Bonkies is a jolly, couch co-op party game with a pinch of construction building featuring space monkeys equipped with jetpacks and robo-arms. The wacky, banana-fuelled party couch co-op is wrapping up development and getting ready to monkey around on PC and consoles.
See the Bonkies Space Cadet field guide here:
Having heard the constructive and positive feedback from the Space Cadets playing the game in Steam’s Early Access and getting their jetpacks re-fuelled by Norwegian Game Awards, where Bonkies won Best Design and Player’s Choice, the game’s developers – Studio Gauntlet – now aim to bring Bonkies to world-wide audiences on PC and consoles. Bonkies will be helped in their mission to colonise gaming platforms around the cosmos by Crunching Koalas – a publishing studio with experience in bringing exceptional indie titles to console.
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.
