About This Game

Experience the unexpected thrill of a household chore in the latest next-generation AAAAA simulation experience: Dishwashing Simulator. New ground has been broken in the simulation genre, with a never-before-seen level of detail in the act of washing dishes. Explore a simulated world where every dish matters and survival hinges on your ability to keep things clean. Navigate through a twisted cycle of chores, rewards, and mysteries as you uncover the secrets behind your menial tasks.

  • Immerse yourself in an emergent simulation where gameplay mechanics interact in unpredictable ways.
  • Engage with an immersive physical interaction system.
  • Explore "The Depths,"  a procedurally generated dungeon.
  • Run, hide, and learn to survive various anomalies.
  • Light automation mechanics
  • Construct your base and production line, optimizing your dishwashing operations.
  • Survive by managing food, water, and agriculture.
  • Research using scrap to gain buffs or upgrades.
  • Unravel a short, but cryptic narrative.

Heads up: Dishwashing Simulator is NOT a full-blown automation game! It is a short-ish (4-6 hours) narrative survival horror game with some lite automation mechanics; don't expect a deep tech tree and hundreds of hours of gameplay!
