Then came "The 11th Hour". Although thoroughly enjoyed by puzzlefans all over the world, it was sub-standard compared to the possibilities and graphics of other games at that time.
The game studio Trilobyte went belly-up, but despite that, rumors of the third installment ("The Collector") lingered for many, many years. When the waiting took too long, a group of fans gathered and promised they'd make a new installment that would be freely available once done.
And now, after 5 years in the making and little to no news, we now have a release date. Halloween 2009, get ready to download The 13th Doll.
Stauf is back.
