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.

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