Vita gets toilet-management sim Men's Room Mayhem

Upcoming game tasks players as the director of a restroom.

Indie publisher Ripstone Games has unveiled Men's Room Mayhem, a toilet-management simulator for the PlayStation Vita.

Ripstone boss Phil Gaskell describes the game as a mix of mobile hit Flight Control and 1971 movie Carry On At Your Convenience!

"In Men’s Room Mayhem you’re hired as the janitor of your very own chaotic men’s room. You’re responsible for directing patrons, keeping everywhere sparkling clean and steering patrons away from trouble," said Gaskell.

The game will also award score bonuses for observing etiquette, such as leaving a one urinal space between people going about their business. Waves of restroom visitors will increase as the game progresses, making the game more difficult. Players will control the comings and goings of the toilets by using the Vita touchscreen.

Men's Room Mayhem is being published by Ripstone and developed by Sawfly Studios, an indie team made up of ex-Studio Liverpool staff. Ripstone has previously overseen the release of Big Sky: Infinity and Knytt Underground.

No release or price for Men's Room Mayhem was mentioned by Sony.

oh ok, this solves the lack of titles on the VITA....cuz i mean when i am shelling out for a hign end portable, i'm not in the market for AAA titles. Shareware mobile titles will justify the price tag.

I'd rather just become a janitor and get paid to do all those things.

It looks like it will be a crappy game.  One that will piss me off with it's game play.  they should have flushed the whole idea and cleaned up the concept.   really though I don't think I could plunge myself into this game.

They'll probably stall this game until there's enough time to flush out the bugs

If gaming industry is going this far, then might as well make Sex Simulator game.

Wow, maybe the Wii U will get a game about a guy who has to use his imagination because he has no games to play. (easy kids, just a joke)

Man this game is so British. Sounds like it could be a laugh.

I don't think Sony thought this thing through when they let the devs put this game on their machine.  Surely given the state Vita's in right now, they would have thought people would make comments like this.

@berserker66666 Sadly, thats an actual genre in region 4. Its large enough to have underage school girls, underage school girls w/ tentacle rape, underage school girls + demonic/bestiality components, and homoerotic schoolboys/young professionals as subgroups. 

I wish i was being sarcastic but thats how they roll across the oceans.....

@hadlee73 You can never have enough jokes to describe the crap shape the system's in when reading about a toilet simulator.

@psx_warrior @hadlee73 Damn! When you mentioned "shape" you reminded me, I could have said "Well Sony's come full circle now; The first PlayStation looked like a toilet, and now..." :P

@snova9308 @Salanderr @joel_c17 

20 games on MC that have an average over 80 - plus there are plenty of games in the 7-8 range that i think are pretty good also. All personal opinion i guess.

its been over a year since its release, and you can count the 'good games' with just the fingers in your hands. dont you think its about time the library actually expands?
