This Overcooked-Style Chaotic Co-Op Game Just Released A Free Demo On PS4, Xbox One, Switch
Everyone hates moving, but in the new indie game Moving Out, it's actually a delight.
Moving Out, the whimsical, '80s-inspired co-op game where you play as a member of a moving team known as F.A.R.T, has launched a free demo to help give people an idea about what it's all about. The free demo is available now across the PlayStation Store, the Xbox Store, and the Nintendo eShop.
Developed by Australian outfit SMG Studios, Moving Out is also getting a pre-order bonus. Everyone who pre-orders the game will get the "Employees of the Month" pack, which includes an Australian character named Bruce the Koala. The name comes from the Monty Python sketch about a group of Aussies named Bruce. The bundle also includes Professor Inkle (an octopus), Sprinkles (a doughnut), and Dials (a CRT TV). Check out the trailer below to see more of each character and the game overall.
Moving Out has you playing as Furniture Arrangement and Relocation Technician (F.A.R.T). With up to three others, you must work together to move objects from inside a building to a moving truck outside. It's not always so simple or straightforward, however, as some objects require two people to move and you must also coordinate your timing to toss objects over obstacles or into the truck.
There is also an Assist mode that allows players to turn down the difficulty or extend the timers, among other things that should help everyone have a good time. There are also character customization tools that allow you to change hairstyles and color, while you can also give your creature a wheelchair or a hijab.
Moving Out launches on April 24 for $25 USD. The game bears a resemblance to another popular co-op game, Overcooked. The two games share the same publisher, Team17. You can check out some brand-new gameplay in the videos embedded above.
