About South of the Circle
A narrative adventure game by the BAFTA winning studio State of Play.
A crashed aircraft, tail to the sky.
Cambridge academic Peter stumbles from the wreckage in search of help, fighting the cold. As his attempts to escape the ice grow more desperate, the lines between his past and present begin to blur.
