Throw some furniture when Moving Out launches this April

I never enjoyed moving out. All the packing and organizing and cleaning, then unpacking, ugh. Thankfully, undressing doesn’t make you do anything with real life – instead, you run around as a wobbly little moving person who tosses boxes and tables into your truck without worrying around the world about tearing some doors down or putting valuables on the market to bring in a pool.

I played Moving Out on EGX last year and it’s utter chaos – and you’ll be able to see it all for yourself when it comes out on April 28th.

The mess of teamwork you have to do in this game reminds me a lot of Overcooked. You can step in with up to four players in local co-op (or solo if you prefer) to help the Packmore townspeople move out of their beautiful (or ruined, if that’s done) homes.

There was a level where me and the other movers had to have a sofa and some chairs behind a haunted piano that would eat us up if we got too close. We threw the furniture out the window (duh, we were on a tight schedule) to quickly bypass the possessed instrument and fell straight into a ghost patrolling downstairs. It was great.

Ah, I found a screenshot of the level! These people seem to escape the ghost better than I do.

The game has a range of accessibility features such as “increased time limits, dyslexic friendly text, rebinding of the keyboard on the PC, the ability to skip levels and a sliding scale for the user interface size”. And the developers also added a lot of character customization options: “From hijabs to glasses to wheelchairs, players can realize their furniture removal dreams in a style that perfectly represents them.”

Moving Out starts on April 28th on Steam as well as on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

If you’re looking for some more couch co-op party madness to surprise you, Overcooked 2 (also released by Team17) recently received a Lunar New Year update with all the new levels and recipes to try out.

For those of you who want to enjoy a relaxed moving situation, packing the rest of your belongings in your old apartment on itch on the last day may be more your style. Or check out Unpacking, a puzzle game where you can find space for all of your belongings in a new home.
