When I first saw the news that there’s now a Shadow-Warrior-themed level for Viscera Cleanup Detail, I was surprised for all of 0.2 seconds. Then, with the speed of a magical sword severing an already spurting limb, the universe made perfect sense again. It’s a match made in heaven, and I don’t know why I didn’t realize it milliseconds sooner. Shadow Warrior leaves piping hot piles of plasma in every conceivable corner, and Viscera Cleanup Detail features the universe’s most formidable mop. And now they’re married! N’aaaaaaaw. See for yourself below.
If your objective in this clash of Super Serious Ultra-Grit Universes isn’t already obvious, perhaps this Hyper Blurb will help:
“After the battle is over, someone has to cleanup the mess! Introducing Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior from RuneStorm, a unique crossover mini-game that combines the worlds of Viscera Cleanup Detail and Shadow Warrior. Step into the rubber soled shoes of the hapless janitor tasked with cleaning up Lo Wang’s mess after a devastating katana battle in the collector’s temple from Shadow Warrior. Mop up pools of blood, dispose of body parts, and get the collector’s gallery of antiques in tip top shape as quick as possible! Successfully clean the entire temple and collect all the scattered cash to unlock two Steam achievements.”
If you purchase or already own Shadow Warrior, it’s immediately yours for free. I can’t find any real reason to object to that, especially since Shadow Warrior is – somewhat shockingly – actually really, really good.
So then, water you waiting for? Get it? That’s a little virtual janitorial humor, because you know, spray and buckets and stuff. Actually, that’s the only virtual janitorial humor. If you haven’t noticed, virtual janitors don’t have a lot to laugh about.
