Relive the golden days of entertainment with The Amazing American Circus, a simulation game where you must build up your circus empire. 

Run a small, travelling circus throughout the Gilded Age of the United States, where you explore the underbelly of this American pastime, filled with bizarre folklore, brutal crime, social inequality, and fighting against the industry giant, P.T. Barnum himself!

Explore the whole of the U.S, planning your trip as you hope to deliver a perfect show to your audience. Use a special card duel mechanic to fight off the boredom, but use your cards wisely to try and figure out the mood of the crowd, all the while recruiting characters and acts for your show.

The Amazing American Circus brings a unique blend of RPG, tycoon, and a card game, and will be available for the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch.
