'Bonkies' (ALL) Comes to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC This Summer - Screens & Trailer

Bonkies is a physics-based couch co-op space construction builder, featuring monkeys with jetpacks.

In Bonkies, you take control of highly trained monkeys equipped with powerful bionic arms and jetpacks. The game will take players on a journey through wacky construction sites located on various planets of our solar system, where they will have to cooperate to stack blocks to fit the outline in time (similar to another great co-op game, Snipperclips). To do so, the players will utilize special blocks and work in alien (and sometimes quite hostile) environments. The physics-based challenges can be tackled in single-player mode or teams of 2, 3 or 4 players.

Bonkies features both single and multiplayer campaigns with tons of hand-crafted levels that require quick wits, agility, coordination and planning to solve in time. Players can choose characters from a varied cast of loveable monkeys (and some other 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.

After gathering lots of positive and constructive feedback from the Steam Early Access community and winning Best Design and Player’s Choice at the Norwegian Game Awards, Studio Gauntlet is ready to bring Bonkies to world-wide audiences on PC and consoles. The game will be published by Crunching Koalas who already worked on games like Darkwood, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and Frostpunk.

The game is also participating in Digital Dragons Indie Celebration, an online event taking place between 13th and 15th of May. During this time, players will be able to check out an all-new demo and learn more about Bonkies.

Key Features:

  • Raise and accidentally topple stacked blocks with physics-based mechanics
  • Have fun with up to 3 friends or by yourself in single and multiplayer campaigns
  • Travel to the far reaches of the solar system and visit planets like Mars and celestial dwarfs such as Pluto
  • Tease your brain with tons of cleverly designed challenges
  • Make good use of a multitude of special blocks
  • Guide monkey astronauts with state-of-the-art equipment

Bonkies will be released on Xbox One, PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch and PS4 this summer!
