7 Days a Skeptic is the second of four horror adventure games in the award-winning Chzo Mythos series from Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw.


The player takes on the role Jonathan Somerset, a psychological counselor who is one of six members of the crew of the EFS Mephistopheles, a small scout ship on its maiden voyage through deep space. The crew intercept an object floating through space, and when they take it aboard they find it not to be a sign of alien life but just an old metal locker, on which a stern warning is described never to disturb the contents. Over the next few days, strange happenings and stranger disappearances take place, and Somerset attempts to determine the nature of the dark intelligence behind it all.

Gameplay is a point-and click adventure verb system (Walk, Talk, Look, Interact).
