[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

Retail Royale is a Battle Royale that takes place in an IKEA-style inspired store named “IDEA”. 12 Players will battle do the death via advanced melee and ranged combat with everything in the store available as a weapon, including the vast variety of furniture and other objects. Mechanics wise, it's very similar to “The Culling” but brings its own twists to combat and gameplay.

As a player throughout the match you will scavenge for weapons and loot, recycling unneeded items for materials which you can then use to craft better gear.

The game is currently in an alpha stage, but will hopefully release in Early Access to Steam in Q3 2021.

“There’s something about wandering around an IKEA that makes ordinary happy couples want to tear each other apart, so it should make for a great battle royale setting. It looks like a lot of fun and it’ll be nice to get a chance to wreck those pristine furniture displays!” -KJ Robertson
