How It Begins

You are a woman who joined a strange cult, the "Order of the Blessed Agonies", seeking direction in your life. As part of the initiation you are taken to a sealed room and given a gun. In the room, your boyfriend, Jason, is gagged and lashed to a chair.

Trivia and Comments

  • This is the second part of a trilogy of text adventure games. The trilogy was a build-up to the release of a graphical adventure game 6 Days A Sacrifice, the final part of the 5 Days a Stranger series.
  • The player only gets an overview of what is an extensive backstory. This game (and the rest of the Countdown series) continues a storyline begun in Croshaw's freeware amateur graphical adventure 5 Days a Stranger, continued in 7 Days a Skeptic and Trilby's Notes, and concluded in 6 Days a Sacrifice.
