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!
In these peculiar times, few things are as important as nurturing relationships with friends and family. Bonkies were made by a small, independent studio in Norway specifically to bring people together in joyful, cooperative challenges for up to 4 players. The game is packed with cute animals, brain-teasing missions and goofy mishaps, a perfect recipe for a peaceful evening with loved ones at home.
And for all those socially distancing, who and can’t sit down on the same couch together – play online through Steam’s Remote Play Together on PC!
Players will be able to secure a pre-order on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch with a -20% discount starting as soon as January 15th 2021!
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.
Bonkies is a labour of love of the passionate, norwegian team of developers forming Studio Gauntlet. It’s their first game, but already it’s gathered positive feedback during its Early Access stage on Steam and snatched the Best Design and Player’s Choice trophies at the 2018 Norwegian Game Awards
The game will be helped in its mission to colonise gaming platforms around the cosmos by Crunching Koalas – a publishing studio with experience in bringing exceptional indie titles to console.
