An interactive website for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus lets fans dive into a transmedia and interactive experience that redefines the typical movie site or portal. Working closely with Microsoft, the Project Prometheus Training Center and each engagement contained within has been built in HTML5 and works on modern browsers, such as Google Chrome and Safari, but the experience works best on Internet Explorer 9. Users begin by logging into the Project Prometheus Training Center with Facebook or Twitter. A user’s score will then appear on a leaderboard that is updated in real-time throughout the day and in a way that can be compared with friends. 79,700 is the highest score possible across all tests. How high can you score
Most of the content wrapped up in the Project Prometheus Training Center is game based. The games range from puzzles and logic quizzes to reflex tests. In the “agility” test, for instance, users have to move their way through an obstacle course using the arrow keys on the keyboard to move left and right. In the “G-Force test,” users are tasked with keeping their mouse cursor in the center of a grid, despite the “G-Force effect” imposed by the browser. In the “spatial relations” test, users match Tetris-like pieces in the correct position in a limited amount of time. The most impressive game is the “pre-cortex” test, which is a 3D Rubik’s cube and logic puzzle with varying degrees of difficulty. This test is only available in IE 9.
