Developed by Studio Gauntlet and published by Crunching Koalas, Bonkies – the wholesome couch co-op, perfect for spending some quality time with your loved ones, is set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on January 29th! Players will be able to secure a pre-order on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch with a -20% discount.
Bonkies is a jolly party game about cooperation, space construction and the joys of colonising the solar system as a team of monkeys. Players will be tasked with raising all sorts of quirky constructions on distant planets, by stacking blocks so they fit a given outline. To do so, they will have to team up with other space faring animals and master the use of their trusty apequipment – a banana-fuelled jetpack and a powerful robo-arm.
On top of that, they’ll have to utilise the wackiest kinds of blocks (magnets, rockets and even nuclear fusion are no strangers for a well-trained apestronaut), and work in exotic and not-really-monkey-friendly places. Who said space construction was going to be easy?
Bonkies features both single and multiplayer campaigns with tons of hand-crafted levels that require cooperation, quick wits, agility, and coordination to solve in time. Players can choose characters from a varied cast of lovable monkeys (and some other, equally adorable creatures). The game offers a challenging experience, but is first and foremost a light-hearted and joyful take on construction builders and couch co-op games.
