Back in September, we announced that 3 million of you had embraced your power washing destiny and the challenge of cleaning up Muckingham (seriously, how is that place still dirty?!). Well, since then, we’ve over doubled that figure, with a total of 7 million players to date!
Whether you were sucked in by watching your favourite streamer play, reading the great reviews or by one of our collaborative Special Packs – thank you so much for playing! We’ve got heaps of awesome content coming in the remainder of 2023 for you to enjoy.
“With over 7 million players, we are honoured that so many people have found their zen with PowerWash Simulator. The strength in our community is palpable. Since we launched into Early Access, the support for our soothing sim has been immense, and we are extremely grateful that this has continued to strengthen past release.”– Kirsty Rigden, FuturLab’s Co-CEO and the mind behind the original idea for PowerWash Simulator.
Of course, with so many of you joining us, we’ve been expanding our team to make PowerWash the best it can be. New designers, writers, artists and even animators (observant players will have noticed their contributions in the Midgar Special Pack!) have all joined FuturLab over the past year to bring you even more filthy and fantastical things to wash.
We’ve also recently welcomed Steve Tinkler, in the new role of Chief Financial Officer at the studio. Steve has a background of working with fast growing entrepreneurial businesses, with previous roles including Director within Epic’s Strategic Finance team and CFO at Mediatonic, where he supported the business through the breakout success of Fall Guys.
“FuturLab has some incredibly exciting plans. I’m delighted to be working with James Marsden, Kirsty Rigden, Chris Mehers and the team to help support the next phase of our growth.”– Steve Tinkler, FuturLab’s CFO
“Having someone of Steve’s calibre and experience joining us as CFO is yet another sign of the strides we’re taking as a fast-growing self-funded studio and speaks to the ambition we have for the years to come.”– Chris Mehers, FuturLab’s COO.
As we write this, a gaggle of game devs from Team FuturLab are making their way to London for the MCV Awards, where we are nominated for Best Studio. The success of PowerWash Simulator has grown our studio from strength to strength over the past couple of years, and we know it’s largely thanks to you, the players. We hope that our continued support of the game, through expansions to the base game to securing exciting collaborations, continues to fuel your imagination and will to wash.
To all 7 million of you – thank you.
