This is the month of exciting announcements at Robot House!
We've been totally blown away by the positive reception to our announce trailer, and we can't wait to show people the game for the first time at PAX Australia next weekend. (We'll be booth #57 in PAX Rising, stop by and play Rumu!)
We've been working with Australian propmaster Piltover City Customs to bring Rumu to life! See below how Tim took our robot son and brought him into full gleaming reality.
"It's equally daunting and satisfying to create something as unique as Rumu. His expressiveness and charm comes from the love and care put into the game, and Robot House have been so supportive in helping me bring their creation to life. Coming from a cosplay background, it isn't often I get to look at something I've built and say "There's nothing else like this". It's a feeling I'm very grateful for. I love Rumu."
- Tim Nicholas
Tim took our in-game model and got stuck into 3d printing, laser cutting, LED programming and what we're told was an inhuman amount of sanding.
Seeing Rumu come to life has been a surreal experience for the whole team - the build updates Tim sent us during development always made our day.
Up next: Rumu isn't Rumu without his expressive little eyes and a full range of movement. Stop by our PAX booth to see the final product in action!
You won't be able to take Rumu home with you, but we will have a range of robot vacuum swag for those who get in early.
Meet Rumu @ Booth #57, PAX Rising
PAX Aus, Melbourne Oct 27-29
