The Magic Circle is a game that has been stuck “in development hell for 20 years“. From what I understood, you can go ahead and “reprogram” some of the game elements to fit your taste (and of course to help you progress through the story).
I don’t know about you, but I find this idea very promising!
If you’re not sold yet, here’s an excerpt from the official announcement post:
The Magic Circle pokes fun at the many ways that games can go wrong, and offers you the power to solve puzzles like a game creator — by re-designing them. You play the hero of an unfinished fantasy RPG, waiting for your story to begin, and you’re getting sick of it.
