Major Update v1.05 at long last!

Greetings everyone!

Wow, it sure has been a long time, almost one and a half years to be exact...
At any rate, we finally have a major update for Santa's Rampage; version 1.05

The most important thing to know about this is that the game has been updated to the new base of Viscera Cleanup Detail.
This means all the same fixes and systems used in the main game are now present in this standalone.

Huge improvements have been made to the network, the physics, achievements, and various other things.

There are also many new features as a result.
Foremost among these is the "Office". No longer do you simply clock off and get a briefing on your performance, instead you are now taken to a separate level where you can keep items you bring with in your Janitor's Trunk. There you will be shown more detailed information about what you did wrong(if anything).

Another thing worthy of mention, the single male Janitor of the past has been given another 18 companions! You will randomly appear as one of 19 different Janitors, including 9 possible female janitors!

There are also a bunch of other features and countless new UI options, so go have a look!

A detailed change-log was not kept of the changes, as it's really hard to tell.
If there was one, it would be very, very long.

So there you have it. If other things need to be changed, there will be more updates to follow.

Enjoy everyone!

About This Game

Tragedy! Santa; the toy giving folk-hero, and purveyor of fine Christmas goods, has had enough. Endless requests from greedy children wanting more and more every year, tax increases, pressure from elf unions, bills, reindeer!

It is your duty, as an employee of Polar Sanitation Inc, to clean up the grizzly aftermath of Santa's bloody rampage. Elves, reindeer and ruined masonry from Santa's brief breakdown are all strewn across his famous workshop.

So don your cap, grab your mop, and get this place sorted out so the company can get a replacement in here ASAP, and restore Christmas for another generation!

  • Santa's Workshop - Explore Santa's infamous workshop and discover the story that lead up to the tragic events you're here to clean up.
  • Clean - It's your job to clean up the mess, so clean it up you shall! Use your trusty mop, gloves, dispenser machines and sniffer tool to help you get all that blood out of the floor! 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!
  • Multiplayer - You can even enlist some friends/coworkers to come and help you clean up (or make even more mess). Split-screen co-op is available too!

I asked my dad to buy this for me a while ago. I didn\'t know what \'Vicera\' meant at the time. When my dad say the name of it, he said. \'What the hell is this!!!\' \'Are you insane???? Viscera!?!?!??\'
I said \'it looks fun\' \' :)\'
He said \'yeah mk.\'
Then he bought it for me.
Just searched what \'Viscera\' meant.
I regret asking my dad to buy this for me.
Probably thinks i\'m insane

Uhm... it is a good cleaning simulator game!

I know you can't imagine playing a game where you have to clean, when you hate cleaning a huge mess in the real world. But the developers somehow made cleaning fun in this game! Even better and funnier with friends, because you can make a bigger mess, than the starting mess!

This is really fun for some reason, I like cleaning I guess.
This game will provide enjoyment for some reason or another.
It is not so much the cleaning up dead bodies; more the physics, the graphics, and the easter eggs, I find addicting. Plus, you get your own office with even more easter eggs, some unlockable.

There's something soothing about cleaning up ridiculous messes. This one is more fun than the other stand-alone game (Shadow Warrior), because there's a bigger variety of stuff to clean up. The achievements are good goal-setters, and I like that you have an office to accumulate trophies in.

A wonderful Christmas game for the holidays. Unique game that takes lots of planning and thinking on how to cover up murder. I liked it even if you only get a few hours of enjoyment out of it. This was really well done.

Viscera Cleanup Detail: Santa's Rampage is a cleaning simulator that has you going around and cleaning the aftermath of Santa's descent into elf murdering madness. How much destruction can a jolly old man cause you may be wondering? Well to put it lightly Santa put quite a bit of his free time into knife throwing lessons and has adorned the walls with bloody elf corpses. Limbs are everywhere, the rooms are smeared with blood and Santa even had to nerve to hide a few bodies as to avoid being charged with 100 murders because anything more than 99 is just barbaric. A nice little detail is that searching Santa's office will fill you in as to why he went postal and feel a bit sympathetic for the fat man until you realize that you stepped on some blood and created footprints all the way from the hall. It was around this point that I remembered I was a janitor, not a detective so I went on my merry way to get a bucket of water from this rather odd machine built solely to dispense buckets of water. Back into the room I go, I set down the bucket and turn back only to see a new set of footprints have been made on my way over here.

I clean and I clean until my mop starts making more of a bloody mess instead of cleaning any of it and I try to clean my mop in the bucket. As it turns out you have to be at just the right place to dunk it in water but foolish old me just started trying different buttons and ended up smacking the bucket right into Santa's desk and knocking over his whiskey bottles straight to the floor. So out I go to get another bucket of water and the machine plops out a raw hunk of bloody meat dirtying up the area even more. It is at this point that I slowly nod to myself, go back into Santa's office and threw a stack of TNT into the fireplace out of spite. I then left the job site and into the night as I started to realize this wasn't too bright. As you can imagine my boss was more than displeased and this good ole janitor was fired on Christmas Eve. Er, poor Christmas rhymes aside this is one title where you will want to pay attention as the slightest slip up can make the room messy again. As this game also features online coop this will be the perfect title to either work as a team or get them to hate you and your clumsiness.

Cleaning is a very time consuming process in this game. Your mop gets dirty and so does the bucket eventually, making you walk all the way back to get another one. Corpses are your biggest concerns as whenever you pick them up and accidentally bump them into something, blood splatters onto the surface of the area. The elves never run out of blood oddly enough so there is no limit to the amount of mess a single corpse can create. At first I simply stuck them into containers but they quickly all filled to the brim. I eyed the fireplace and as it turns out you are actually supposed to cremate them in there. It's not just the corpses and blood you must clean. You are supposed to burn everything from corpses, antlers, whiskey bottles and Santa's guns. If the cheery Christmas melodies start getting on your nerves you can simply toss the jukebox into the fire as well. Even the buckets with the bloody water must be burned. Everything must be burned and the fireplace can be quite some ways from where the mess is so you can stuff them into your giant storage box and carry them back. It would be far easier to simply burn the house down but oh well, that's the life of an underpaid janitor I suppose.

As you can no doubt tell by now this game is rather morbid and filled with dark humor. You don't even have to work if you don't want to, you can just toss elf corpse onto the table like if this was a wrestling game. Toss bottles, paint the room red with your bloody mop and stacking all the bodies near the entrance so however enters has one heck of a surprise are some of the things you can have fun with if you are not a cleaning kind of person. There is no price or anything other than achievements for cleaning so there is no real point for doing so unless you are really dedicated to your role of janitor. Only one map to explore and nothing to unlock so what you see is what you get. If you are taking the game seriously and are actually cleaning it should take you a bit over 2 hours to fully clean it if you are by yourself. It is quite a graphic intensive game due to all the objects that you can manipulate and looks pretty good as well however it is a fairly small map. All in all it is a rather enjoyable cleaning game with enough freedom to be able to easily get some decent entertainment for the price. It's not a game I find all to enjoyable personally but if you are in the market for a cleaning game based on the great elf massacre that drove Santa into being a dangerous fugitive then this is the game for you!

The Main Plot

Various notes and letters can be found in the workshop and office, implying that prior to the player's role in Santa's Rampage, Santa Claus had been under large amounts of stress from unpaid bills, outrageous requests from children, elf union strikes, and even threats. Santa subsequently snapped under the pressure, purchasing several crates of 12-gauge shotgun rounds, steak knives, and dynamite sticks, and fashioning several makeshift molotov cocktails (likely under the influence of alcohol). Santa then went on a murder spree, mutilating several elves and reindeer, and destroyed parts of his workshop in the process. He left the scene through unknown means.

After these events, the company "Polar Sanitation Co." employed the player and sent them to clean the workshop, where the player's role in Santa's Rampage begins.


For the ending of my review i can say that the developers did not do the normal online game, where each can play with friends or just a stranger who finds your game.
My mark is 8/10.
