Party Panic has officially LAUNCHED!! 25% Off this week!



It's been a wild ride. I'm beyond thrilled of how Party Panic has been received so far, and I'm excited to see what everyone thinks of all the new content.

It's crazy to think that just over a year ago Party Panic first entered early access. At that time the game had 10 minigames, the gauntlet, and no online multiplayer, and now it's come so far, with so much more to do..

Let's take a look at what's been added in that year..

-Online Multiplayer (!!!!)
-20 minigames were added (totalling 30 now!)
-Trophy Island
-50+ hats and costumes
-Keyboard and mouse support
-Progression/leveling system with loot-boxes
-25+ Achievements
-Post-game Winner highlights

I'm honestly surprised I managed to get all that done as a solo dev, it was hard work, but it's beyond satisfying to finally see it all come together today as we launch out of Early Access.

Moving forward
You might be wondering what will happen with Party Panic moving forward. I am absolutely still working on more content. Right now the plan is to take a short break from dev (I've been working on Party Panic 7 days a week for the past 18 months..) but in a few weeks I'll start working on new minigames to start.

Let me know what you'd like to see added to Party Panic. Want more minigames? More Costumes? New game modes? Anything is possible!

I'll most likely be devoting some time in the near future to start looking at what it would take to get Party Panic on the Switch, Xbox One, and PS4.

Thanks for all the love you all gave to Party Panic while it was in Early Access. Without your support, Party Panic would not be what it is today!

Leaving Early Access and Trophy Island coming Aug 7th!!!!

August 7th is the day!!! Mark your calendars, add Party Panic to your wishlist!!!

A few months ago I posted in the forums a "Roadmap to Release" thread, outlining the path towards leaving early access and launching Party Panic. During the past year of being in Early Access Party Panic has gone through some major changes, not to mention all the new content added to the game. Can you believe we started with 10 minigames, and now we're up to 30? Or all the hats and costumes, loot boxes, and other things that have been added to the game?

There's still a bit left to do, but it's mostly just polishing at this point. Pretty soon (next weekish) I'm going to start sending out pre-release copies of the game for reviewers and lets players. (If that's you, check out the post here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/506500/discussions/0/1326718197217434117/)

Check out the new trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYgfY5eDsxI

Party Panic wouldn't have made it this far if it wasn't for all the support and suggestions from all the players. Party Panic has already exceeded my expectations, and I've very grateful to all of you!! I've been working as hard as I can over the last year and a half, and I'm proud of what Party Panic has become so far. I hope you're all as excited as I am!

I want to note that after the game launches August 7th I am still going to be working on Party Panic. It is not the end. More content will be coming in regular updates, but some of that time will be spent working on figuring out how to get Party Panic on consoles and some other things!

Only a few more weeks to go!!

About This Game

Party Panic is a crazy online and local-multiplayer party game. Compete against your friends in 30+ rapid fire minigames, race through the brutal Gauntlet, or complete the trophy challenges on Trophy Island. There is even a built in drinking game! You'll laugh, you'll cry, it's stupid. Grab your friends, pick your characters and get partying in this exciting and panic filled game!



Are you ready to punch your friends in the face?
Are you ready to chase exploding chickens?
Are you ready to run away from stupid (and hungry) whales?
Are you ready to play football with your face?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you might be ready for the stupidest party game ever!



  • Online & Local Multiplayer
    Grab your friends for a night of couch gaming, or play against them online! Have one friend that can't make it to your game night? No worries, you can play with 3 local players and 1 online player!

  • 30+ crazy minigames!
    Over 30 unique minigames! Run, jump, and punch your way to first place! Fight over gems, chase exploding chickens, play football with your face! More minigames coming in future updates!

  • The Gauntlet
    Race your friends through the deadly and brutal obstacle course that is the Gauntlet. Can you be the first to make it through the giant swinging axes, spike traps and more?

  • Bots
    Party Panic is a hoot when playing with your friends on the couch or online, but sometimes this isn't an option. Bots are available to play against, to guarantee it's always a party, even when your friends are not around! Bots have three difficulties: Easy, Normal, and Hard. Or turn them off completely!

  • Silly hats!
    Everyone knows all great games let you wear hats. Silly hats only. Wear a pot on your head, strap a rocket to your back, or a wear a hot dog costume. Or just stick your head in a piece of bread. Whatever works. ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

  • Leveling System
    Every time you play you'll get XP used to unlock loot boxes. Each loot box contains TWO costumes you do not yet own, of which you can choose one to keep! Can you unlock them all?

  • Lovable (but slightly deranged) characters
    In Party Panic you play as a Goober. You're a goofy goober. I'm a goofy goober. We're all goofy goobers. They're a little bit crazy though (probably from all the blunt force trauma to the head.) They like to scream randomly. Like a lot.

  • Built-in drinking game!
    Enable it while configuring your game, the party into a party. Or don't, I'm not the boss of you!

  • Original (awesome) soundtrack
    Party Panic sounds like a party. Literally.




  • Can I play the game alone?
    Yes. The game can be played with one player against bots, although the more human players you have the more fun the game is! All the party minigames are built around 4 players so it is recommended to leave bots enabled, however you don't have to - the bots can be disabled and the game can be played with 2-4 players.


  • Is there online multiplayer?
    Yes! (As of October 14th, 2016)
    More info about this here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/506500/discussions/0/343785574519325884/

  • Does it work with Steam Link, & In-home streaming?
    Yes. Some users have reported getting a black screen on startup, see how to fix this here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/506500/discussions/0/343785574529836515/

  • Do I have to use a controller?
    No, you don't have to, Party Panic can be played completely with a keyboard and mouse now! If you want to use a controller, any usb or wireless controller+receiver should work. You can customize your controls to find something that works best for you if you don't like the default keyboard configuration via the options menu.

  • What languages?
    Party Panic has support for English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Italian, Turkish, and Russian. If you want to see a specific language leave a message on the forums!
