OverviewOverview

Journey of the Broken Circle is a rolling and jumping game about looking for a life partner. You play as a simple circle with a piece missing. As you progress by making jumps and solving puzzles, you meet partners who slot in specific abilities and offer different personalities to journey with. It's a game about being incomplete and falling in love.

It's a game that uses the interactions and characters you meet to evoke the emotions of loneliness and desire for companionship. The result is a surprisingly deep story where you soon start rooting for your faceless circular character.

The simple visuals and quality of the writing make this more than a novelty. It's a game that examines angst, anxiety and impermanence. It's intelligent use of minimal colour creates calming and beautiful spaces to explore.
