Escape Stations – Prometheus
Game Date: 23/08/2020
Team: Amy & Ian
Prometheus started off in a building site! With great theming that had all of the staples of a building site but without the dirt and grim! Wondeful themeing in the first half of the game that was immersive yet never complicated things with its decor. This theming continued on throughout the game, with the discovery of the temple leading us to a more abandoned, rustic feeling in its design (but still it’s clear this room has been built with passion)
The space has cleverly been converted from its old life as a greek restraunt and uses this to its advantage, keeping some of the original features, giving the room plenty of charm!
A game that swooped between open and linear with a good arrangement of puzzles, bridging the game between mental and physical very nicely. A good, blanced game, with word, logic, observation, teamwork, code-breaking, a little bit of searching and physical puzzles making up the game play.
All the puzzles were perfectly logical and the all had lovely Ah-ha moments, and there was something for everyone in this room. The puzzles were so playable, and quite strong.
Signposting was wonderfully subtle! With enough signposting to guide us but not too obvious. The best kind!
Flow was wonderful, with us seamlessley moving through the game at all points, there were no sticky points or tedious links to be made that would have slowed us down somewhat.
A lovely, lovely game that I would reccomend to anyone looking for either something with a unique theme, and newbies, it’s a great “first” room, for enthusiasts, you’ll appreciate the skilled game design and smooth flow. Another great addition to the Nottingham Escape Room Scene
Clues were delivered via a screen
Tom was our gamehost, who delivered a good brief with gusto, and perfectly timed nudges throughout the hour.
Escape Stations was clean and spotless, there was handsanitizer and guests are required to wear masks at all times. We felt very safe as we were the only guests on site as Escape Stations only has one room.
Did we escape?
Yes, in about 40 minutes.
