The Grand Carnival
Ladies and gentlemen, step right up – the carnival is coming to town!
A tense, 2-player game of big explosions, crazy stunts, and daring escapes.
When super villains vie for control of the world, every move could spell disaster.
Dangerous encounters and double-crossing teammates.
Some companies exist to "maximize return", or "dominate their vertical" or "create shareholder value". At Uproarious, we don't even know what those words mean... which is why we just stick to making games.
Whether outwitting your opponent, exploring uncharted realms, or laughing til you're blue in the face, our games create experiences. We engage a player's imagination to make something truly magical - a memory you'll be snickering about for years to come.
Uproarious was launched in early 2016 by the award winning game designer, Jeff Beck, and is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. We currently have four games in various stages of development and a weekly podcast focused on the indie game design scene.
Your Table’s on Fire!
