We’ve already told you about one party based game today, but hot on the heels of the party wrecker that is Party Crasher Simulator, Recreate Games have announced that their cute and cuddly brawler will be coming to PC and console later in 2020. Are you ready for Party Animals?
After first being revealed at the recent Steam Game Festival – where demand for the demo broke the development teams’ servers – Party Animals has now been confirmed for launch on PC and console (what console, we don’t know, but we’ll take an Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch release any day of the week) later this year.
Billed as a hilarious floppy physics action game, Party Animals stole the hearts of players at the Steam Game Festival, Summer Edition, but now, with PC and console launches confirmed, that cuteness overload has only just begun.
Created by those at Recreate Games Party Animals brings together a range of adorable animals from puppies and kittens to bunnies and ducks in the cutest cooperative brawler you’ve ever seen. Working with physics-based multiplayer hilarity, it will ensure that you find these calamitous critters wrestling, punching, throwing and tussling their way through a variety of task-oriented or competitive games in online or offline modes.
“We were overwhelmed with the reaction to the Party Animals demo at the Steam Game Festival a couple of weeks ago. It literally was a case of ‘cute overload’, as the demand exceeded the abilities of our third-party servers, and crashed the game!,” said Andy Jianyi, Product Manager for Recreate Games. “We never anticipated the game would be so popular that we’d have to work around the clock to fix our servers, but we are not complaining! We are thrilled that people enjoyed the game so much, and for a small studio like ours, this is a good problem to have.”
Party Animals comes with a unique physics engine, one that has been developed in-house. It is this which features completely physics-driven character movements, leading to seemingly haphazard, floppy encounters that are both unpredictable and hilarious. How the fight plays out is anyone’s guess – Will your punch land in that sweet spot and send your foe flying off the stage, or will it knock your own character completely off balance?
Promising a variety of game modes across both local and online multiplayer, including free-for-all skirmishes and objective-based gameplay, Party Animals looks set to deliver an eclectic mix of environments where anything can happen – such as all-out lollipop warfare between a cute dinosaur and a fluffy shark! And as soon as we know more, and certainly when we know the ‘console’ formats it’ll be launching on, we’ll let you know. For now though, consider wishlisting it over on Steam.
