The Magic Circle is a dark comedy in which you play the hero of an unfinished fantasy RPG, and you must seize the power of game creation to release it from the inside.
You are the protagonist of an unfinished first-person fantasy game, trapped in development hell. The designers are god-like, but so indecisive that they’ve given you no powers whatsoever. With the help of a mysterious disembodied voice you must seize the tools of game development from these unworthy gods and uncover the darkly comical story as you go. With the help of a mysterious trickster (Stephen Russell) you must seize the powers of game creation from these unworthy ‘gods’, uncovering more of the darkly comic story as you go. Rather than traditional puzzles with a single solution, the incomplete state of each environment is a question that you answer in your own way. Explore, trap the designers’ creations, steal their behaviors, and re-mix them to master this world-in-progress.
The Magic Circle: Gold Edition releases tomorrow on PS4.
