World’s deadliest zoo opens Dec 12 – Super Animal Royale launch date announced
The team at Pixile has a bit of a situation. A Super Animal cadre consisting of a fox, two bears, and a pug have lost patience waiting for the release of Super Animal Royale and taken the development team hostage. The rogue animals have released a statement:
“We, the Super Animals, are pleased to announce that Super Animal Royale will be hitting PC and Mac screens worldwide via Steam Early Access on December 12. If the development team feels unprepared to meet this milestone, we kindly suggest they stop whining and get back to work. What? I can’t understand you with that gag in your mouth. Oh, right. As soon as we untie them, yes, that goes without saying. Thank you!”
Well, now that’s out there, I suppose we have to do it. Well played, heavily armed animal militia, well played. Please untie us now so we can run a few final Beta sessions:
The final beta test will take place the weekend before launch: December 8th and 9th and there should be a fair few streamers there too. Get in, furry friends.
Players who do not yet have a Beta key should join the Super Animal Discord serverand head to the #keyme channel starting 30 mins before each play test, or any time while the Beta is live. Once there, players can type !keyme and Pixile’s trusty key delivery bot, Dukey Bear, will deliver them a key (while supplies last).
For all the ostriches who have had their heads in holes in the sand for the last month – we love you guys, no, we do! – Super Animal Royale is a top-down multiplayer survival shooter for up to sixty-four adorably murderous critters. Engineered to charm and trained to kill, Super Animals™ are cute enough to make you go “Aww” and deadly enough to make you go “Ahhhh!” Select your favorite from a menu of foxes, pandas, kitty cats, 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. 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 food chain.
Players can play for free in the Beta by signing up at Animal Royale and also pre-order the game for $12.99 USD; the game will be landing on Steam Early Access for PC / Mac on 12th December!
