In Viscera Cleanup Detail, you step into the boots of a space-station janitor tasked with cleaning up after various horrific sci-fi horror events. Instead of machineguns and plasma-rifles, your tools are a mop and bucket. That hero left a mess, and it's up to you to deal with the aftermath.

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!”

V0.44 update live!

Greetings everyone!

This week's update brings with it a funky radio at last! We've also added some more janitor variations and a few fixes. Read on!

Changelog:

    Maps:
  • Fixed invisible footsteps appearing in Gravity Drive and Zero-G Therapy.
  • Fixed Gravity Drive and Zero-G therapy harming the punchout score even if the correct gravity is active.

    Game:
  • Added the Janitor's personal "Big Banger" radio/boombox sound system of pure evil!
  • Added another 3 Janitor Head skins and a new Body skin!
  • Made Lanterns toggleable by holding down the 'Grab' key.
  • Fixed blood splats of different colors caused by footsteps or the mop not being saved.
  • Fixed Trophies not being deleted from office when fired.
  • Fixed PIDs not saving employee names and coloring between sessions.

    UI:
  • Fixed office not displaying the correct completion time on the Report screen.

    Workshop:
  • Creators will now have to specify the punishable gravity volumes in their map info.
  • Unsubscribed Workshop items will now be removed.

We're still busy working on getting the Mac build behaving. Really hoping I can get something out for it this coming week. We'll also be looking into merging the spin-off titles into VCD in some way as well.
The Robot map is going well too, when we get time to work on it. It'll be quite something when it's done >:) Other elements, such as fixes, the UI overhaul and more achievements, will start making an appearance soon as well. We're getting close to a 1.0 release!

Let us know what you think of the update. Cheers!

Update v0.435 live!

Hey hey!

*EDIT* The Report Form screen in the Office could be broken... Oh dear! We'll see if we can get it sorted soon!
*EDIT 2* Alright, updated again with fixes!

Another week, another update; hooray! Mostly just fixes and stuff, especially for the Gravity Drive map.

Changes:
Maps:

  • Fixed Gravity Drive problems, including Airlock, lift and gravity. [Will only work for new sessions]
  • Added Notes to Gravity Drive level.
  • Added Stacking areas to Gravity Drive level.
  • Private Game is now on by default [Anyone who wants to host a public game must now un-check the box under the rules menu]
  • Trophies taken to the office are now stored in a new save file. Makes it safe to clear the office save data, and it safeguards against corruption from updates.
  • Added a screen to the office where you can view all your punchout report forms.
  • Added an Achievement for completing 'Gravity Drive'

As usual, plenty more changes coming up. We've got the major new map still in the works (it'll be the last 'big' map), the radio and assorted tunes I'm making, more janitor customization, oodles of fixes and so on!

Seeya next week, or the next, or something (depending on the additions)!

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).

Important:

Buying Viscera Cleanup Detail also gets you our spin-off titles, 'VCD: Shadow Warrior' and 'Santa's Rampage' free!
