Prism Break is a real-time cooperative Cyberpunk-themed hacking game where each player is only seeing limited information. The goal is to create a maze out of tiles that allows a viable path that visits all four corners of the board before a ten-minute timer expires. However, each tile may have walls, traps, or other special effects (some beneficial, some dangerous). Players must place the tiles carefully so as not to trap themselves and leave no way out.
The three-player team wears red, green, and blue glasses, respectively (these can fit loosely over normal glasses for players who wear them). Each player can only see game information that is of their color, so all three players are looking at the same board and same tiles but seeing different things. They can share information freely to piece together the effects of each tile, but the clock is ticking!
If present, a fourth player wears no glasses and can see everything. Their job is to traverse the maze being built by their partners in real time… but their communication with the rest of their team is restricted, so they must sometimes deal with the terrible decisions their teammates are making. A fifth player can be added to represent active opposition, the head of security who places additional obstacles in an attempt to foil the team.
Because of the nature of the color filters used in this game, it can be played by people with colorblindness or color deficiency.
