What is Viscera Cleanup Detail?

Viscera Cleanup Detail is a first-person janitorial simulation game which takes the player into bloody, horrific sci-fi environments they must clean up and restore to original top condition.

RuneStorm provides the following introduction:

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 horrific 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!

Viscera Cleanup Detail (VCD for short) gives a completely new take on sci-fi and horror games, as the player must experience the horrors of picking up after the hero, rather than being the hero themselves. The player's job is to clean up messes "in the aftermath of a sci-fi horror event".[1] This must be done by disposing of human and alien body parts, mopping up blood and other substances, repairing damaged parts of the environment, and destroying all debris that may have resulted from the onslaught.

VCD was released on Steam's Early Access program to very positive user-reviews, and has continued to receive enthusiastic feedback from players.[2] The game reached version 1.0 on the 23rd of October, 2015.

Viscera Cleanup Detail offers two spin-off games, Viscera Cleanup Detail: Santa's Rampage and Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior. Players may also buy Viscera Cleanup Detail: House of Horror, a DLC including a new level and large amount of new content.

NOTE: As of November 2015, the previously separate Santa's Rampage and Shadow Warrior DLCs have been merged into the main game, along with their assets (Shadow Warrior asset licensing rules are pending) and respective achievements (which must be unlocked again due to technical/merging restrictions).

Viscera Cleanup Detail is available for PC and Mac via Steam. The Mac version has some limited functionality. Native Linux is not supported.
