Player Comments

Maybe I didn't give this game enough credit in my first review. Ever since I played this, it's been growing on me and sticking in my head.

Prometheus Academy is a story about superpowers. Specifically, a superpower school. But what could've been another, generic, Sky High clone instead turned out to be one of the best games on this site. You see, Prometheus Academy isn't a school for heroes... it's a school for villains.

You play as Mia, a young girl who had her family massacred by an explosion. An explosion that could've been prevented if the Crimson Cape, the flying brick archetype of the story, would've been the tiniest bit more careful.

After being recruited into Prometheus Academy, you get a badass cyborg arm and eye to replace the ones you lost. At this point, the game takes on a rather 'unique' school dynamic. Every student is cussing, swearing, and beating the shit out of each other in some way or another.

The game becomes very much linear at this point, which was an understandable disappointment. The story transitions into picking groups of classes, picking the choices that obviously correspond with what you would've learned in those classes, and enjoying an ending.

That's where Steve's writing shines the most, though. Each ending is thrilling in its own right. Mia doesn't feel empty or jump for joy after killing the Crimson Cape, she just feels... satisfied. Just satisfied. That's when you realize she either let go of her family a long time ago, or didn't ever love them in the first place.

Either way, Mia just wanted to get away with killing the city's greatest hero. And that, is fucking awesome.

It had emotion and hardships, in most stories they will seem like they forget the bad things in the world. This story has dead families, foster homes, and well being kidnapped, but she liked it in the end! I think this is a story to be inspired by and will be remembered by me when I think nothing could get worse and things will never change, but they will!

Excellent story! I've gone through pretty much all the story options — including some of the more lemony ones which I skipped over. Either way, the writing is exemplary, with very few grammatical errors (that I could see). A Sequel to this would be highly enjoyable.

It took me awhile, but when I finally got to an ending that wasn’t dying or getting my memory wiped(ending: man) it was totally worth it! Beautifully written story of blind revenge.
