Of all of the games that we played in Greece, Cosmos 05 Death in Space felt like a hybrid of Greek escape room style blended with influences from other parts of the world.
As with other Greek games, it was intensely story-driven with a rich world. At the same time, it was more compact and decidedly more puzzle-focused than every other escape room that we played in Athens.
By and large, this was a polished experience. However, the puzzles could have benefited from deeper integration into the already beautiful set.
Not only do I recommend Cosmos 05 Death in Space, but I think that this would be a good starting game for an escape room adventure in Athens.
