The Amazing American Circus

Klabater have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: The Amazing American Circus, which blends RPG, tycoon, and card gameplay. It will be released in 2021 in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features:

The Amazing American Circus brings a unique blend of the RPG, tycoon, and a card game. Build a strong deck of cards, improve the individual stats of your troupe, and manage your own circus camp. As a circus owner, you will hire unique and exotic artists, each of them offering a new set of cards that you will use during shows. In this strange company, you will explore the United States full of colorful characters and local folklore. Write your own story, build a circus empire, and experience all the glory, beauty – and danger! – of the turn of the 20th century.

The Amazing American Circus tells the story of one of the most iconic forms of entertainment in American history. The USA during the Gilded Age is a turbulent place. On the East Coast spring up modern metropolises, while on the other side of the country cowboys and robber barons fight for their place in the upcoming new era. This is the place where you will have to write your own story and build your circus empire. You take the role of an impoverished owner of a traveling Circus you inherited from your father. Through your personal and multithreaded story, The Amazing American Circus reveals mysteries behind a uniquely American form of entertainment, full of bizarre folklore, brutal crime, and social inequality.

TRAVEL ACROSS THE USA. The United States was a new, developing country with settlers steadily pushing the American frontier… To reach their public at the time, showmen had little choice but to travel light and fast. You will visit legendary places and meet iconic characters being a part of the American circus heritage. You will plan your trip and adapt your artistic offer to different groups of viewers. The Amazing American Circus is a classic ‘travel’ game. Emerge from the Wild West and reach the progressive East Cost while seeking for glory.

ENTERTAIN THE AUDIENCE. Deliver a perfect show in a special card duel between you and the audience. Their boredom is your enemy and your performances and tricks are the best weapons. Choose your cards wisely and try to figure out the mood of the crowd. What’s attractive in the deep South won’t necessarily work in the industrialized North!

HIRE YOUR OWN TROUPE. As an owner of a traveling Circus, you desperately need to look for new troupe members while competing with other circuses. You will gather an exotic crew of strange individuals who will perform for you, but can you deliver the best shows around while traveling from coast to coast? And remember, you will not become a Circus giant with a bunch of few selected performers. You will constantly have to replace entertainers to make your show attractive for different audiences.

RPG, A CARD GAME, AND A TYCOON! The Amazing American Circus brings a unique blend of the RPG, tycoon, and a card game. Build a strong deck of cards, improve the individual stats of your troupe, and manage your own circus camp.

NARRATIVE DIME-NOVEL GAME. Unique story, love affairs, and hateful enemies, magnificent shows with challenging audiences and quests, all of this wrapped up in a writing style of the dime novels from the turn of the 20th century – that’s what The Amazing American Circus offers.

  • Become a legend! Save a run-down circus, gather a troupe of performers, and dare to defy the greatest showman on earth – P.T Barnum himself.
  • Indulge in a dramatic story set in the turbulent times of the Industrial Revolution and the dusk of the Wild West era, and dive into the wonderful and grim world of the American folklore.
  • Rediscover the spirit of dime-novels! Unravel incredible stories and dialogues recreating the style of the classic tall-tales from the past.
  • 100+ real historical and legendary characters from the verge of the 19th and 20th century to encounter, such as John D. Rockefeller, Susan B. Anthony, or Nikola Tesla…
  • Gather a group of dandy artists and twisted individuals, each with their own story to tell, and venture on a journey across the 19th century the United States.
  • Experience an epic soundtrack inspired by the classic circus music.

The Amazing American Circus (Switch – eShop) comes out in 2021 in Europe and North America.
