Steampunkthemed circus RPG Circus Electric launches September 6th

Chris Baker, creative director at Zen Studios, posted more details on the new steampunk circus RPG Circus Electrique on the official PlayStation Blog this week, set to officially launch in a few months on September 6, 2022. See the announcement trailer below for more details on what you can expect from the RPG created by the Darkest Dungeon team.

“Around the end of 2019, a small group of creative minds at Zen Studios gave us the idea: “Let’s make an RPG set in a steampunk version of London where all your game characters are circus performers.” Almost everyone who read the presentation, including myself, reacted as I hope you did when they heard the premise: “What a crazy idea… I love it!” Just a few weeks before Circus Electrique’s release on September 6th, let me reflect on how it all came about and how this game is different from other RPGs…”

“The idea for the project, first named Circus Scandal, came about when the team members had just completed other Zen Studios RPGs such as the firstperson dungeon crawler Operencia: The Stolen Sun, the tactical roguelite Dread Nautical, and the 4X genre mishmash CastleStorm II. everyone expressed our desire to bring another RPG to life.

At Zen, it’s important that we make games that we want to play ourselves… and it just so happens that in recent years, a relatively new subgenre of RPGs has particularly fascinated many of us, the best example of which is Darkest Dungeon. And in the midst of this darkness, a light bulb flashed: “We like this game. Let’s do ours.”

“To put it simply, the world of Circus Electric was identical to ours until 1873, when a great innovation revolutionized electricity, sending the timeline in the direction of steampunk. Our story takes place 26 years later, after a horrific event known as the Maddening caused ordinary people to attack innocents seemingly against their will. Mysteriously immune to Madness, the artists of Circus Electrique join our protagonist Amelia in a quest to find out how it all happened and how to stop it.”
