The mind behind Thomas Was Alone and Subsurface Circular, Mike Bithell, has announced, and immediately released his next project. The follow up to Subsurface Circular, known as Quarantine Circular.
Much like its predecessor, Quarantine Circular is a text adventure title with a science fiction setting. The game only has a run time of a couple of hours, and it pretty cheap for it (costs £4.79), but this time the game includes multiple endings and active characters to change up each run, which could turn the short runtime into something a bit longer should players explore their options.
While the runtime might sound like a turnoff to some, Bithell is adamant that there’s a place for shorter games on Steam thanks to feedback he’s seem from Subsurface Circular, where gamers reached out to him to express their joy there was a game they could digest quickly. The title remains at 95% recommended on Steam and with a very low return rate.
