a fresh take on this classic point-and-click adventure, recreating the infamous mansion in full 3D with new controls. You can see this in action below:
Originally released in 1993 by Trilobyte, The 7th Guest gained significant attention for using live-action clips and pre-rendered 3D graphics. A less successful follow-up set in the then-modern day, The 11th Hour, followed two years later, though further sequels never materialized. Even now, the original remains a cult classic and alongside the original Myst, it's considered a killer app for CD-ROMs.
The 7th Guest VR arrives on the Meta Quest platform and PC VR in 2023.
