Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Chamber Of The Sci-Mutant Priestess casts you as Raven, a young "Tuner" (psionic mutant), working for the Tuner Netwerk. One day, while out on assignment with his friend Sci Fi, he witnesses the massacre of a "Normal" village, by a group of Protozorqs (physical mutants). Raven and Sci Fi disobey their instructions from the Netwerk, and fight back against the Protozorqs. In the ensuing struggle, Sci Fi is captured and taken back to the Protozorqs' mountain temple. Raven vows to save her, and so gets himself captured, too. As the game starts, Raven is a prisoner in the crazy Protozorq temple, where something sinister and utterly insane seems about to happen. Apparently, Raven has to go through five ordeals, to become a "Divo" (a Messenger Of The New Solution). For each ordeal he completes, he receives a Vort skull. Can you complete the five ordeals, save Sci Fi and destroy the fiendish Protozorq plot, in time? Luckily, you have a great array of amazing psionic powers to help you, and a neat point-and-click interface, in this unique graphic adventure.
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.
