For a click-and-play game this game has a lot of quirky charm.  The way multiple players can step on each other's toes is perhaps not the best thing to have simulated, though.

The premise of Prototype is that while applying for a job at an escape room company you get stuck in their room... meaning that yes, this is a (digital) escape room where the goal is to escape from the escape room.
This is a digital point-n-click game, and in appearance and play style it’s closely related to the Flash-based digital escape games that were one of the original inspirations for physical escape rooms. You have different screens corresponding to different viewing angles within the ro...
If you’re looking for a light-hearted point-and-click escape room then they probably don’t come much more light-hearted than Edaqa’s room: Prototype. It kept us occupied and entertained for around 50 minutes and managed to provide puzzles we hadn’t seen before

The storyline is very unique (and a bit meta) as you are trapped in the Escape Room that you are interviewing to run as a GM! Wendy has hired you and left you in charge, when you unfortunately get locked in. As a GM in training, this isn’t exactly the best start to your newly chosen career path… Surely the golden rule of GM’ing is ‘don’t lose track of the keys?!’

The tables are turned and we become games masters of a new escape room. But a mishap causes us to get trapped inside it!
