to South of the circle It was love at first sight. We were immediately drawn to the game’s narrative and artistic sensibility. South of the circle focuses heavily on high-quality, cinema-inspired storytelling, which makes it a bit different from our previous titles. We firmly believe that once players immerse themselves in the gripping and emotionally charged story, they will immediately understand why we included the title in our portfolio. And we’re delighted to be working with State of Play, having had our eyes on the talented studio for a long time.
