Artificial companions are becoming more commonplace in our lives, including vacuum-cleaning robots. For many, they are useful helpers, and for some, almost like pets.

But what happens when robots become more than just daily, mechanical companions? What if they learn to develop their own will? Do robots already have consciousness that we fail to notice?

'Exit Staubi' is an interactive text adventure game that explores these questions. Players step into the role of a vacuum-cleaning robot on a quest to find the meaning of its 'life.'

Players start the game as the vacuum cleaner, experiencing the robot's daily life, making decisions, and thereby steering the story. The text adventure concludes with 5 different scenarios.
