Circulous is an episodic mystery narrative puzzle game. In this first-person game you take on the persona of Amanda Trouser. You have just been let go from your job. After packing your things, you wonder what you are going to do with the rest of your life. How will you afford your apartment? On the subway ride home you see an add for a job opening at Circulous…it’s almost as if the ad was put there just for you! You apply, and you end up hired!

That is only the beginning of the story. Your work at Circulous is exciting, but soon you realize there may be more to this company than you’ve ever imagined. Corporate espionage, conspiracy theories and moral dilemmas lead you through challenging puzzles that will test your wits, your allegiances, and what you think you know about…everything.


This puzzle game pulls you in and makes it as immersive as possible. Scenes use parallax movement to make it feel like you are in Amanda’s world.
The opening scene (in which you are fired) uses story and humor to quickly place you in Amanda’s shoes.
Each scene is an animated environment that invites you to explore and notice things that may or may not be important to the story or puzzles.
The use of your phone (or iPad) is an intuitive way to keep you in the game but also make it feel as if you are truly using your device alongside the game and not just a gimmick. The OS feels like a true OS and makes the immersive nature of the game much more enjoyable.

What’s New

Version 1.1.3

Circulous Employees, those of you who were having difficulties with a certain set of "Spoked Symbols" may have been disappointed to discover that the hint for that puzzle was a clone of the Letter Blanks puzzle. No longer! We have solved that regrettable error, and those of you who were lost can find new direction. Speaking of "errors" in the Hints, the word "Arrow" in one of the hints was accidentally replaced with the word "Error." This has also been fixed.
Additionally, a small number of valued employees experienced crashes when rotating a bird coin, which should now be resolved.

As always, you can rest easy knowing that all Circulous employees responsible for these grave errors have been let go in our pursuit of eliminating all imperfections in both our software and the world.

Thanks for playing, and stay productive!

Fun, and challenging!

This game is charming and entertaining from the beginning. Dig the story, but really enjoy the puzzles. It’s not easy, but you will eventually figure it out. I finished the only part that’s released and I love it, and can’t wait for more!

A bit buggy but enjoyable

Good game to twist my brain with. So far the puzzles are more about observation of things that were shown earlier and crafty ways to use/look at them. Really like the different mechanics, they are surprising and fresh. Smalls things, like the screen stuck on one orientation even though it’s rotated, or the keyboard doesn’t go away after typing so it blocks the next puzzle, or some other minor inconsistent behavior within a puzzle, could get a bit annoying after a couple of force closes. Oh and the hints pages for the spokes puzzle is wrong, that should be a quick fix.

This Game is Soooooooo Addicting!!!

Okay, this game is really fun and SUPER ADDICTING. Like, if you get this game, you won’t be able to put it down until you’re done, honestly. I’ve never wrote a review on a game before, but I’ve gotta say, this is probably the best app game I’ve ever played! The gameplay is so captivating and fun, and I was interested the whole time. With some of the puzzles, I had to use the hints, but even then, I still enjoyed solving them! Thanks for making this game, and I’m excited for the update!!!!
