Penarium Out Now – Waving The Flag for Fat Ginger Kids Throughout the World

Circus animals are not cool – But Killer Bees in a circus are.

Self Made Miracle were one of my favourite developer’s to work with when I was still making video games only a few months ago. They’re a small, very clever young team that are still passionate and not yet jaded by the industry – I would heartily recommend them to you! This game they’ve slaved away on for months and months is so finely tuned it could give a grand piano a run for its money. They recognised it’s “just one more go” appeal might not translate so well with a trailer only, so they decided to make demo’s for players to try before they buy – a really wise choice I think. Seriously, this game is fun. Here’s what SMM say about their game, “Penarium”, out on Xbox, PS4 and Steam right now:

Penarium is a frantic 2D arena arcade game where you take on the role of our quirky antihero; Willy. Willy is trapped in a crazy circus show where he needs to run, jump and avoid an array of killer death traps while being cheered on by a sadistic crowd that’s out for blood; his blood. Survive the ever ongoing armada of destruction for as long as you can and crown yourself champion of the Penarium!

After working on a strategy game and a level based puzzle game we wanted to do something completely different. We decided to create a basic prototype for a fast paced arena platformer. No multiple scrolling levels, no puzzles and no strategic thinking just instant unpredictable action. Overtime we turned this prototype into the sadistic circus extravaganza that is Penarium today.


  • Instant arcade action
  • Pick up and play controls
  • Sinister circus theme
  • Countless ways to die
  • Multiple game modes
