Urgent maintenance required. Emergency evacuation recommended.

Interstellar Vacuum is a physics-based puzzle collect-a-thon starring Dusty, the last surviving cleaner robot aboard an abandoned spaceship.

Take control of Dusty's unique Suck Up and Spit Out abilities to collect floppy disks, cassette tapes, game controllers and more as you dispose them into garbage chutes.

Explore an abandoned space vessel inspired by escape rooms and help Dusty on his journey to a nearby planet.

Interstellar Vacuum was created in 6 weeks by first-year students at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment, Melbourne.
