Do you have dreams of renovating apartments with your friends? Just can't seem to find the right time to do it? Fret no more, for Tools Up is coming to answer your oddly specific prayers.

Tools Up is described by its creators All In! Games and The Knights of Unity as "a top-down action game about fixing flats with friends". That's 'flats' in the UK sense, so apartments. The game is coming this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It'll support up to four players in couch co-op, an aspect the dev is keen to emphasize. The goal in Tools Up was to make couch co-op accessible to the whole family, leading to a game you can play with your kids or even your grandparents. Here's a trailer:

In Tools Up, you and up to three others will renovate apartments while their tenants are away. This involves ripping off wallpaper, busting down doors and walls, and putting down vibrant carpets and paneling. There'll be a time limit to work towards and you'll need to clean up after yourself once you're done. Tools Up will initially offer a choice between four characters, with more to be unlocked as the game progresses. The creators intend levels to take around 3-6 minutes, with the finished game featuring around 30 levels. You won't need to fully complete renovations to finish levels. The Knights of Unity are eager to stress that their game is appropriate for casual gamers, so it won't be too demanding.

Tools Up will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this year. We don't have a concrete release date yet, but you can wishlist the game right here on Steam if you're interested.
