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