A tale of falling in and out of love, the Journey of the Broken Circle follows the most outstanding voyage of an incomplete Circle seeking fulfillment. What was once a connection between a pie-shaped individual and a lovable item is now a memory, for the Circle must roll through various lands and puzzles in this tale of life and existentialism after being separated by his love in the clouds.
Each encounter with the world’s living shapes offers new mechanics for the player to utilize in this 4-5 hour narrative-driven indie title. This “whimsical” platformer embraces the themes of self-discovery and inner peace, in a story that players could find to be relatable – despite the protagonist looking almost exactly like Pac-Man.
The release trailer showcases fantastic music that backs up the high-flying Circle going from platform to platform throughout this colorful experience. For just under a minute, we’re treated to some of the abilities the Circle can do. From adhesive-based skills to essentially flying across the map, each of the assembled skills are crucial to finding closure and renewal for the circular hero.
