Trilobyte is a computer game developer founded in December 1990 by Graeme Devine and Rob Landeros. It was founded to develop The 7th Guest, for which it is most famous.

In the late 1990's, they had a publishing deal with Red Orb Entertainment, but when The Learning Company purchased Red Orb's parent company Brøderbund in 1998, they cancelled all projects at Red Orb. With publisher funding cut off, this led to the company's closure in 1999.

Trilobyte released four games between 1993 and 1998:

All of these games use the Groovie engine, which was developed for The 7th Guest, but which underwent major modifications for the later games.

In 2010, Rob Landeros reformed Trilobyte. It is the current publisher of The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour, as well as Tender Loving Care, which was developed by the company Rob Landaros founded after he left Trilobyte, Aftermath Media. Tender Loving Care also used the Groovie engine.
