Chamber of the Sci-Mutant Priestess
DOS - 1989
Also released on: Amiga - Atari ST
Description of Chamber of the Sci-Mutant Priestess
A true cult classic, this is an original, weird adventure in the best tradition of Exxos (maker of the equally weird Captain Blood and Purple Saturn Day).
I gave up trying to summarize the wacky plot-- suffice to say that you're Raven, an alien equipped with sci-powers who must rescue the future leader of your people from the evil Protozorqs. Gameplay uses a standard icon-based interface, with some novel twists.
Similar to Zork, you can cast various spells (here called "sci powers") that range from night vision to walking on walls. Unfortunately, most puzzles can easily be solved by using sci powers, and there are very few instances that require you to use items in your inventory. Still, the original plot, great atmosphere, and fun sci powers make up for the game's extremely short length.
Recommended, but only to novice adventurers or Exxos fans.

I love how every Exxos game is so uniquely unlike every other game you'll ever play.

I remember playing this on the Amiga back in the 80s/90s. It was called KULT in Europe. Very weird and kinda franco-belgian comics related. I loved the strange atmosphere, things like the "Gauss-Foetus" at the upper left corner were unsettling and puzzling at the same time. EXXOS made some really thematically messed-up games, but that made me like them even more. I mean, who comes up with fictional developers like "Arbeit von Spacekraft" ? Recommended.
