Super Animal Royale – Battle royale with cuddly animals and guns enters Steam Early Access

[Steam page] The studio lights are dimmed and a giant eagle is dropping clusters of cute animals by umbrella into an island paradise. Welcome to Super Animal Royale, the first nature show with machine guns. Pick your favorite animal and in all likelihood, it will only live for 6 minutes or less. The cuddly carnage begins today! Super Animal Royale is a top-down multiplayer survival shooter for up to 64 players. Engineered to charm and kill, Super Animals are cute enough to make you go “Aww” and deadly enough to make you go “Ahh!”

Select your favorite from a menu of foxes, pandas, kitties, and other bloodthirsty beasts. Parachute into the ruins of an ill-fated safari park and fight off a lethal barrage of bullets, explosives, and silly dancing. Enjoy carefully balanced run and gun gameplay combined with an intuitive fog of war system that restricts a player’s view to line of sight, allowing for sneaky, strategic play. Matches are a brisk six minutes, so you’ll never be out of the action for too long. Explore a beautiful 2D world, inspired by classic top-down adventure games.

Cut tall grass and loot abandoned structures in search of the guns, explosives and health juice you’ll need to reach the top of the animal (literally) food chain. As of Early Access, Super Animal Royale already features over 50 animal breeds to research and unlock in the lab, and over 100 cosmetic items to earn, so you can make each Super Animal your own.

Super Animal Royale is now in Early Access on Steam after an extensive Beta, priced at a competitive $12.99 (USD). The game will debut with an extended free weekend (Weds Dec 12, 4am PST to Sun Dec 16, 4am) that also includes a 10% discount to celebrate its arrival on Early Access. A Founder’s Edition is also available with a ton of cool cosmetic options (3 animal breeds + 10 items) and is bundled with the game’s original soundtrack for $25.17.
