If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
Normally a low-tech room like this wouldn't get much, but the charisma and smoothness of the host, coupled with many humorous touches, gives this two extra stars than it would otherwise deserve.
A scrappy lo-fi game that nevertheless had some extremely fun moments and clever puzzles. Our GM/avatar really made the experience immersive and memorable.
One of the more challenging online Escapes we have done, with a lot more red herrings than we've seen in other games. Definitely some challenging puzzles, with one that really stumped us (we got it with a small nudge). The GM was very engaging, although with the time being as tight as it was, his "idiot avatar" persona was a tad frustrating to me (not so much to my teammates who are more patient than I!). Nonetheless, a really fun experience, with some inventive elements that added to the realism. Definitely recommended.

We really liked how the game started as it didn't feel like we were going to play a remote escape room. We were put in a real situation where we were sent to help a captured agent. This was the only remote room so far that made me feel like I was part of the avatar (like a voice inside his head).
Agent November VIRTUAL X-CAPER is a really effective concept for a simple remote escape room for the price and the way it was implemented. VIRTUAL X-CAPER is a wonderful example of how the role of the avatar can turn a rather low budget room into a well-rounded experience.
Practically flawless! How fitting that it was my final escape room experience of 2020? I can’t think of a more appropriate way to hurl oneself into the bold new 2021 than by saving Agent November’s life and doing so with a laugh, a “wow that’s good!” and more than anything, with friends.
