Moving Out: Frantic, couch co-op game for up to four players launches today

If you’ve ever been through the moving process you know that it can be nerve-wracking, full of tension and physically taxing. Did you pack everything you needed (like your wife’s closet full of shoes) or overpack? Will the furniture fit through the doors? Was the moving truck filled with gas before it arrived to pick everything up? Pretty understandable reasons why people don’t look forward to moving.

But can all of those frustrations be sublimated into a humorous, stress-relieving cooperative video game? Moving Out, a frantic, couch co-op game for up to for players from developer Team17 Digital Ltd. seeks to answer that very question.

Moving Out puts players in the career path of a F.A.R.T! (Furniture Arrangement Relocation Technician), furniture movers tasked with relocating furnishings in increasingly bizarre locales in the busy town of Packmore. “Smooth Moves may not be the biggest moving company, but there’s no task too dangerous or strange for this busy team of go-getters. Grow your business to brave new heights, recruit colourful customisable characters, and save your town from furniture peril!”

Co-op: Play single player or with up to three friends in local couch co-op! Playing on Steam? Take the game online with Steam Remote Play Together!

Dual Mover Mode: Challenge yourself and take control of two Movers using the joysticks on your controller!

Variety of levels: Every moving company starts small, but as your reputation ranks up, so do your destinations. Move through sleepy suburbs, frenzied farms, haunted houses, virtual reality and lands beyond!

Character customization: All Movers have their own unique customization options and every Mover can use a wheelchair!

Assist Mode: Less danger? No problem! More time? You got it! Assist Mode lets you adjust the features in game to suit your player experience.

Accessibility Features: Along with the option to toggle on dyslexic-friendly text, Moving Out has an option to adjust UI text, change the control scheme on controller and remap keys on keyboard for PC, and have subtitled speech.

Moving Out is available now on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and Steam platforms.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
