Forget PUBG and Fortnite — this battle royale is all about adorable, murderous animals who want to take each other out! This top-down strategic title lets up to 64 players battle for supremacy, going tooth and claw against each others to be the leader of the pack. The cartoony animal adventure takes a set of psychotic animals who want nothing more than to tear each other apart and lets you kill your way to the top. Oh, it's also adorable. Super Animal Royale is releasing this month on Steam, if you're so inclined to try a new battle royale title with a twist!
This homage to the classic Sid Meier game Pirates! is a single-player strategy/role-playing game for Android devices that takes place in 1650.

That's where the fun lies! It's available right now, if you're so inclined to give it a try!

The game's currently available as a Steam Early Access title, so you can play it right now.
