The CD-i version of The 7th Guest was a 'console-exclusive' version and one of the best games developed for CD-i. I found it very interesting to find out Virgin Games planned a 'console-exclusive' version of The 7th Guest before on the SNES CD-ROM; that mysterious console some say CD-i and Playstation were born out of. Digging through our archive didn't mention anything related between both versions like that the license was pushed to Philips or development started actually at Trilobyte or Virgin itself; as far as we know the conversion to CD-i was handled at Philips in Dorking. It's very interesting that Virgin started with The 7th Guest licensing to Nintendo in the first place, as Nintendo planned to publish The 7th Guest itself for the SNES CD.
