"Alone in the Dark II" (not Jack in the Dark) is out in France,
though some copies have trickled over here. It looks pretty nice, but its
hard to play without knowing French (to me, anyway).
As for comparing 7th Guest and Alone in the Dark, you might want
to look at back issues of INTELLIGENT GAMER magazine. Issue #1 had a
review by me of AITD, and issue #2 featured 7th Guest. I compared them to
each other numerous times in both reviews, so that may help you out.
Look in the FTp site wuarchive.wustl.edu
In the directory pub\msdos_uploads\icg
GAME1193.ZIP and GAME0194.ZIP are the two issues in question. You'll need
a PC with Dos 3.1 or better and a color monitor is recommended.
Hope that helps.
