About This Game


Carnaval Simulator is an indie tycoon/simulator game where you build, design and manage stunning parade floats. Inspired by real-world celebrations like Mardi Gras, the Carnival of Venice, Burgundian Carnival and more. In this parade tycoon, you create your own parades in singleplayer and multiplayer.


Build, design and manage your own parade float. Add, resize, rotate and recolor props, adding more carts and much more. Eventually put these props into motion to amaze the public.


Drive your master piece through the streets and collect your results. Try to finish first as you compete against others for victory.


Connect and play with each other up to 8 players. Everyone creates their own parade float for the parade. In the end, you all rate each other's creations. The person with the most points wins!


Customize your very own light shows with various options at your disposal such as creating light groups, syncing to music, dimming and much more. Inspired by real life electrical parades.


Walk around into the crowd and on the float to experience the parade in first person mode like you would in real life.


Earn experience and level up to unlock more props and features for crafting bigger and more advanced parade floats.
