“Ok cool, the Avatar is inputing the code in the keypad, and the keypad is making the usual beeps. …wait, is the Avatar making those beep sounds?”

Agent November was captured, as he was searching for the infamous jewel thief, Robyn Yew, who is a part of a large crime organization, lead by Marty Orri.
We have roughly 60 minutes to help Agent November escape! We do so by connecting to special gadgets, that allow us to look through his eyes, and hear through his ears.
Are we up to the mission?

From roughly 10 seconds into the game, one thing is clear – the creator of this game is either a genius, or completley mental. I, personally, believe the former.
This game is not a very technological game. The Avatar even makes the noises to simulate some of the tech.
It was created especially for remote play, and is located in what I believe is the Avatar’s office.
However, this game simply works. It combined huge amount of humor, wit, wordplay, and really fun puzzles, that all have their twists and specialities.
In addition, just like in video games, in this game you can collect acheivements, for doing… well, for doing unexpected things.
For me, this was easily one of my top-3 favorite remote games to date.
From the moment the game begins (literally, event the first few seconds are brilliant), and up until the last moment, I was always smiling, as we were trying to solve puzzles, earn acheivements, and find hidden easter eggs, which just like every other aspect of the game, are completley ridiculous. In the best of ways.
