Have you ever thought to yourself: “Hey! Wouldn’t it be fun to make, or play, a video game about renovating an apartment?” Likely not. Then again, it’s unlikely that many thought anything similar about a game where friends would work together to cook food. Then Overcooked happened, and it proved to us that good gameplay, and some artistic license, can make even a (seemingly) dull job into great fun.
Today, The Knights of Unity and All In! Games teamed up to introduce their new effort: Tools Up! A couch co-op game about renovating apartments. Also one that has obviously learned a thing of two from Overcooked.
Here’s how the press release describes it:
Assemble up to four friends and race against the clock to move and renovate an apartment. Will they still be your friends afterward? Who’s to say. But hey, at least you all spent some quality time together as you tear down walls, lay tiles, and throw tools to each other, hoping to not make it messier than it was before.
It also lists the key features as:
- Goofy, lovable, diverse cast of characters.
- Fulfil the blueprints… or don’t! Design the apartments of your dreams.
- Throw things to people across the room. Heck, throw people across the room too!
- Rich and varied props, environments, and weather.
- All levels unlocked in Party Mode.
We must admit: It looks pretty fun, too.
Tools Up! will launch this December, and is prepping for renovations on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and Windows.
