DEVELOPED BY Lovable Hat Cult “It’s a game about this little something that always seems to be missing…a better job, a nicer place to live, an ideal relationship… We wanted to tell a story of self-discovery in a fun, universal and relatable way. We probably also wanted to answer our own questions: would the Circle find what it was looking for? Or how would it all end?” – Andrea & Patrick from the Copenhagen-based studio. PUBLISHED BY Nakana.io “We gather games that share a strong experience to remember. We hope you’ll enjoy the sweet and tasteful food for thought served by Journey of the Broken Circle!” – Mikaël Bourget, founder of the publishing label.
