But it's still a tale worth giving the little time it asks of you, if only to be entertained by its intriguing characters and inspired by their existential pondering. 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.
The complexities of this tale come from the decisions you’ll make, questioning your beliefs after every line of dialogue. 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.
That Quarantine Circular is both short but manages to give you reason to explore all its possibilities is impressive, and you do feel you get to know everyone involved, even if you don't like all of them. It's an exploration of conversation, and you come away with the feeling that conversation is preferable to aggression, but even in that case humans may not have that much to recommend them. Human beings: the hot mess of the universe.
