Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've been working closely with our alpha/beta community to help us make this the best game it can be, and Early Access is a chance bring even more Super Animal players into the fold and get their feedback!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’d like to complete the full game before the end of 2019 and we’re pushing to get it completed within the next ~6 months, but we’re going to take all the time we need in Early Access to learn from our community and make use of those lessons before putting out the full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our Early Access version provides a solid, polished foundation to build on. With the full release, we plan to add more content and features including weapons, vehicles, animals, cosmetics. We also plan to increase the density of unique points of interest on the island, and these new map features will help players discover the twisted history of Super Animals. We’ll also be evolving the game’s progression systems and adding new quality of life features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • All the core mechanics are implemented and a lot of balancing work has been done, but we’ll continue to take more feedback and refine everything throughout Early Access.
  • There is a full island to explore that supports 64 player online multiplayer. If player populations are low at certain times of day, we have bots that can fill up the remaining slots in games as necessary.
  • Solos, Duos and Squads are implemented and support both team text chat and all text chat.
  • The island has multiple biomes including evergreen forest, deciduous forest, swamp, desert, and a snowy north. It also has some of its first story-related points of interest including the S.A.W. Research Labs, with more coming soon.
  • 12 weapons (including your starting melee weapon) are implemented in the game with 5 different levels of rarity.
  • 16 core Super Animals are available to unlock with more than 50 unique breeds (ex. Super Shiba Inu, Super Pug, Super Boston Terrier, Super Lab, and Super Husky are all unlockable breeds after you unlock the core Super Dog).
  • We have over 100 cosmetics already in the game to unlock, and will be adding more throughout Early Access. Cosmetics include outfits, hats, glasses, beards, melee weapon skins, gun skins, umbrellas, tombstones, death explosions, and emotes/dances, which can be combined to create your own distinct Super Animal.
  • Our core progression system is implemented with account leveling, as well as Animal DNA, Super Serum, and cosmetic drops at the end of games. Animal DNA is collected and combined with Super Serum to create new Super Animals and breeds.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not go up after Early Access. Instead, we will be adding new optional cosmetic items (that don’t have any gameplay effects) throughout Early Access and experimenting with player friendly IAP approaches to prepare us for full launch. These systems and items will fund the game’s continued development after Early Access and potentially allow us to offer lower upfront prices in the future to open the game up to more and more players. We take the design of these systems very seriously, so we’ll be looking for player feedback all the way through Early Access on them to make sure they’re a positive (pawsitive?) and fun addition to the game!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We’ve already been very active in our dialogue with our alpha/beta community through development and it’s one of the big reasons the game is what it is today! We plan to continue that throughout Early Access so players can be open with us about what’s working and what isn’t, new features or balancing tweaks they’d like to see and new animals, weapons or other content ideas that they think would be fun! We also appreciate all the animal pics and artwork. Can’t have enough cat gifs.”

Super Otters are here and new Discord Parties allow you to invite Super Free Edition friends to join your Squad!

Hey Super Animals! The update this weekend is gonna be otter this world, so it’s time to recruit some squadmates, grab the patch in Steam and join us on the island for some games!

Discord parties are here! We heard you loud and clear, and came up with a way for you to invite your Super Free Edition friends to join a party with you.

Last update, we added Discord Rich Presence so you can see if your friends are in a game, what mode they’re playing, and how many players are still alive. Steam invites still only work in the full game (Steam parties don’t work between demos and full games) but as of this week, you can now invite your friends to a Discord party with you, regardless of whether they have the full game or the Super Free Edition!

Super Otter has arrived on the island and is accompanied by 5 alternative Super Otter breeds, bringing the total number of Super Animal breeds up to 157! As of today you’ll be able to create the following new breeds in the Research Lab once you reach level 15:
  • Super Otter
  • Super Navy Otter
  • Super Chestnut Otter
  • Super Red Otter
  • Super Golden Otter
  • Super Sea Otter
Round up all your otter friends! It’s another squads weekend for you and up to 3 more friends to team up and reach the top of the food chain.

v0.87.5 Luke Stinkwalker + Weekend Update Patch Notes

Hey Super Animals, we hope you’ve been having a ton of fun with the new Super Skunks and Skunk Bombs we released on Friday! If you missed those patch notes you can read them here.

And as we teased, on Saturday we also dropped a little May the 4th surprise for all of you. Super Light Swords are now available in the game as random drops, and they come multiple colors and rarities:
  • White (common)
  • Green (uncommon)
  • Blue (rare)
  • Purple (epic)
  • Gold (legendary)
  • Red (legendary)

Today, Duos mode returns, and as we mentioned in our post about our 100k users milestone, Super Animal Royale continues to grow steadily thanks to your kind Steam reviews, sharing of the game, and supportive behavior in-game towards new players, so it shouldn’t be too much longer before we can enable all 3 modes permanently! In the meantime, you can look forward to the next Squads Weekend alongside our next update that is dropping in less than 2 weeks on Friday, May 17th.

Lastly, we’ve also added a couple small improvements tonight that you can read about below (the new cages in the Research Labs feel particularly nice and are more clear about how they block bullets). See you all on the island!

v0.87.5 Patch Notes
  • Duos mode has returned! The next squads weekend will be on May 17th.
  • Six Super Light Swords have been added to the drop table (arrived on May 4th).
  • We’ve also improved the Super Light Sword sound effects slightly in tonight's update.
  • Updated the cages in the Research Lab buildings to have more visible bars and shadows. We felt that the previous cages weren’t visually clear enough about how they interacted with bullets, so we turned them into clear bars that interact with line of sight shadows. The bars block bullets/vision, and the gaps between them do not.
  • The Bamboo and Beakeasy stage shows can now be triggered while waiting for the game to start in the lobby.
  • Adjusted some of the cover and crates in each of the three Research Lab buildings.
  • Your skunk bombs will now play the hit sound whenever they damage an enemy.
  • Improved background color of legendary items in the menu (thanks to Ashyfox in our Discord for the suggestion!).
  • Fix for grenades warping out of some unwalkable areas like the Bamboo Resort pond.
  • Improved character tails warping while shooting.
  • Fix for rare glitch of unbreakable crates/doors.
  • Fixed character clipping issue with a few tables in the Welcome Center.
  • Slightly increased player collisions on the Research Lab's SAW sign.
  • Lowered player collisions behind military tents.
  • Applied a fix for being stuck repairing armor forever.

About This Game


Try the Super Free Edition and your progress will sync right into the full version when you upgrade.

Free Edition players can't group up with friends using Steam friend's list, but they can play unlimited online multiplayer in any mode as much as they like!

Fight for FURvival:

Super Animal Royale is an intense, strategic, top-down 2D twist on the battle royale genre. Up to 64 adorably murderous animals fight tooth and claw (and machine gun) across diverse, exotic biomes, each vying for top dog (or top cat, or top get the idea).

  • Enjoy atmospheric battle royale action from a whole new top down perspective.
  • An intuitive fog of war system enables sneaky, strategic play.
  • Explore a massive, beautifully illustrated island paradise, with diverse biomes and the cryptic remains of a super safari park gone awry.
  • Chop the tall grass to find hidden items, because that’s what you do with tall grass.

So what makes the free edition super?

Well, aside from the fact that sticking the word "Super" in front of everything makes it better, this isn't your typical demo/trial version. It allows you to play the game fully online, as much as you like! And you can even start progressing through the game, earning items and animal DNA. These cosmetic items you earn in the Super Free Edition are locked, so you won't be able to create new Super Animals or dress them up to make them your own, but if you like the game and choose to purchase it, all of your items and progress you've earned will transfer right into the full game! That's pretty Super, right? Hopefully not so super that you'll avoid supporting development of the game, but we're really proud of what we've built and the community that has grown around it, so we hope that giving you the chance to experience it for yourself will show you that it's an Early Access game worth supporting!

Constantly evolving, refined gameplay:

The top down view and streamlined mechanics make this the most accessible battle royale yet, while surprisingly deep strategy and a high skill cap rewards more advanced players. The game has also been optimized to run smoothly whether you play on a Macbook or a beastly gaming PC.

The island and roster of genetically engineered super animals are constantly (ahem) evolving with updates. Your super animal can be customized with new outfits, tombstones, death explosions, weapons, dance moves, and more, so you can look your best as you do your worst.

Join us in Super Animal World to see what we're building with our Early Access community and contribute to the game's development!
