The scientists have developed a machine that shifts the rules of physics- but not to worry, there were no dreaded mathematical challenges or periodic tables of elements in this game.Without giving away any of the in-game mechanics, some things that would be considered a clever magic trick if they were performed in an in-person game were all executed with precision, without any lag and made the overall experience more of a magical one than a science lab would have lead us to believe!

The puzzles are really clever and very different and require a lot of creative out-of-the-box thinking. The game has humorous elements that were really appreciated. The format of the game is split screen with one half being the POV cam and the other half the fixed cam on the mission objectives.

Despite the game being operated from Japan, the connection speed was good at all times and we did not experience any lag. The game hostess did a tremendous job.

We’re actually intrigued by the fact that the game title contains Remote version- we can’t imagine how this game would work as an in-person game. It seems to have been designed to fully take advantage of the fact that the players are not physically in the room, thus allowing the laws of physics to temporarily change. Therefore, the experience of an avatar game was well-rounded and the game did not just feel “close enough” to an in-person game but rather a step towards a dedicated new format that lends itself to being played exclusively remotely- an exciting new idea and a definite recommendation from us!
