Trilobyte was a video game company founded in December 1990 by Graeme Devine and Rob Landeros. The two went on to produce one of the most expensive and technically demanding games of the time, The 7th Guest. The game was a huge success and was followed up by The 11th Hour, but the company had a lot of in-fighting between the founders, and, after a handful more lack-luster games, and several expensive canceled projects, the company folded in 1999. A couple failed attempts were made to revive the company, but, in November 2010, Trilobyte was relaunched as Trilobyte Games, which, as far as I know, has no relation to the original company other than the name. So far, they've only released ports of existing games, games based on the existing puzzles, and licensed a fan remake.

Personal

I loved The 7th Guest which is how I heard of the company, and started to enjoy The 11th Hour, but hardware problems always plagued me. I eventually beat The 7th Guest in 2021. To me, Trilobyte is one of those "what might have been" companies.

Games

These are the games Trilobyte worked on that are important to me. For all Trilobyte games, see the categories for games developed or published.
