Fight your friends as puppies, kittens and other fuzzy creatures in Party Animals as you paw it out both online and offline.

Party Animals brings together a range of adorable animals from puppies and kittens to bunnies and duckies in the cutest cooperative brawler you’ve ever seen! Physics-based multiplayer hilarity ensues as these calamitous critters wrestle, punch, throw and tussle their way through a variety of task-oriented or competitive games in online or offline modes.

Party Animals’ unique physics engine, developed in-house by Recreate Games, features completely physics-driven character movements, leading to seemingly haphazard, floppy encounters that are both unpredictable and hilarious. 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? Get tangled up in a rumble with your friends and frenemies, and all you can do is hope for the best!

Featuring a variety of game modes in local and online multiplayer, including free-for-all skirmishes and objective-based gameplay, Party Animals journeys through an eclectic mix of environments where anything can happen - such as all-out lollipop warfare between a cute dinosaur and a fluffy shark!

Party Animals made waves on Steam last weekend with its free demo clocking up an impressive 135,000 concurrent players. This placed it at No.4 for most concurrent players played on Steam, having previously ranked No.1 in Trending/Most Wishlisted/Most Downloaded and Playing Now categories in the latest Steam Game Festival!

The demo gave players a wide variety of cute characters to choose from including puppies, kittens, ducks, bunnies, sharks, dinosaurs and even unicorns to wrestle, punch, throw, tussle and flop about in a cataclysm of hilarious physics-based fun.

“The latest Party Animals demo has far exceeded even our best expectations for the second time around,” said Andy Jianyi, Product Manager for Recreate Games. “Reaching over 135,000 concurrent players means that we are now looking to add more resources to our internal development team and we are actively recruiting to prepare for the full release version of Party Animals.” Added Andy Jianyi.

Party Animals is unleashing the “cute” on PC (Steam) and consoles in late 2020.
