Description

The year is 2189. Theo DaCabe, the surveying officer for the Buckinghamshire Country Council, enters the headquarters of a fad religion that calls itself "Optimology" to do a quick health and safety check of this slowly-but-steadily growing cult.

But suddenly he finds himself badly hurt and broken in an underground ward, a female doctor called Samantha Harty nursing his wounds. And who is this man with the hat guarding the door? Could it be Trilby, a mythical character from two centuries ago? And why does Theo have a bad feeling that something - or somebody - is haunting this underground complex?

6 Days a Sacrifice ties up all the loose ends left open by the preceding games in The Chzo Mythos: 5 Days a Stranger, 7 Days a Skeptic and Trilby's Notes. Can Theo put an end to the killings performed by The Prince and the homicidal spectre John DeFoe once and for all? And can he save himself and the other people in the basement of the sect?

Trivia

Countdown Promotional Games

Prior to the release of the game, Yahtzee also wrote three brief text adventure games to promote 6 Days a Sacrifice: Countdown 1 - The Body, Countdown 2 - The Soul and Countdown 3 - The Mind. These adventures are in the standard Infocom Z-machine format, and thus can be played via a text adventure interpreter such as one of the many ports of Frotz.

References

Apparently "Optimology" referenced in the game is a not-so-subtle dig at the Scientology religion.
