Upcoming Changes/Releases

Greetings, hard working Janitors!
I hope everyone had a good, and decidedly spooky Halloween.

Well, it's certainly been a while since the last update, but we've got some exciting developments taking place!

New Content

First up, we have a new DLC level in the works.
Similar to House of Horror, it will feature a single large level with a new and unique setting, some new gameplay features and generally all the other bells and whistles that come with its new theme.
  • Achievements
  • Collectibles
  • Music
  • A satisfying feeling

Along with the large DLC, we're adding two more free maps:

  • One is a backwater jail subjected to something rather unfortunate.
  • The other is an energy facility that may have stumbled upon something it didn't count on.
There are some interesting new features in there as well.

Now on to the second order of business, and it's an important one if you subscribe to any VCD workshop items, or create them.
We're replacing the old(and pretty faulty) system with something new and better.
For subscribers, it'll still work similar to the old one, but it'll be more stable and give you a bit more info.

For creators, there are some significant changes.
There is now an interface for uploading mods, and the upload process and linking has gotten a bit clearer.

Unfortunately, this all comes with some problems...

Unforeseen Consequences

As a consequence of the workshop system changing. All existing mods will become unavailable to subscribers. At least at first.
Needless to say, this is utterly horrible...

All workshop creators will be required to re-upload their mods once the changeover occurs, before anything will be available to subscribers again.

We're going to do our best to make this transition as smooth as possible for everyone involved, so if you are a workshop creator and want to find out all the info and give us your thoughts, then please proceed to this thread:

We're not yet fully committed to the changeover, so if enough of you think it's a bad idea, or it proves too buggy, we'll stick with the old system.
Please let us know what we can do to help you migrate your mods, and what concerns you have.

More Workshop

Along with the system change, we've also been taking special note of the needs of workshop creators and are including a slew of improvements and fixes in the next update. If you would like to put forth ideas on things that will really help you, then head on over to this thread:

Some Better News

Besides all these workshop changes going on, we've also got a cluster of fixes for VCD. Many were aimed at smoothing out the rough edges. Some attention was paid to Multiplayer syncing, and also to speed-run stuff.
More in the works, as always.

Now, VCD isn't the only thing we've been busy with. Oh no.
We've actually been tinkering with a number of other projects.
Some are further developed than others, but all of them have been a learning experience as well as helping us narrow in on a favourite.

We'll have something eventually. Things are still very much up in the air at the moment I'm afraid, but it's for a good cause. We're still as busy as ever.

Right, well that's about it.
Send us your thoughts! They fuel the Argent Reactor that powers our machines.

Clean well!

“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.”

“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.”

About This Game


Please note that the OS X version does NOT have various Steam functionality, including: multiplayer connectivity through Steam, Workshop or Steam Achievements. Please see the community page for more details:

The 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 dueled 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 - 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!


Buying Viscera Cleanup Detail also gets you our spin-off titles, 'VCD: Shadow Warrior' and 'Santa's Rampage' free!
Santa's Rampage comes included in the main game download AND as a standalone copy you can use to connect with others who only own Santa's Rampage.
