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.”

June 12

Super Ferrets, Super Hedgehogs and rainbows! Another update and squads test weekend have arrived.

Our latest update is live! The new Super Ferrets and Super Hedgehogs have joined the fight, and they’ve brought with them rainbow hats and umbrellas so you can show off your Pride in-game! Just enter the code “love” in the main menu to unlock them.

This update is on the smaller side as we prep for a major new update in 2 weeks, but we hope you enjoy all the new animals and items!

Here are the full patch notes for this week:
  • Super Ferret (level 5) and Super Hedgehog (level 20) join the fight. Each has 3 additional Super Animal breeds to create as well!
  • Rainbow items are here! Use coupon code love in the menu to redeem them and show off your Pride!
  • Squads mode is back until Sunday June 16.
  • Shirakami Fubuki will be streaming at 10pm local time in Japan (6am PDT) on Friday, June 14th, and she’ll be revealing two new items on her stream that we made just for her! Watch live for a chance to get them.
  • Made an improvement to the issue of ghost bullets: the game client will accelerate enemy bullets so they match the actual bullet on the server. We evaluated several different ways we could improve it, as clientside movement is a large part of it, but this should be a good first step.
  • Hamster ball hitbox adjusted to better match its shape and size.
  • Skunk grenades now drop from mole crates.
  • All grenades and tape now have a 3-pack visual.
  • Fix for bots sometimes not targeting closer enemies.
  • Bots walking through walls should be fixed but let us know if you still see it happen.
  • Bots shouldn't clip corners as much now.
  • Russian translation fixes.
  • Newspaper melee weapon updated.
  • And we have a couple more special item surprises for over the weekend ;).

May 30

Super Ducks, Eagles, Hawks and the new Deagle gun have flapped flightlessly onto the island in the latest Super Update!

A new weapon has arrived (feathers included). The new Deagle gun comes in epic and legendary varieties, with legendaries being exclusive to mole crates. The epic (purple) version of the deagle replaces the epic magnum, and one of its most significant differences from the magnum is that it can remove 2 ticks of armor per shot. Deagles provide a more mobile alternative to snipers, retaining more accuracy while running and rolling.

We’re also debuting Super Duck (with 6 additional breeds) and Super Hawk (with 5 additional breeds, including Super Eagle):

Super Duck
  • Super Green Mallard
  • Super Blue Mallard
  • Super Purple Mallard
  • Super White Duck
  • Super Black Duck
  • Super Duckling
Super Hawk
  • Super Goshawk
  • Super Osprey
  • Super Peregrine
  • Super Kestrel
  • Super Eagle

Shoot deagles with friends: it’s another squads weekend from May 31 - June 3
During this squads test weekend, for the debut of the Deagle, we’re guaranteeing a Deagle drop in every mole crate so you can all enjoy trying it out! We also recently added Discord invites that work between both free and paid editions, so it’s a great weekend to introduce new friends to the game!

And don’t forget to submit your best clips from this weekend to Super Animal Royale Tonight episode 4!
You can submit your superest and blooperest 1080p+, 30fps+, <=30s clips here:

And you can catch up on the previous episodes here:
Pixile at Dreamhack Dallas 2019

Get your very own in-game Dreamhack Dallas umbrella by entering the coupon code: dreamhack in the Super Animal Royale main menu.

Day 1 of Dreamhack Dallas 2019 begins in the morning, and we have a booth (#iz-14), so come say hi to Michael, Bob and Logan if you’re attending! You can tag us on Twitter @AnimalRoyale, and use the hashtags #dreamhackdallas and #animalroyale. We’ll also be posting updates from the show floor in our Discord server:

Additional Updates:
In addition to the new gun, new Super Animals, and squads weekend, we’ve added a bunch more quality of life improvements:
  • New 3D positional sound system: many sounds such as gunshots now have their frequencies customized so that they sound clearly lower when below the player, and higher when above.
  • Maximum game lobby time reduced to 140s (down from 170s) to get games starting as quickly as possible. We ran some tests and found that 140s would improve waiting times while also having very little impact on the total number of players in a match.
  • Overhauled the entire character animations file to be drastically more efficient/performant. Let us know if any cosmetics appear incorrect!
  • Fixed invisible collision above the bamboo resort houses.
  • Added new specific fonts for Korean and Chinese. For some users the font may appear the same as before.
  • Translation fixes.
  • Minor changes to the Discord parties code to fix certain cases where matchmaking could fail.

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!
