House Flipper comes to mind, since you repair the home by fixing/cleaning things up.
Also Rumu features a vacuum cleaner as the main character.


Cool, thanks!


Jalopy - The Road Trip Driving Indie Game - you have to clean your car every once in a while.




Nice. I also found Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior in my library, I assume it’s the same as the other ones so you can add it to the list.

Would the 12 Labours of Hercules type of games count? For the most part you are cleaning debris off the roads.

Nice idea on the 12 Labours of Hercules games.


I wasn’t sure about the Shadow Warrior thing, since it comes free with the main game, but added it if it’s a separate thing.
And I added the Hercules games - I wasn’t sure about those either, so I tried one and accidentally finished it XD


The Silent Age also fits the theme, as the main character is a janitor.


perfect, thanks!


If Katamari is there on the list, then maybe also Donut County, as the premise is similar.


yes, thanks!

iirc, in Psychonauts you clean up people’s minds. I’m not sure if there’s enough there for the theme, though, since it’s been a while.

You clean up stuff in a way in Pickers and put broken things back together to sell.

The Wonderful End of the World is a Katamari knock off, so it should count.

Cinders and other Cinderella-related games. She is basically a janitor.


I didn’t add Psychonauts, as it’s a bit too far from the theme imo, but added the rest, thanks! (don’t know any other Cinderella games off the top of my head, maybe I’ll add some later though, there mus be more …)

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek has you playing undercover as a maid, so you have to keep up on chores in the lodge.


MOP Operation Cleanup - literally clean up :)
The House in Fata Morgana has a maid as some kind of guide / character of importance through the game


great, thanks!
