Kairos Room Escape is the name of a new provider that opened its doors in Barcelona in 2020. Their first room, called Credo, last 90 minutes and is about faith and tradition. Our pilgrim community, consisting of five brothers and sisters, was the first English-speaking group to walk the winding path and try to unravel its many secrets.
The textual translation into English was flawless. A small audio part (which is probably not that easy) has not yet been adapted, which was not particularly dramatic. The greeting and the briefing by the person who received us “in character” was easy to understand. The intro was good, entertaining and quickly immersed us in the game.
The game, which is advertised for four to ten players, offers enough space and, above all, a lot of non-linear puzzles, so that there were five of us who were always busy enough without getting on our feet. However, I would advise against an even higher number of pilgrims, because it is not easy to follow all plot lines and to keep up to date. You just missed too much for my taste.
The general atmosphere is good, the decoration detailed and fitting. The game flow was continuous and there were no major “hangers”. The puzzles – many technical, but also mechanical components – a varied mix with different levels of difficulty, but always well suited to the topic.
With 59 minutes we needed about 2/3 of the game time, but we were five experienced escapers and such fast times, we were told, would be rather an exception. Credo is a successful debut room by Kairos, which apparently are already planning further projects, that we can recommend.
