Serial Cleaner Announced for Consoles

By Kelly Packard,
You know in crime movies, how there are always big shootouts where dozens of people die and the entire house is splattered in blood, guts and body parts? Well, somebody has to clean that up. That person could be you in the upcoming Serial Cleaner.

The concept is similar to 2015's Viscera Cleanup Detail, a first-person cleaner-upper that saw players mopping and scrubbing after sci-fi horror scenes filled with alien blood and guts. Serial Cleaner flips the perspective on its head with the top-down view, and this time you're cleaning up Mafia crime scenes. But you're not just a custodian; you're eliminating any evidence that they ever occurred so your employers don't take any heat.

It's also got stealth aspects. The police are on the scene as you're cleaning up and the last thing you want is them catching wind of your antics. Elements of the level are also randomized, so instead of just memorizing the level, you'll be constantly thinking on the fly.

Your character? He's simply named "The Cleaner." He's part of a wider story arc where The Cleaner gets a new client in addition to his regular Mafia crowd. The new client is of the less-than-desirable sort and things get a little hairy for The Cleaner. The "serial" in the title appears to give us a hint at this mysterious client's "profession." The story is set in the 1970s and the developers promise plenty of 70s beats and clothing. The time period was also the inspiration for the game's art style.

The title was developed by iFun4all and is being published by Curve Digital, a frequent publisher of indie games.

Serial Cleaner doesn't have a release date but is scheduled to arrive on PS4 this summer.

We've got the full list of Serial Cleaner trophies - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
