Press release


Square Enix Ltd. will publish FuturLab’s upcoming game PowerWash Simulator ​​​​​​​

LONDON (27th May, 2021) – Square Enix Collective and FuturLab are excited to announce that POWERWASH SIMULATOR, which has recently entered Steam Early Access on May 19th, will be published by Square Enix Ltd on Steam.

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.

The collaboration with Square Enix Collective will allow boutique studio FuturLab the creative freedom to further develop POWERWASH SIMULATOR, throughout early access and beyond.

FuturLab Founder and Creative Director James Marsden commented on the recent announcement. "Our original vision for POWERWASH SIMULATOR was to expand the game in ways that would appeal to a large audience, with the potential of licensed content. Square Enix Collective is the perfect publishing choice as we share a united vision regarding the future of the game."  Marsden further noted that "the creative opportunities that this collaboration opens up for us is incredible, and we're delighted to be working with such a renowned publisher."

“I knew as soon as I first played a pre-release build of the game, that POWERWASH SIMULATOR would become an incredibly satisfying and addictive – yet oddly soothing – experience!” added Phil Elliott, head of Square Enix Collective; “We can’t wait to see what people think of the game and look forward to supporting an ever-expanding experience in the years ahead.”

In POWERWASH SIMULATOR’s Steam Early Access, players can build their own power washing business as they complete a variety of dirty jobs across the dusty town of ‘Muckingham’. There are currently 17 jobs in career mode as well as one ‘Special Job’ where players can rove around Mars!
