Walking in Circles has always been esoteric. Walking in Circles does not pull you along by the nose, but version 2.0 adds the "walkie accomplishments" menu. A series of ten locked milestones, the "walkie accomplishments" menu gives the walkie an at least abstract idea of how completely they have explored the world. In a recent study of nearly 25,000 walkies, only 3 unlocked all ten accomplishments, or .012%.
"One of my gripes with all games of this genre ['escape the room'] is a cliche complaint with a cliche game mechanic: they need to think outside the box.. Walking In Circles is not only a rare example of this.. but it also accomplishes it spectacularly well.." -Tom Fronczak, Destructoid
