South of the Circle is now out on PC and Consoles – Release Trailer
South of the Circle is a narrative adventure, telling the story of Peter, a Cambridge academic who finds himself fighting for survival in Antarctica during the 1960’s Cold War. Peter flashes back to his life at the university and his relationship with a fellow lecturer, Clara.
Nominated for an Apple Design Award and at the DICE Awards, South of the Circle is a unique experience about memory, survival, and the consequences of not dealing with the past. As Peter battles against the harsh conditions and his attempts to escape the ice become more desperate, the lines between his past and present begin to blur.
State of Play’s lovingly crafted South of the Circle is founded upon years of research including a trip to Antartica and brings a unique level of depth to mobile. The game uses full 3D motion capture to achieve emotional realism from its cast – who are drawn from the likes of multi-Oscar winning Bohemian Rhapsody (Gwilym Lee), The Woman in White (Olivia Vinall), The Crown (Richard Goulding), Game of Thrones (Anton Lesser), Chernobyl (Adrian Rawlins) and Downton Abbey (Michael Fox).
