We have an important update to share about Vicious Circle. Starting right now, the base game and Founder’s Pack for Vicious Circle are free to play. This also means any new content created up until this point will be released free of charge as well. New content includes more Legendary Skins, character missions, and Cosmic Chaos effects. As an added bonus, for our last update we’re adding a brand new monster, Sheldon the Crab, to antagonize our Circle Mercs.
If you purchased the game or the Founder’s Pack, we will be issuing refunds back through the original platform where the game was purchased. If you bought a copy of the game through the Rooster Teeth Store, please contact our support team here https://support.roosterteeth.com/hc/en-us/requests/new. For Steam purchases, please go here https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6695-QIKM-7966&l= to request your refund.
Why is Vicious Circle going Free to Play? In short, the game didn’t succeed. We came together on a super creative ambitious new project, put our hearts into it, did our best to support it, and it didn’t work out, and that’s okay. Not every idea we have will be a success. We have to fail to find success. Servers will remain up because we made a game and we want the community to still have a chance to play it. We don’t want price to get in the way. We remain proud of the work that was put into the game and want as many people to have the chance to experience it as possible.
Regarding the future of the games under our umbrella, we are still able to address bugs and add fixes to Vicious Circle and RWBY: Grimm Eclipse; however, neither game will be receiving future content updates. Additionally, Bendy and the Ink Machine and RWBY Deckbuilding Game will be unsupported for the foreseeable future.
We’re thankful to everyone who worked on and supported this project and to everyone in the community who gave it a chance. Though this project is coming to a close, we’re not done trying new things. We want to do right by the community and make content that really connects with you all. Your feedback is invaluable. Don’t ever stop telling us what you want. Thank you.
