Circus Electrique

Publisher Saber Interactive and developer Zen Studios today unveiled Circus Electrique, a game that features a mix of story-driven RPG, tactics, and circus management gameplay presented with a steampunk twist. It’s currently planned for 2022.

Here’s an overview of the game’s premise:

When everyday Londoners mysteriously turn into vicious killers, only the circus’ lineup of Strongmen, Fire Blowers, Clowns and other performers possess the unique talents necessary to save the city.

Through tactical turn-based battles, these unlikely heroes face Bobbies, British Sailors gone bad, aggressive Posh Girls, and other Victorian-era archetypes stand in their way – not to mention the occasional menacing Mime or Robobear.

The game’s innovative Devotion morale system affects characters’ performance not only in battles, but also for actual circus shows, dutifully managed between heroic jaunts through six sprawling districts.

Circus Electrique has 14 playable archetypes, including Strongmen, Fire Blowers, Escape Artists, Clowns, and other classic circus performers. You’ll ultimately need to “rebuild the circus to its former greatness and beyond, recruiting and training the most talented performers coming in from all over the world.” Success of a show is determined by performers’ skill, chemistry with one another, and overall Devotion. Money is needed for Amelia’s quest as well as to keep everyone paid and happy.

We have a trailer for Circus Electrique below.
