Description

This interquel connecting 5 Days a Stranger and 7 Days a Skeptic explains fully how Trilby regained possession of the idol after the DeFoe Manor incident and also gives more information about the properties of the mysterious idol. This game is different to its predecessors because although it is still made in AGS, this one uses a text parser interface.

Trivia

If everything in the game is related to the 28th July, there is a small error in the timeline. Compare the story of Matthew DeFoe in 5 Days a Stranger and in Trilby's Notes. Indeed, in 5DAS, Matthew DeFoe disappeared the 28th June 1821 when in Tribly's Notes, it happens the 28th July 1821.
