Butter Royale is set in the near future where traditional weapons have been banned globally. Replacing guns and rocket launchers in the game are kitchen-inspired implements like sauce-shooting blasters and Breadzookas.
Players are air-dropped in to a random location on Butter Island with only a stale baguette for defence. They have to acquire a “Nutrionally Operated Machines” or NOMs and engage in a food fight with others that they encounter.
