The May 2018 PC release Quarantine Circular has just been made available on the Switch eShop following an announcement by the game's creator Mike Bithell during the 'Kinda Funny Video Game Showcase' on Twitch.
Bithell Games was previously responsible for Thomas Was Alone and Subsurface Circular. Quarantine Circular is a mature sci-fi text-based adventure set in the middle of a world-ending pandemic, as a group of scientists discover the galaxy has been watching them. The title is described as a "one-sitting game" for adults in search of a new world to discover. Here's a bit more about it from the game's Steam page:
Quarantine Circular is about on a par with the average network TV science fiction episode in its depiction of mature themes and gore. We like to think of it as ‘adult’ in the sense that it focuses on themes of humanity and philosophy, not because of any grossness or sexiness.
It's also worth noting the title is its own self-contained story and does not require players to experience Subsurface Circular beforehand - a game released earlier this year on the Switch eShop.
Take a look at the trailer above and tell us if you're in the mood for a text-based adventure on the Switch.

I enjoy a good text adventure, I'll give it a look.
Not enough grues 0/10
Subsurface Circular was a great story and I'll definitely give this a go. Nintendo should be setting up deals with smart devs like these and helping fund there games so they can take them to the next level.
Article doesn't mention it but the price is only $5.99 (4.79 for you british blokes) so it's definitely worth the money.
Instabuy. The last one was cool. Cheap and original. Mike Bithell is on Twitter and can often get insights into the dev world.
Nice, I played this on Steam as soon as it came out. Not as good as Subsurface imo but definitely worth a look.
I am not sure. Quarantine Circular sounds like the name of an antiviral drug used to treat an serious STD.
"Out now. Avoid Spoilers."
Love that bit!
Certainly gonna get this someday. Subsurface Circular was brilliant.
YEEESSS... I absolutely loved Subsurface Circular and was hoping Bithell's threats of "we'll port it to Switch ONLY if it does well enough on Steam" were just a threat. Or maybe it did that well. Either way, EGGCITE!!!
If physical, I might pickup to collect it.
This looks like a decent change of pace and a new genre for my Switch.
Subsurface Circular was interesting. Don't know if I'd do Quarantine Circular yet though. I'm backlog it for now.
