For those looking for a little more pressure, beat your scores in Challenge Mode!

LONDON (7th July 2021) – Today, independent developer FuturLab released their first content update for Steam Early Access title POWERWASH SIMULATOR. Published by Square Enix Ltd, the latest update (0.4) features new 'Challenge Mode', additional cleaning jobs, and some all-important community requested quality of life changes. POWERWASH SIMULATOR lets players wash away their worries with the soothing sounds of high-pressure water. Players can build their very own power washing business and blast away every speck of dirt and grime that they can find. With a unique take on the simulation genre, POWERWASH SIMULATOR focuses on player relaxation and escapism. 

For players looking for a little more pressure, new 'Challenge Mode' invites you to fight grime in different scenarios; by washing against the clock in Time Challenge or testing your accuracy by using as little water as possible in Water Challenge. 
"POWERWASH SIMULATOR can offer something for everyone, which is why we created 'Challenge Mode'," commented Lead Designer Dan Chequer. "With the deliberate exclusion of limits and time pressures in Career Mode, the new separate Challenge Mode evolved naturally to offer a light bit of competition for those who want it."

That's not all for the 0.4 Update! Get into the zen zone with more fantastically filthy things to clean; forage in the forest and help Hunter Lode clean his Treehouse, restore a well-travelled RV to its former glory and lend a helping hand to a ‘copter caked in ash! 

We've also added a whole host of quality-of-life changes to improve gameplay, such as a reworked soap system, support for up to 240FPS and an extra level of crouch to get to those hard-to-reach places. You can read all about our QOL changes in our latest Dev Log.

Finally, you too can have a ‘Hot PowerWash Summer’ and get the game at 15% off in the Steam Summer Sale ending July 8th!
