Issues with Game Description & Split Screen

Dear Players,

We have received feedback about some confusion regarding our game description.

Here is the original version of the game description online:

Fight your friends as puppies, kittens, and other fuzzy creatures in PARTY ANIMALS! Paw it out with your friends both online and offline. Interact with the world under our realistic physics engine. Did I mention PUPPIES?

The phrase raising concerns is:

Paw it out with your friends both online and offline.

Our intention with this sentence was to convey that you can play with your friends remotely (online), or together in the same location using the same device (offline) through split-screen.

However, it seems this statement led some players to believe that Party Animals supports an offline mode. We regret the misunderstanding and wish to clarify that the game does not have, nor do we plan to introduce, an offline mode. Party Animals currently requires an online connection to play.

To prevent further misunderstandings, we have revised the game description. The controversial sentence has since been replaced with the following: "Paw it out with your friends remotely, or huddle together for chaotic fun on the same screen."

We sincerely apologize for any confusion our wording caused. It was never our intention to mislead our player base about the availability of an offline mode.

The game did not feature an offline mode in the recent three rounds of playtesting either. Intentionally misleading our players while conducting playtests that clearly reveal the absence of an offline mode would be nonsensical. (We admit, however, that our description could have been more thoughtfully worded...)

Lastly, we hope this does not sound like an excuse, but English is not our first language, and sometimes we fail to realize when our phrasing might lead to misunderstandings.

Looking back at 2020, Party Animals has offline mode

This demo is no longer available but it has an offline mode.
