I appreciate it’s free to play, but I couldn’t understand the excitement about this game. It was nice that there were some video clips to accompany the game, but it felt a far stretch from capturing the feel of being in a proper escape room (which other remote games - both avatar and non-avatar - have managed to achieve much better).

Played: 5/19/19 Team size: 2 Time taken: 15 min Outcome: Successful escape!

Fun, silly, nice integrated hint system, puzzles were not especially difficult but enjoyable and well executed.

Can't really complain given it is free but really just a game taster for those wondering about online digital ER experiences - completed in 9 minutes

Reviews by escape room review sites

McDee is one of many short games in this list where each screen shows you a puzzle, and entering the solution unlocks the next one. Of the games in that style, this one might be my favourite.
If you're looking for a game to dip your toes into the water of virtual escape rooms, look no further! The Disappearance of DJ McDee is a great way to try out the format before committing to Clue Cracker’s paid games (which are also highly enjoyable.) And yes, the song is really catchy

Do stay for the full concert at the end by DJ McDee, it just might make you get up and boogie a little!

All-in-all, a well thought out, simple, free online game with fun characters, which is brilliant for first timers and those wanting to get a quick escape room fix!
