Reviews

“For fans of indie deck-building games, American Circus is one for you. It takes inspiration from Slay The Spire - now available on Android - featuring cards that are used during combat. These will be used to make your circus troupe perform amazing tricks and fantastical feats that allow you to actually fight the audience.”
The Gamer

“I had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend the game to others once it’s released. I only experienced a small slice of what the final game will have to offer- there will be new locations to perform, more characters, different abilities to unlock, and much more. I look forward to its release, and if you’re interested in this game, make sure to add it to your wishlist on Steam!”
Gaming Cypher

“It's a big premise, and a little unusual—at first glance it looks like a blend of Hearthstone, Darkest Dungeon, and Where the Water Tastes Like Wine—but I think it also looks quite promising as a more narrative-focused take on CCGs.”

About This Game



Your worst fear is the audience’s indifference. Your best weapon is a dazzling amusement. Your artists are your army. Behold, the circus came to town!

In The Amazing American Circus, you’ll build a circus empire from scratch. Flesh and blood opponents, as well as characters known from the American folklore, will stand in your way to success. As a novice owner of a small and run-down circus, you’ll have to face giants of this industry, like Ringling Bros. and P.T. Barnum. Can you defeat them? The Amazing American Circus tells the story of the most iconic entertainment in American history. The USA, during the Gilded Age, is a turbulent place. On the East Coast springs up a modern metropolis, while in the west, cowboys and robber barons fight for their business. The new era is coming, and this is the last right moment for the circus to flourish!

This is a place and time where you will have to write your own story and build a circus empire. You take the role of an impoverished owner of a traveling Circus. 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 as it depicts a story of a struggle between a newcomer and industry giants.

Explore 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 real historical characters being a part of the American circus heritage. You will plan your trip and adapt your artistic offer to different groups of spectators in a constant struggle to provide hard-working Americans with the entertainment they deserve! The Amazing American Circus is a classic ‘travel’ game. Emerge from the West and reach the progressive North East while seeking fame, glory, and fortune.

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!

Gather a unique Troupe!


As the traveling Circus owner, 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 continuously have to replace entertainers to make your show attractive to different audiences.

Manage and Expand your Circus Camp!


The Amazing American Circus brings a unique blend of RPG, tycoon, and a card game. Build a strong deck of cards, improve your troupe’s stats, and manage your circus camp. Unlock new wagons and gain access to new skills, buffs, and items.

Unique story 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.
