Today’s Daily news: release date for Bonkies, but also…
- Moving Out
- Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
Team17 have announced that a meaty Software update for Moving Out is in the works, called “Moving In”. It will be released soon, and will have more content, accessibility options, and more.
Here’s a trailer and some details the update:
The ‘Moving In’ update is available in 12 of the game’s original levels and gives players the new task of unpacking the van and placing items into their new homes; it also adds a new ‘auto snap’ option to the assist mode to help players position items exactly where they’re needed. The update also adds the option for players to customise their character’s shirts, and debuts two brand-new dance moves – The Prospector and Loveshack!
- Couch co-op: Players can either take on Moving Out solo or enlist the help of up to three friends in local multiplayer co-operative gameplay, as they figure out how to get items into the removals van in the quickest way possible!
- Location, location, location: No move is too big, too small, or too weird. Work through sleepy suburbs, frenzied farms, haunted houses and even head into space to keep customers happy!
- Physics: Need to get a large item of furniture down some steps? Gravity is a F.A.R.T’s best friend. Glass door in the way? Smash right through it. Throwing things over railings will always be quicker than carrying them the long way around.
- Character customisation:Choose from a roster of movers from humans to anthropomorphic animals and appliances that can be tailored to suit the job at hand.
- Assist mode: Increased time limits, skippable levels and removal of dangers are just some of the options available in assist mode.
- Accessibility options: Dyslexia-friendly text, scalable user interface, and remappable keyboard controls on Steam make the Moving Out experience as inclusive as possible.

Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
Team17 have announced that Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos will be released on February 23rd worldwide. Players who want to get an early taste of this co-operative multiplayer roguelite can download a demo version, now available for download worldwide.
Set in the world of Tasos, which is under threat from the menace of conquering Titans, the demo introduces players to the mystical overworld and the first of the game’s puzzle-filled, procedurally-generated dungeons. Adventurers can play the demo solo or with up to three other heroes in local co-op multiplayer, with the full game taking the journey online for four players too.
Also, the full game is now available for digital pre-order worldwide, with the following as bonuses:
- Bomber class
- alongside exclusive weapon skins
- furniture that players can use to accessorise their in-game home.
Finally, here’s the latest trailer, some details, the list of key features:
Beyond the challenge of the dungeons, Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos features the titular overworld of Tasos, which is filled with its own many secrets, as well as the village of Intori. The settlement can be rebuilt, expanded, and developed throughout the course of the game, which will help the player in their quest, like a Blacksmith that improves the sword, a Clinic that bolsters health, and much more. Heroes can also prepare for the challenges that lay ahead by unlocking and honing new abilities through the game’s skill tree and its variety of character customisation options.
- Four-player co-op adventuring: Up to four players can explore the lands of Tasos and tackle the dungeons, assisting and reviving each other to earn victory together
- Roguelite dungeon-crawling: Take on procedurally-generated dungeons packed with a variety of monsters, earning gems to spend on upgrades to get further in the next run
- Town and class upgrades: Each run in the dungeon earns gems to spend on upgrades, including the facilities in the town, as well as player abilities and stats
- Classic gameplay reinvented: This is top-down adventuring brought into the modern day with colourful visuals and a number of options for combat, puzzle-solving, and exploration.
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos (Switch – eShop) comes out on February 23rd worldwide.
