MEET THE LOCALS, PICK UP THE LINGO

A detective stationed on the Subsurface Circular investigates a series of disappearances among the citys robotic working class. Collect words and phrases, then use them in dialogue puzzles to uncover the world's secrets and determine its future.

Inspired by classic adventure games and modern dialogue systems, Bithell Games has created a single session story which respects your time and your intelligence.

=====

Subsurface Circular extracts maximum entertainment from limited resources through the admirable trick of great writing, excellent pacing, sparkling dialogue and bang-on story beats.
9/10 Polygon

There are plenty of twists and turns to the point that you can never quite grasp the whole story until its closing out.
4/5 GamesRadar

With a cast of well-realised characters, and a story that captivates from start-to-finish, Subsurface Circular's robot mystery will have your attention from the moment the train leaves the station.
8/10 VideoGamer

I loved this game for PC. 500mb though for a mobile text adventure? You guys should optimize a bit for mobile : )

It does, and I do like the graphics : ) I'm not sure if it's a mobile 500mb though worth of them.

It look me a little less than 2 hours on the PC. I would say I finished it in an hour and 45 or so. : )
