Viscera Cleanup Detail is the next ridiculous game you'll have to play

Viscera Cleanup Detail points out a longstanding social implication buried within some of our favorite shooters: Who cleans up the blood, guts and flesh left behind by our violent rampages through facilities invaded by hostile aliens? In this game, it's you.

Viscera Cleanup Detail is a first-person space-based janitor simulator, starring you as a rubber-gloved person tasked with cleaning up the remnants of an epic battle, including chunks of meat, pools of blood and bullet shells. It comes out of a 10-day game jam from developer Runestorm, and it's available in alpha for PC right now.

"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!" Runestorm writes. "Humanity was saved! Unfortunately, the alien infestation and the heroic efforts of the courageous survivors have left rather a mess thoughout the facility. As the janitor, it is your duty to get this place cleaned up."

Viscera Cleanup Detail hopes it can clear away a spot on Steam Greenlight.%Gallery-193617%
