Developer Lovable Hat Cults have revealed that their charmingly whimsical platforming adventure Journey of the Broken Circle is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PC on September 18th. Best of all, anyone who owns any release by publisher nakana.io on the Nintendo Switch can grab the game for free during its first three days after release, so it may be worth checking your library of games to see if you’re entitled to a freebie!
Check out the game’s latest trailer down below:
Journey of the Broken Circle is a narrative-driven puzzle platformer about an incomplete circle yearning to become whole. As it rolls through a wondrous and hazardous land, it encounters a series of other shapes with unique personalities and skills that it uses to fill the hole left in its body. Each shape offers a unique mechanic, helping our pie-shaped person surmount obstacles and find inner peace.
As with all relationships, each character Broken Circle intermingles with offers it unique properties. Some will allow it to float into the heavens, others will cause it to cling onto surfaces, and some will cause it to tumble along with an extra spring in its step. Not all relationships were made to last however, so don’t get too attached!
“We wanted to make a game that reflected the experience of being human. So we made a game about a limbless circle. But a very human circle!” said Writer, Andrea Brasch. “We all feel insecure at times, and our relationships with others simultaneously lift us, but can also make us feel incomplete on our own. That’s never been more true than it is right now, so if our game can help people through this trying time, we know it will have been worth it.”
Journey of the Broken Circle is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PC on September 18th 2020. Find out more on the official website through this link.
