Rumu is a single player, point and click, narrative-driven adventure game about a robot vacuum cleaner becoming self-aware under the watchful eye of the house AI, Sabrina.

You are RUMU - a robot designed to clean, and to love.

You awake in a fully automated Smart Home. Your only companions are Sabrina, the house AI and watchful guide, and the home’s dysfunctional cast of semi-intelligent devices.

(And Ada, the cat.)

It’s your job to keep the home spotless, cleaning up after your eccentric creators David and Cecily.

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.

Rumu combines some superb character work and heady sci-fi themes into a heart-wrenching story about love, family, and loneliness.

There may be much of Rumu's narrative that is not wholly original, but the story excels as it engages modern human sensibilities.

Rumu is slightly held back by easy puzzles, but the fantastic story, wonderful character development, and lovely audio video package do a lot to make this robot's journey of self-discovery worth it.

Rumu made me fall for this cute little vacuum cleaner -- I adored it. The little bleeps whenever I told someone I loved them -- heart melts. But the game also tackles a subject matter I'm highly interested in, especially in today's age of technology. It also challenges and poses interesting questions about human emotions and by the final moments, I was genuinely moved. Some of Rumu's final words before the game's end really hit me. All of this from a game about a cleaning appliance.
