    Quarantine Circular is another brilliantly written game that will have you taking up different mind sets to get through it. It is at times charming, upsetting and inspiring and will have you playing it through to it's conclusion in one sitting without you realising.

    It is a beautifully crafted game and, at $5.99 USD (current $4.79 to celebrate its release), is well worth every cent. It presents a compelling scenario for thought, infectious to the last moment.

    There are a few issues like the disconnect between the player and the characters or the omission of any challenge, but the story and the way it is told is done exceptionally well. Quarantine Circular is worth every minute of your time.

    Quarantine Circular, while lacking the same focus as Subsurface Circular, is another engaging untangling of science fiction concepts with interesting characters, and it leaves you waiting for the next instalment.

    An absorbing reminder of the power of words and how we wield them. [Aug 2018, p.114]

    Quarantine Circular is a mostly well-written sci-fi tale that doesn't succumb to tired tropes or obvious plot contrivances to draw you in. Instead it uses its limited working space to deliver a captivating tale about human nature and our theoretical place within the universe.

    An engaging, if brief, narrative adventure. [July 2018, p.84]
