How to fix Party Animals error 10002

Party Animals error 10002 likely appears because too many people are trying to play the game, but this message can also appear for other reasons. To fix it, you can try to do one of the following:

  • Check that your device and Party Animals are both up to date.
  • If you’re using the Steam version, verify your Party Animals installation by right-clicking on the game name in your library, selecting Properties, and then clicking ‘verify integrity of game files’ in the Installed Files tab. Other versions should try uninstalling and then reinstalling the game.
  • Check your internet speed by performing a Google search for “Internet Speed Test” to see if your connection is unstable.
  •  If none of these work, the reason is almost certainly because the Party Animals servers are overloaded. Check back again later to see if this resolves itself.

You can also check for yourself if Party Animals is suffering from server issues by going to the support section of the official Party Animals website, joining the Party Animals Discord channel, or reading the Party Animals X account (formerly known as Twitter).
