A pixel-art adventure game with survival touches about a circus in the 1920s. A story full of mysteries, tragedies and pain.

Story

The story is inspired by the freak circuses that used to be seen in the 20s of the last century.

According to the story of the game, in 1921 the famous Vlad Circus caught fire in a catastrophe that left hundreds of deaths. The owner's brother was found guilty and executed in the electric chair. Following the tragedy, the circus troupe was disbanded. Eight years later, the group of grotesque characters go on a date with the aim of re-founding it.

Accompanying gorgeous pixel art and dynamic lighting, the game boasts tremendous sound. From the clock of a clock to the thunder of an endless storm (the weather is also dynamically generated), it is pure pleasure for the senses.
