Some mathematicians are invited by a mysterious host on the pretext of resolving a great enigma. Their pseudonyms: Fermat, Galois, Hilbert, Pascal i Oliva.
Guests get to solve puzzles. If they do not answer the questions, the walls move and the room shrinks pressed by four Poseidon hydraulic presses... !!!

The Spanish partners were very ambitious. They built a model of the room. When it came to designing the model, students got in touch with Luís Piedrahita, one of the film directors, in order to reveal some of the keys of the system.
Project was one of the six selected by the MediaLab-Prado in Madrid (2011) to be included in the interactive exhibition Playing with numbers in Spanish.
Spanish partners have made the game available on the Internet. The game is a lot of mathematical and logical puzzles. Can you solve them, too?
