Why do so many people love watching videos of manual labor, skilled labor, perfect fits, and oddly satisfying moments? Why is it so relaxing to watch someone else vacuum the cat hair off of their carpet? This game is a satire of this world of virtual labor, with its own narraive of corruption and contamination. Who cleans the cleaners?
