What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Death Circus is still under development and we want to include and incorporate the feedback and ideas of our Steam audience in the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“2-3 Months”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Voice acting, level design, changes in gameplay, controller support, etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The basic idea of the game is ready and playable. There are missing cutscenes, objectives, voices, and some other features that we'd like to add later. But for now, you can explore the map, interact with the objectives, interact with the killer himself, and of course get killed. The menu is in a very basic status and there will be more options and controls added to it.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will be free”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'd like to try and include your ideas in the game and make it an enjoyable horror experience for our Steam community. Of course, you'll be credited if we pick your idea!”

About This Game

Flyers everywhere. "New circus in town! Clowns, exotic animals, and things you have never seen before! Grab your ticket and enjoy the fun!"
"I've been dying to go to a circus! I'm pretty sure my mom wouldn't let me... She's such a killjoy... Maybe she doesn't notice if I sneak out at night! I really wanna watch animals and acrobats and I have enough money to buy a ticket!"


You'll be playing as a young girl who snuck out at night to go to the circus, unaware that the creepy clown might actually be a serial killer, waiting for his next victim. After you enter, you'll find out about the true identity of the clown and will have to do whatever it takes to get out of there before you get butchered like his other victims or end up as a feast for the circus animals.


Death Circus is a short FPS horror-themed RPG game / experience about a young girl and a clown serial killer. It's a hide and seek style game in which you'll be tasked with different objectives and have to complete them in order to get closer to freedom. All you have to do is not to get murdered as you do so. The current state of the game contains the base gameplay, objectives, the map, the complete AI, and some cutscenes. The rest of the features will be added later as we're trying to incorporate the Steam community's feedback and suggestions into the game.


Death Circus is in early access so there might be bugs and mechanics that don't work properly yet. We encourage you to share your feedback and ideas with us on the discussion board or send us an email.

We hope you'd enjoy your early access experience!
