Viscera Cleanup Detail Now Swabbing Steam Early Access

By Alice O'Connor on April 7th, 2014.

Wouldn't touch that with a fifty-foot Super Mop

Casting players as space-janitors cleaning up after an alien attack, Viscera Cleanup Detail is pretty great as one-note wacky physics sim jokes go. Now let’s go one step further. Imagine playing as the dying lab technician without whom the space marine hero would be lost. Dragging useless gnawed legs behind her, she leaves diary entries hinting at puzzle solutions, scrawls cryptic warnings in her own blood, and plants supplies. Stack chairs and crates to reach odd hiding spots, hunt down iron tablets to top up her blood ink, and sacrifice everything to ensure that bumbling dolt triumphs. An idea for me to make in the next Peter Molydeux game jam, perhaps. Anyway.

For those who insist upon only buying games on Steam, keeping their games library as tidy as their space station, Viscera Cleanup Detail is now on Steam Early Access.

Viscera Cleanup Detail Now With Co-op, Cara Lawsuit

Clean Of Duty: Viscera Cleanup Detail

By Craig Pearson on July 11th, 2013.

War Mop
I am that odd middle point in life. I’m old and grumpy, but I don’t have kids. So when I play a game where insides are spilled, the walls are sticky with gore, and horrific violence is rendered in 1920×1080, I don’t think of the children. I think of the janitors. Someone is going to have to clean all that up. There’s innards on the outside, the Trafalmadorian ambassador is coming over any minute, and the guy with the guns and helmet just walks away and leaves it all for muggins. There’s a toe in the chronosynclastic infundibulum, for crying out loud! Oh no, by all means have all the fun, but when it comes to the real work they leave it for for the Viscera Cleanup Detail crew to soak up the blood and pick up the wobbly bits. It’s up to you to make it right.
