Penarium is a nightmarish circus experience set as a 2D arena-style arcade game on the Xbox One. You play Willy, a awkward antihero, who becomes trapped in this freaky circus, and he needs to run, jump, and dodge a number of deadly circus contraptions while a sadistic crowd cheers for his demise. According to Penarium’s website, “every kid wants to go to the circus but no kid wants to die in one,” sets the tone for this dark, horrific adventure.
Penarium allows you to play solo, against, or with your friends in local 2-player versus or co-op mode on Xbox One. Willy’s goal is to try to survive for as long as he can to become Champion of Penarium. If Willy does not succeed, he will die in hilariously horrific ways possible for the sake of ruthless entertainment to the roar of fiendishly exuberant crowd.Major Nelson, Microsoft, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Xbox One
