Couch co-op takes on the Solar system!


Heads up! Bonkies will get a major update in the next two months – find us on social media or our website to learn more about Project Overlord.


  • Bonkies is best played with Xbox and Playstation gamepads! These gamepads can be combined with a keyboard, using a 2-players-1-keyboard solution. 
  • As we continue to update the game to give you the best experience, save-data may be deleted when we release a new update (but we will try our very best not to).


Bonkies is an award winning, family friendly game for 2-4 players where cooperation is key!
You will be solving a variety of different physics based construction puzzles on sites all over the Solar System. To complete the challenges, you must communicate as a team, master your Bonkie’s robot arm, jetpack and be careful with your brittle helmet. While attempting that, you will also try to put the building blocks in the right spot before the timer runs out, simple, right? Great! Now get out there and help build the future of humanity!


It is the future and Earth isn’t doing too good. The human race is getting desperate in the search for a way to colonize the Solar System. So far, human workers have proved too emotionally unstable to handle the isolation, and robots and their AI managed to render themselves useless through impressively efficient labor union negotiations.

While being bogged down paying out severance packages for trillions and trillions of nanorobots, the various space agencies joined forces in coming up with a new colonization program with three conditions: No humans, no robots, no budget. After months of work they proudly announced their solution: Bonkies – Cybernetically enhanced astronaut monkeys, with a crash course in civil engineering.

The promise of the Bonkie-program raised instant enthusiasm! Soon, people would be able to leave Earth and start fresh in on a new planet (or moon)! Soon, stores had sold out all their Bonkies themed t-shirts and plushies! Work started at once, monkeys were recruited from jungles and zoos all over the world, shipped off to training camps and prepared for the glorious task at hand! As we speak, Bonkies are being sent to various planets (and moons) in our Solar System, where they will await deployment. Humanity holds its breath!
