I spent many, many hours

I spent many, many hours a few years ago lost in the worlds created by Trilobyte software. 7th Guest, 11th Hour, and Clandestiny were superb puzzle-based games, and still rank among the best I’ve ever played. I was wondering today what they’re up to, as I’ve not heard of anything from them in a while. Turns out they closed their doors this year, after falling from about as high as a software company can possible get. Their defunct homepage linked to this excellent article from GameSpot that charts the rise and fall of Trilobyte. It’s over 20 pages long, but does a great job of describing what was happening there. As an employee of a software startup myself, the article was all the more pertinant.
