Anarcute is both the cutest and the ultimate riot simulator. In Anarcute, the player gets to lead dozens of cute rioters that are determined to relieve the world from the rule of evil and sad forces who enforce their authority through the very very mean Brainwash Patrol.

Our rioters are ready to do anything, even if it means destroying whole cities to rebuild later. In order to recognize themselves, the rioters are adorable little animals, from cat to elephant or crocodile and many more to discover !. With a colorful and cute-Kawaii art style, Anarcute provides players with a cartoon and humorous experience.

The riot simulator was universally acclaimed and won several awards such as Best Student Project Unity Award 2015, Best of Show: Action Paris Games Week 2015, World Finalist Microsoft Imagine Cup 2014 and many more.
