Team17 has announced that a free demo of SMG Studio and DevM Games’ frantic couch co-op game Moving Out is now available on Switch.

The game, which looks set to be a similar experience to the wonderful Overcooked series (albeit with more moving house and less cooking), is also now up for pre-order on the Switch eShop. Every player who pre-orders the game will receive access to the 'Employees of the Month Pack' DLC, which features a set of four exclusive movers - Professor Inkle the octopus, Bruce the koala bear, Sprinkles the doughnut, and Dials the CRT television.


If you need catching up on this one, here's a quick feature list:

Key Features
Couch co-op gameplay: Players can take on the challenge either alone or with up to three friends with local cooperative gameplay, helping or hindering each other as they shift a variety of objects
Location, location, location: F.A.R.Ts are ready to move anything in the town of Packmore and beyond. The Smooth Moves company is always ready to help!
Physics: Are pesky doors and windows standing in your way? Blast through them with physics, just be careful of any breakables!
Character customisation: From colour options to hijabs and wheelchairs, players can customise their technicians with a number of choices. Make your mover unique with a whole host of customisation options including hats, hair styles, and horticulture!
Assist Mode: Longer time limits, reduced difficulty, and level skipping are just some of the options to ensure that players of all ability levels can join in!
Accessibility: Dyslexia-friendly text, scalable user interface, and remappable keyboard controls are all featured so that everyone can enjoy the moving mayhem.

Moving Out launches on Switch on 28th April both digitally and physically. You'll be able to pick it up for £19.99 / €24.99 / $29.99.
