Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a Roomba and vacuum the floors of people’s rooms? No? Well, with Robot Vacuum Simulator 2013, you can find out anyway! The game is surprisingly not the first of its kind in existence, and actually a sequel to Robot Vacuum Simulator 2012.

Besides being a “groundbreaking simulator taking place in the incredible world of Robot Vacuum cleaners,” it’s also got one of the best feature lists on its official website:


  • The most realistic robot vacuum simulator ever.
  • Incredible single-player simulation
  • Duel with your friends in 2 player mode
  • A fully open world
  • Fantastic music
  • A main menu

A main menu? That’s pretty awesome. I think a main menu would be quite necessary to play a video game actually, and I’m glad they’ve included one. In addition to that, Robot Vacuum Simulator 2013 is already racking up the awards despite just being released. Check these out:


  • The first anual robot vacuum simulation prize
  • Game of the year 2013
  • Best simulator of 2013
  • Best sequel awards

Yeah, I’m sure games like Bioshock Infinite or The Last of Us couldn’t hold a candle to a game that “sends you on a journey through an apartment cleaning up the dust of man.”

In all seriousness though, if you think this looks like it could be fun to try out, the game is a FREE download for both Windows and Mac.
