Geralt may appear in Soul Calibur VI but here are the characters we really want

This is Brendan, broadcasting live from rumour world, where everything is made of a nebulous candy floss-like substance. The locals call it “hope.” Amid this sticky cloud, a figure has formed. It’s Geralt of Rivia, hero of popular Gwent spin-off, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The monster-hunting swordsman will “make an appearance” in another game later this year, according to CD Projekt Red community lead…

Viscera Cleanup Detail adds graffiti to scrub in new level

To play Viscera Cleanup Detail is to be an enemy of environmental storytelling. It's a spacejanitor simulator where we sweep into levels and sweep away all the bodies, burns, blood, bullet holes, detritus, and alien goo that paints a clear picture of a terrible sci-fi incident. Once we're done, no one will ever know what will happened. (Well, unless we end up accidentally making even…

First-person renovator House Flipper looks ace

After the joys of cleaning up spaceguts in Visceral Cleanup Detail, I feel ready for something more constructive. I've mopped up blood and burned bodies but what do I have to show for it? A grubby office which my friends trash every time they visit. I feel ready for House Flipper [official site], a first-person renovator about smartening up homes by repairing, remodelling, painting, and…

Indie Legends 4 Bundle Includes Door Kickers, Skullgirls

I've grown immune to the draw of bundles as the number of them has increased, but the Indie Legends 4 Bundle has a good enough haul that it reminds of the early days of Humble. For €3.15 (around £2.62/$3.51) you get Viscera Cleanup Detail (with DLC), Door Kickers, Skullgirls, Sir, You Are Being Hunted, Reus, Lethal League, Party Hard, and Another World. I haven't played…

Viscera Cleanup Detail Adds New Level, New Choonz

Pip is on holiday this week but I'm already laughing imagining the fun we'll have with the new update for Viscera Cleanup Detail [official site]. Yes, a new level to clean is nice. Yes, it's nice that the Shadow Warrior spin-off is now merged into the main game. Mostly, though, I'm looking forward to annoying everyone with three new songs blasting out the Big Banger…

Feature: How games fit into relationships

Love And Games: Long Distance Wizard-Killing

I was in a long distance relationship for over two years and gaming was incredibly useful for keeping in touch with my partner*. But not every game was a good fit, either because of relative game experience or temperament or any number of other things. So here are some of the games which worked and some of the games which didn't. I'm going to explain…

Pip’s Games Of The Year Those Other Guys Missed

We made our list for Games of the Year or Bestest Bests or Advent Calendars or whatever it was but some of my candidates were missed off the list for NO GOOD REASON WHATSOEVER. I mean, fine, some of them were console games and some of them are from the wrong year but they're still games that were good this year and I still want…

First-Person Swabber: Viscera Cleanup Detail Released

When spacethings go spacewrong, call in a spacehero like Ian Doom to spacekill everything. Once that swaggering spacemurderer is done, though, you need the help of a real specialist: you need the Viscera Cleanup Detail [official site]. It's been a few years since I first picked up my trusty spacemop and bloodbucket in a prototype to clean up scenes of spacehorrors, long enough that I'd…

Space Paperwork: Viscera Cleanup Detail Adds Reports

Being a space janitor is pretty ruddy exciting, we can all agree. After an merry day of scraping guts out vents, mopping up blood, and collecting bullet casings, I need something slow and dull to unwind. And in the game. Viscera Cleanup Detail [official site] today added a little drudgery to its workload with post-cleanup incident reports full of boxes to tick and text areas…

The Curious Pull Of Viscera Cleanup Detail

She's even streamed it from her room and other people have watched her doing her fake cleaning. She and Alice investigate what's so enjoyable about mopping... Pip: ALICE.

The Lighthouse Customer: Viscera Cleanup Detail

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, space station sanitation in Viscera Cleanup Detail. I've been picking internal organs off the floor, mopping blood off the walls, cramming severed limbs and heads into an incinerator, and I've only just now noticed the shell casings, dozens of them, scattered around the room.…

Viscera Cleanup Detail Now Swabbing Steam Early Access

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…

Shadow Warrior + Viscera Cleanup Detail = All The Sense

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…

Satellite Reign, 7 Days To Die, Maia, More Greenlit

The Steam Greenlight machine keeps right on churning, and I have to say: it's getting a little more efficient. Initially, batches of new games were wheezing out in sickly trickles, but now we're getting 15-game shotgun bursts every couple weeks. There's still plenty of room for improvement of course, and it remains to be seen whether or not Valve can keep pushing this pace, but it's…

Viscera Cleanup Detail Now With Co-op, Cara Lawsuit

I put on my pants one leg at a time just like everyone else in the morning. Except then I just have really great ideas for games. [pats self on back] This game is Viscera Cleanup Detail, it's a first person spaceship janitor simulator and it's my absolute favourite game.
