Trilobyte Games gets additional distributor

Medford-based Trilobyte Games has announced that its products will be available through another international distributor, GamersGate.

Rob Landeros, creative director and chief executive officer of Trilobyte, said in a press release that the deal will expand distribution opportunities for the company's signature games, "The 7th Guest" and "The 11th Hour."

Landeros noted the company already had distribution agreements with DotEmu of Paris, France, Good Old Games of Warsaw, Poland, and the Mac Game Store.

GamersGate is selling a PC version of the title for $9.99 through its site, the same price offered at DotEmu and Good Old Games. Trilobyte Games recently released a Mac version of "The 7th Guest," which sells for $9.99 in all Mac App Stores and runs on Snow Leopard and Lion.

First released in 1993 for the PC and Mac, in 2010 for the iPhone, and again in 2011 for the Mac, "The 7th Guest" is now available for mobile devices, such as Apple's iPhone and iPad, at the iTunes App Store.

"The 11th Hour" is a sequel to "The 7th Guest," continuing a horror story and presenting the user with more puzzles to solve.

Trilobyte Games is located at 2822 Orchard Home Drive. Joining Landeros in the enterprise are John Fricker, chief technology officer, and Charlie McHenry, co-founder.

GamersGate, based in Sweden, is a digital distribution platform for PC and Mac games.

It has the largest catalog of games available for download on the Web, with more than 3,500 titles.
