In South of the Circle, you follow the story of Peter. Tangled in life-defining choices and torn between pursuing either career or true love, he finds himself in the middle of behind-the-scenes strife between military powers. Set in a Cold War reality, the game is defined by its story, stretching between past and present as well as its notable minimalist visual aesthetic.

The game also boasts some well-known voice actors, including Gwilym Lee (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), Olivia Vinall (“The Woman in White”), Richard Goulding (“The Crown”), Anton Lesser (“Game of Thrones”), Adrian Rawlins (“Chernobyl”), and Michael Fox (“Downton Abbey”).

Marek Ziemak, External Development Director at 11 bit studios had this to say about the announcement

South of the Circle is one of those love-at-first-sight things. The game’s narrative and artistic sensitivity immediately captivated us. It’s heavily-focused on storytelling inspired by world-class cinema, which makes it a bit different from our previous titles. Once players experience its instantaneously engaging, emotion-packed narrative, we’re convinced they’ll understand why we wanted to have it in our publishing portfolio. And we’re thrilled to be able to start working with State of Play since it’s a studio that has been on our radar for a long time.
