Theme:

“Inspired by the myths of Ancient Greece, our first game invites explorers to uncover the mysterious of a what appears to be a dormant temple, but are there secrets to uncover?
We transport you to Greece where a hotel development has been halted allowing you and your crack team access to what you believe to be a site of cultural significance.
Can you use your surroundings and skill to gain entrance to the mountainside? Will you face and conquer trials set by the God’s or even Zeus himself? Kudos awaits the brave.”

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 is large enough for 5 players, and lighting was atmospheric, at sometimes being dim, rather than brightly lit but this was perfectly in theme and never impacted gameplay.

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!

Game Play:
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

Clue System:
Clues were delivered via a screen

Game Host:
Tom was our gamehost, who delivered a good brief with gusto, and perfectly timed nudges throughout the hour.

Covid Safety:
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.
