The Magic Circle: Development Hell
17 August, 2015

Have a look at The Magic Circle – a game from former BioShock and Dishonored devs. They made a project about building games. And its hilarious.

Basically it’s a very ironic tale of the development hell. You play as a tester, who needs to finish the bigger than life game and learn a bit about its creation. Taking into account the background of Question studio employees, you definitely need to check this game (in case you’ve missed it).

The Magic Circle, indiedev, gamedev, BioShock, Dishonored, Steam,

You are the protagonist of an unfinished 1st person fantasy game, trapped in development hell. The designers (played by James Urbaniak, Ashly Burch, and Karen Dyer) are god-like, but so indecisive that they’ve given you no powers whatsoever. With the help of a mysterious disembodied voice (Stephen Russell) you must seize the tools of game development 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. Trap the designers’ creations, steal their behaviors, and re-mix them to explore and master this world-in-progress. Can you out-think the game gods? Can you ship The Magic Circle from inside it?

From The Magic Circle Steam page description.

There’s also a nice episode of Erran’t Signal devoted to this game.
