Evil Science is a level in Viscera Cleanup Detail.

Level BriefingsEdit

BriefEdit

Given the nature of the work carried out within this facility, your absolute discretion is paramount.

Federation representatives will be arriving in a week, and it is imperative that the facility be clean and organized before said time.
Failure to perform your duties within company protocol, and on time, will result in immediate termination.

You are most assuredly an expendable piece within our organisation, so it is in your best interest to conduct yourself admirably.

Be absolutely certain the facility is clean, hygienic, and in working order.
And remember; discretion is the better part of employment.

Respawn BriefEdit

As per your contract, you are to perform your assigned duties efficiently and with absolute discretion.

We are only hiring you for this job in a temporary capacity, you are to stand in for a...dismissed colleague.

Work swifty and avoid eye contact with your fellow workmen for any length of time.

MapsEdit

The map consists of a wide, curved central corridor, which branches off into three medium-sized rooms. At the end of the main corridor is an elevator leading to an upper floor, comprised of a smaller central area with a bathroom and sick-bay area connected via short corridors. The door to the sick-bay requires an access code to unlock.

Bob note 01-02-2184
Bob 01/02/2184
Junior Executive Janitor
I've managed to breach security protocols and avoid personel.

My secret has been discovered, and as a result I am in deep trouble.
I was forced to hit Ottis with my mop when he came for me, now I'm on the run.

The things I've seen in this facility, God help us...
The sooner I get out of here the better. If anyone finds me, I might be their next victim.

I plan to make for the Cryogenic labs and hopefully sneak through undetected.

They must never find me!

Tips and TriviaEdit

  • The door code for the sick bay on the second floor is 2199. This is a reference to the movie The Matrix[1]
  • The words "Save us" are written on the wall in "The Ward"  on the first floor.
  • A digital notice board attempts to excuse the blood near the elevator as the result of a service technician cutting his finger on a screwdriver.
  • This level contains several toilets filled with fresh water, which can be used to clean the player's mop. However, they will eventually dirty like normal buckets.
  • The player will need to stack objects or use the J-HARM to reach stains and viscera above the duct work on the second floor, and to clean the large "pocket" in the wall on the far side of the Incinerator room.
  • Evil-Science Switch

    The switch that releases toxic gas

    A switch on the wall near the Incinerator releases a puff of toxic, green gas into each of three holding cells on the opposite side of the room, and three alcoves adjacent to that. This gas is one of the few things in the game capable of killing players, and was the first fatal feature to be intentionally added to the game.[2]
  • A switch in the "Operating Room" on the first floor activates the sawblade over the chair. It will continue to spin until the switch is used again. It will disintegrate the alien corpse that is below it at the start of the level, but will not destroy any objects afterwards.
  • It is possible to open the doors to the second floor elevator shaft just as the elevator is leaving for the lower floor. Using this method, players can toss items into the open elevator shaft as a means to remove items in bulk from the upper floor, rather than one elevator trip at a time.
  • Evil-Science BlueSlipperyStuff

    The light-blue liquid

    Prior to the v0.29 update, Evil Science had uncleanable patches of light-blue, slippery liquid on the main corridor floor to impede the player's efforts.
  • There is no function for the pizza slicer other than comic relief. The tool is also found in the level Caduceus.

Alien ReferencesEdit

  • A "Facehugger" (from the Alien franchise) can be found inside a ceiling air duct on the second floor sick-bay. Being a collectible, it is not detected by the Sniffer and does not have to be removed from the level to obtain a perfect score. Before collectibles were added to the game, the air duct instead contained a bloody arm.
  • All data logs in Evil Science contain the text "Special Order: 937" and "Interface: 2037". In "Alien", Order 937 was the classified directive to preserve the alien specimen at all cost, and Interface 2037 (also known as "Mother") was the ship's computer system's interface between itself and the crew.[3]

Dead Space ReferencesEdit

  • The PID on the floor below the corpse in the upstairs sick bay contains the name "Cpt. Mathius". This is a reference to Benjamin Mathius from the Dead Space video games, who was also (not coincidentally) killed by a needle to the eye.[4]
