Reviews

“Rumu successfully splits the difference between genre fiction flash and the emotional explorations of, say, Gone Home. It combines the deft touch of Town of Light with traditional RPG puzzles. It even has some notable nods to arcade games. In short: it’s a game for partisans on all sides of the videogame debates to sit down for a Christmastime truce with.”
Gamasutra

“A fascinating look into emotional manipulation, familial relationships, and ultimately, loneliness.”
Gamespot

“Rumu is as charming as games can get. Not only does the game look and sound amazing, the writing is brilliant.”
Kotaku Australia

About This Game

Rumu is an intimate, narrative-driven single player adventure game where you play as a robot vacuum cleaner on it's journey in becoming a Sentient machine while under 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 created by your eccentric Human's David and Cecily where you discover your only companions are Sabrina, the house AI, the always watching guide, and the home’s dysfunctional cast of semi-intelligent devices, as well as Ada the cat.

After curiosity draws you away from your standard home maintenance duties, you’ll be faced with challenging moral dilemmas forcing you beyond your programming to uncover the the dark secrets kept from you by Sabrina.





  • A heart wrenching narrative that takes you from basic robot vacuum cleaning duties to discovering the truth

  • Performances from Allegra Clark (Dragon Age), Larissa Gallagher (Firewatch), Grant George (Fire Emblem Echoes)

  • An engrossing original score by Matt Mclean (Orwell)

  • A Smart Home littered with semi-intelligent devices to befriend

  • Point and click puzzles to lead Rumu down forgotten paths

  • A cozy isometric like dollhouse environment

  • Fully Subtitled in English





Robot House is a small Sydney-based team of developers.

We set out to carve our own path in games and give players experiences they aren't expecting. From the ridiculous to the remarkable, quality and heart are the core of what we build.

Rumu is our debut feature length title, and we're thrilled to bring it to likeminded players who have a thirst for intimate, narrative-driven experiences.
