Rumu, the sci-fi adventure starring a vacuum cleaner, releases next week
Announced in October, Rumu is a point-and-click adventure starring a sentient vacuum cleaner, set in an eerily deserted sci-fi Smart Home. If that is not a good elevator pitch, I do not know what’s. There’s additionally a cat in it. Oh, and it is releasing next week, on December 13.
For a detailed rundown of what it is all about, I spoke with the recreation’s lead designer at PAX in October (the recreation additionally ranked amongst the most promising we noticed at that conference). But should you did not learn that or do not need to, Rumu stars a vacuum cleaner by that title, navigating an isometrically-viewed Smart Home “littered with semi-intelligent devices to hack into and get to know”.
“When something draws you away from your home maintenance duties and into the hidden passageways and long forgotten rooms of the house, you’ll be faced with challenging moral dilemmas forcing you beyond your programming to uncover the truth about the love and loss of your elusive family,” so says the Steam description. It additionally has a cat in it.
Here’s the announcement trailer:
