The magic circle, a term I have borrowed directly from game studies, is the invisible perimeter between everyday life and an experience where different rules of engagement are at play. Anthropologist call it the ritual frame and contemporary mystical practices call it the container. The magic circle describes the limits of both the formal rules of an experience and the informal norms that an experience allows for. It can literally feel like magic to be inside one thanks to the seemingly inexplicable shift in logic for how things happen and what is meaningful.

Battle of Survival
So, where were we?. It has been almost two years since we watched the Wall come tumbling down in Game of Thrones Sky Atlantic, Monday, 2am and 9pm. That vast and formidable border between the Seven Kingdoms and the icy reaches beyond Westeros had become the last thing separating the living and the dead. Since becoming the Three-Eyed Raven, he is actually something else: a powerful seer with the gnomic humour of a man who knows all the spoilers. Dany and Jon are still in the dark about one thing, though: the fact that they are blood relatives, which dooms the romance between aunt and nephew the true heir to the throne, remember to either a treasonous breakup, or, at the very least, an excruciatingly awkward conversation.
Enduring a permeant winter and fighting Lovecraftian monsters is just as difficult as it sounds in this new survival game, but is it any fun? Setting your game in the frozen wastes of a perpetual winter seems poor timing for a game coming out in the middle of spring. But as it happens the bleak, snow-covered landscapes are strangely reminiscent of the first few episodes of Game Of Thrones, further emphasising the fact that we really should have had a proper big budget adaptation by now. We mention these things not because they have any real relevance to Fade To Silence, but to give a hint as to how much our mind was wandering while playing it. Fade To Silence is the latest in a long line of survival games.
