Content of the game:
The storyline will be based on Leucosia, a siren and one of the daughters of Acheloos and Melpomene and its name translates as "White State" or city of White Gods.
Nicosia is internationally known not by its Greek name, but by the Italian-French Nicosia (Nicosie). In ancient times the city was one of the ancient kingdoms of Cyprus. In recent times the name was changed to Kallinikisi and then to Lefkothea, Lefkosia and Nicosia. The Frankish conquerors, for inexplicable reasons, after passing through the area wrote about "Civitas Nicosie" hence the English Nicosia, as the Cypriot capital is known throughout the world.
Through this escape game, you will learn about the Myth of Leucosia and the history of the city of Nicosia.
