Party Animals provides a range of adorable animals, from puppies and kittens to bunnies and duckies, in the cutest cooperative brawler you’ve ever seen! The unique physics engine, developed in-house by Recreate Games, features completely physics-driven character movements, leading to unpredictable yet hilarious encounters as the cute critters wrestle, punch, throw, and grapple their way through various task-oriented or competitive games in online or offline modes.


Will your punch land in that sweet spot and send your foe flying off the stage, or will it knock your character completely off balance? If you get tangled up in a rumble with your friends and frenemies, all you can do is hope for the best! Win or lose, it’s difficult to feel frustrated when you’re having so much floppy fun. Paw up, grab a plunger, and let’s get this party started!


Gameplay Features:

  • Unique Physics Engine - Completely physics-driven character movements lead to seemingly haphazard, floppy, unpredictable, and hilarious encounters. 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?

  • Variety of Game Modes - With 20 different maps and 3 game modes to choose from, including free-for-all skirmishes and objective-based gameplay, players will journey through an eclectic mix of environments where anything can happen - such as all-out lollipop warfare between a cute dinosaur and a fluffy shark!

  • Cute Animals - Choose your character from a diverse cast of adorable animals, customize their appearance, and dive into the cuddle puddle mosh pit!

  • Collect Cosmetic Items - Over 200 cosmetic items, such as animals and outfits, can be unlocked by acquiring in-game currencies through gameplay or purchasing them. Cosmetics are purely aesthetic and do not provide any gameplay advantages… aside from being cuter than your opponents, of course!

  • Seamless Crossplay - With cross-platform play between PC and Xbox, no friend will be left behind in this whirlwind of absurdity. Say goodbye to the fear of missing out on the nonsensical shenanigans—everyone's invited to the party!

Party Animals will be available on PC and Xbox One / Series X|S on September 20, 2023. Pre-order it now to receive additional in-game perks and stay up to date with all things Party Animals on the official website, Twitter, Facebook, and Discord.
