If you’re interested in a Beta Key for Super Animal Royale, Pixile is inviting people to their Discord channel to request one (and make sure to join the CanadianGameDevs Discord channel for unrelated-fun reasons!)

If you’re unfamiliar with Super Animal Royale, it’s a top-down multiplayer survival shooter for sixtyfour players.

“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.”
