Description

Can you make a game about life, love and existentialism? We believe we have just done that! In the ‘Journey Of The Broken Circle’ you dive into a beautiful universe, where a satisfactory gameplay, combined with a deep story that throws the main character into a self-discovering journey makes ‘Journey of the Broken Circle’ a rewarding and different kind of game.

By overcoming obstacles, meeting NPCs with different personalities and discovering new places, the Circle grows and develops as a character. It learns about the world and itself, and we, along with it.

In this beautiful, fun and intriguing game the broken Circle sets out on an existential journey to look for something to complete it. The game is easy to relate to, as we all, on one level or another, are looking for something to complete us.


Motivation:

We set out to do a game about that little something that always seem to be missing, be it a better job, a nicer place to live, or just the right partner. We were curious along the way: Would the Circle find what it was looking for? Or how would it all end ? Games that take their starting point in a story and not in a game mechanic, can sometimes be hard to make, but the ‘Journey Of The Broken Circle’ sort of made itself!

We made the game because we had an important story we wanted to tell - a universal story we feel many can relate to.

We obviously believe that games can be a medium to talk about so much more than shooting and strategy.
