It’s EGX 2019 weekend! Over the next few days we’ll be bringing you quickfire impressions of some of the highlights from the show floor here at London’s ExCel centre. You’ll find them all here – and if there’s anything out there you want to bring to our attention let us know!

This is Moving Out, a chaotic Overcooked-alike about picking up furniture from a building and hucking it onto a removal van with naught but the clock to worry about.

Moving Out is very silly, but it is also genuinely good. The foundations are there, I think, for that kind of party game, extremely-let’s-play-friendly kind of success. One to four of you can play, and as is always the case with these games, the more the merrier. There is a slap function and friendly fire is very much “On”, so you will frequently stop a second just to stun your mates, because, well, I don’t know – a bit like zapping someone in the back in Magicka, if you ever played it. But it’s actually there to add a little bit more flavour to your obstacles: one level we played was a haunted house, complete with a garden ghost that’s protecting a cardboard box and blocking a shortcut to a record time, until you distract or stun it out the way.
