‘The 7th Guest’ is Free Today in iTunes

The classic horror adventure game is free today for iOS and OSX. For those who haven’t played it, this is a port of a game which was originally released in 1993. It’s regarded as one of the early great successes of the CD based interactive movie games and it’s remembered for the lengthy, pre-rendered videos which drove the story.

The iOS version runs on both the iPad an iPhone and weighs in at a hefty 640MB. That makes this game not only a testimony to the revival of old games but to the value of physical media as well. It would take me less time to drive to a store to buy it than it would to download the app from iTunes.
