What the developers have to say:

“So you've elected to support development of Viscera Cleanup Detail by getting the Early Access build, great! There are a few things to keep in mind however, as we continue development, fix bugs, add content and polish it all up.
  • It's still in development, so it has issues, especially regarding network.
  • You might want to think twice about buying this now if you're looking for a polished product. However, if you want to support us and provide feedback for the game's development, we'd be super grateful!
  • The price will increase as it gets closer to the finished game.
  • Everything is subject to change; your favourite feature could be eradicated.

As we proceed with development, the major improvements you will see will be relating to new and improved maps, bug fixes and polish. New content will primarily be focused on creating interesting environments for our players to experience.

And on a final note, mod support will be coming very soon! So you'll be able to craft your own space-station massacres; hooray!”

V0.33 live and some words:

Hey ya'll!

Today we bring a new update; Hydroponic Hell


Major additions include the new greenhouse map, and some funky mechanics to go with that ;) We've made some large changes to the office and saving, which means CORRUPTION! RUINED SAVES! DISASTER!

But, we also bring; Editor support! Oh yes! If you know UDK, or are willing to learn, you can now create your own maps! We'll be adding Workshop support as soon as we can as well. But for now, you'll have to find alternate means of hosting your maps :\ Also, more info on exactly how to package and prepare your maps for public release will follow :)

TO BE CLEAR! IMPORTANT: Janitor Office no longer saves automatically, either save it manually or enable Auto-Saving. Old save data may also be horribly corrupted!
To delete old saves, find the game's install directory, under "\Saves\" delete Save0.sav to remove level saves, and OfficeData.sav to remove Janitor office data.

And now some words!
-----
With this update, we'll be taking a bit of a breather, during which time, we'll try and get the Mac build working, finish up Rooks Keep and take a few days off. There will be no more major updates until those two things are done :) Trading cards and Workshop support may make an appearance during this time, otherwise it'll come in a later update.
Also, before the next big update, we will be increasing the price ($10). Before that happens, we're going to try and make sure that the Mac build either works, or makes it known that it won't behave well enough to make it :\

Changelog:

  • New 'Hydroponic Hell' map and mechanics.
  • Editor support!
  • Added several notes and announcement screens to Athena's Wrath.
  • Fixed Athena plants preventing you from picking up stuff stuck in them.
  • Improved Zero-G speedrun par time, you now have %35 more time to clean it.
  • Made some fairly major changes to the Janitor Office...muhahaha
  • Added flares and explosives to Unearthly Excavation.
  • Fixed the malcontent lockers in the Janitor Office.
  • Added Flares to Waste Disposal
  • Prevented use of Cheats such as 'fly' and 'killnearestmess' while in Speedrun mode.
  • Made the bucket reflect the color of filthy objects dropped into it, and not just always red.
  • Added flares to the supply machines.
  • Fixed players in MP not having the right colors when going to the office.
  • Fixed bloody footsteps not saving their color.
  • Added a 'Team Size' display to the Speedrun Punchout machine.
  • Made 'Par time' display adjust according to extra players.
  • Fixed "Restore >>" button on the Main Menu next to 'Speedrun' appearing when there is no save data.

Oh, and have some screenhots:


Thanks everyone, and we shall see you soon enough! :)

PS: Lets see some kick-ass maps too, please!

Update v0.32 up!

Hello mop-bearing minions!

Another small update this week, as we attempt more regular, smaller updates each week (when not drowning in admin work). List of changes below!

  • Employee of the Month photo now remains in the office, allowing you to accumulate several.
  • Fixed a problem in Athena's Wrath which caused some alien blood to appear Red instead of Green.
  • Fixed spelling error in Athena's Wrath briefing.
  • Improved player ability to handle heavy objects(Large Alien bits, Worker Legs, etc), now more manageable and more visible when held.
  • Increase Speedrun mode difficulty by %50!
  • Made speedrun take multiple players into account, each additional player now makes the score drop an extra %75 faster.
  • Added a "Time Par" display to the speedrun stats, shows the expected time limit.
  • Fixed the Rules menu not updating when you tick the Multiplayer box under the Speedrun section.
  • Fixed map preview images sometimes not buggering off when you mouse over other buttons.
  • Fixed a bug causing a Multiplayer Speedrun match to be hosted instead of a Singleplayer one.
  • Improved visibility of "Exceptional" cleaning text on punchout screen during Speedrun mode.
  • Added a setting for changing speedrun difficulty by altering the time allowance.

And that's it for today! We've got another tool in the works (the J-HARM ;) ), an expansive new map/environment complete with some neat mechanics to go along with it, and an extra small map or two ;)

Thanks ya'll, and keep up the good work! :)

Reviews

“You know what I really love about violence? Dealing with the consequences! That’s why I’m so excited to see that Viscera Cleanup Detail, the space station janitor simulation, is now available on Steam Early Access.”
PCGamer

“By setting its mundane stall in the days after events that would be taken oh-so-seriously in another game, Viscera Cleanup Detail manages to be morbidly hilarious without ever telling a single joke.”
EuroGamer

About This Game

Disaster! An alien invasion and subsequent infestation have decimated this facility. Many lives were lost, the facility was ruined and the aliens were unstoppable. All hope was lost until one survivor found the courage to fight back and put the aliens in their place!
It was a long and horrific battle as the survivor duelled with all manner of terrifying life-forms and alien mutations, but our hero won out in the end and destroyed the alien menace! Humanity was saved!

Unfortunately, the alien infestation and the heroic efforts of the courageous survivors have left rather a mess throughout the facility. As the janitor, it is your duty to get this place cleaned up.
So grab your mop and roll up your sleeves, this is gonna be one messy job.
Today, you're on Viscera Cleanup Detail!

Key Features


  • Janitorial Simulation - Step into the boots of a space-station sanitation technician and deal with the horrific aftermath of a sci-fi horror event. Blood, viscera, spent cartridges, worker bodies and other messes litter the facilities.
  • Clean - It's your job to clean up the mess, so clean it up you shall! Use your trusty mop, gloves, dispenser machines, plasma laser and sniffer tool to help you get all that blood out of the floor and off the ceiling! You can even try and punch-out if you think you've done your job.
  • Sandbox Gameplay - Don't want to clean? Just want to make more of a mess and play around with the physics? Go ahead! You can save your game as well; that's kind of us!
  • Multiplayer - Note: MP is still being worked out and may have issues still.
    You can even enlist some friends/coworkers to come and help you clean up (or make even more mess).

This is my space mop.

There are many like it.

But this one is mine.

Without my space mop I am useless.

Without me, my space mop is usless.

I shall take my space mop into the worst places imaginable.

With proper training and care we can make it out alive, with no injuries or complaints.

If not, the union has my back...

Early Access Review
Most realistic janitor sim ever when you play with friends. Everyone starts the day trying their best to clean up, and you even start divvying out jobs like bucket brigading or mopping while someone else gets you water/boxes to help put stuff away. And then someone discovers that the equipment dispenser can fire like a cannon. Or that it'd be cute to make a mess behind the guy cleaning up. Or you try and slam dunk buckets into an incinerator and one gets stuck in the rafters, so you have to start stacking crates to get up there. My mate Charlie even got so into it that he started doing sick tricks like putting buckets on the heads of corpses and doing live puppet shows for us with them. And Jamal thought it'd be 'real pimp' to stack a bucnh of buckets until they fall over and completely cover the floor in blood. But hey, what are friends for.

Ridiculously useless. 10/10.
