Move It Or Lose It
Moving Out
Kenneth Ang
Crazy as that might be, it’s all par for the course in Moving Out. This hilariously lovable physics simulator puts you (and your pals) into the shoes of a Furniture And Relocation Technician, or as you should have realised by now, a F.A.R.T.

After everyone’s done sniggering at their new job designations, here’s what you actually do in Moving Out. Basically, you work for a movers’ company, helping clients pack their stuff and bring it to their new homes. Sounds simple enough, but it’s not really what you do that’s amusing, but how. As the training module will tell you, breaking one or two windows and pieces of furniture is perfectly okay if it means you get the job done faster.

That’s about it for the main concept, but where the game starts going off the rails is when you have to do all of that while avoiding various obstacles and slapping pesky ghosts, not to mention maneuver deftly through increasingly convoluted levels. This is where teamwork or the absurd lack of it makes the game such a pleasure to play with friends. Plus, wrapping all that up are the amusingly crafted visuals, which are done in a style that blends elements from Animal Crossing and Overcooked!.
