Zen Studios and Sabre Interactive have announced a new tactical RPG, the Circus Electrique. It will be available on Switch and other platforms in 2022.
Set in Victorian steampunk London, this turn-based case is described as “part of story-driven RPG, tactics, and circus management.” Here’s an explanation of what you can expect:
When the daily Londoners turn into a mysteriously vicious murderer, only the circus strongman, fireblower, clown and other performers lineup has the unique talent needed to save the city.
Throughout tactical turn-based battles, these improbable heroes get in the way, not to mention Bobby, the British sailors, the aggressive Poshgirl, and the occasional menacing Pantomime and Robobear. Face other Victorian archetypes that are. The game’s innovative devoted morale system influences the character’s performance not only in combat, but also in real-life circus shows, and is faithfully managed during heroic excursions through six vast districts.
