The Magic Circle is a game about making games, profiling the troubled development team of a failed fantasy world and enabling the player to take development into their own hands. That's a boring way of saying: You can reprogram the inhabitants of The Magic Circle, turning them into flying, fire-spewing turtles or sentient, laser-equipped rocks. You can build an army of zombies, or turn a mushroom into a teleportation pad. You can really, truly make a mess of things.

Check out the Overview above to see some of the unorthodox puzzle solutions we whip up to The Magic Circle's various riddles, and watch our descent into madness as our power grows unchecked.
