There’s something about this game that makes our team act like silly lunatics every time we see a trailer or get a press release: it is party animalsand it’s the game where chubby animals frolic and destroy each other with bizarre objects.
Last night Recreate Games apologized for the “longer wait” since the 2020 demo and announced this party animals will be released on September 20th and will be released for both PC and Xbox (Xbox One and X|S). It’s priced at $20, and mind you, it’s not an MMO, but a multiplayer game. The studio has dubbed it a co-op brawler, but the developers told us last night that it includes online co-op and multiple game modes pitting teams against each other, so maybe co-op isn’t exactly the right word here for what’s basically team -PvP?
“The hilarity erupts in this physics-based multiplayer mode as players attempt to toss, wrestle, punch, and fling their friends… or fall on their adorable little faces in the process.” […] The team at Recreate Games has been working hard to make Party Animals the best cuddle puddle mosh pit possible and they, along with the eager community, are excited for its release soon. With seamless crossplay between the PC and Xbox platforms, it’s easier than ever to smash, smash and brawl with your friends and foes! […] The biggest challenge of playing Party Animals is dealing with the floppy, unpredictable physics while laughing so hard you can’t breathe. Do you have what it takes to succeed while struggling to see what’s happening despite the tears of joy streaming down your face? win or lose; It’s hard to be frustrated when you’re having so much fun!”
