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. PLEASE CHECK US OUT ON GREENLIGHT! Thanks!

Report article RSS Feed Future plans for VCD

Hello ya'll! We've got some details here on where we plan to take Viscera Cleanup Detail.

Posted by RuneStorm on Jul 31st, 2013

Greetings everyone!

So we've been taking the last week easy. Our brother is still recovering, so that will obviously delay work ;)
We've been spending some time solidifying the vision for the full VCD however, so we want to let you guys know where we want VCD to go. Here we go then :)

----------

Alpha v0.12 screenshotsAlpha v0.1 screenshots

Central to the full game will be a selection of unique maps, each with their own premise/style/focus. Some example of these would be:

  • Medical Bay
  • Gravity Chamber
  • Infested Facility

Each of these areas would feature slightly different gameplay and approaches. The game is still about cleaning up each place, but each place brings with it a unique focus and differing challenges/mechanics.

Beyond that, we will be adding more mechanics and polishing up existing functions. Here is a brief list of some planned features:

  • A tool for picking up several cartridges at once.
  • Blood will take a little more than one "jab" to get rid of (could depend on size of splat).
  • Better interaction between hands and objects.
  • Fire mechanics (fires can be put out and can be started accidentally).
  • Alien infestation and tools to deal with it
  • Saw
  • Flamethrower
  • A radio.
  • Dead bodies.
  • Bullet holes and a tool to fix them.
  • Broken equipment and ways of repairing it.
  • Cataloging name-tags of deceased (more details on this down the line)
  • The possible addition of a cart. A wonky cart.

And we have a bunch of other ideas still, but we want to keep a few surprises ;)
Also, there will be considerably more fixes and polish applied to current aspects, such as physics syncing and "clocking-out".

And please don't forget to give us a 'Yes' vote on Steam Greenlight :)

Thanks everyone, I hope this sheds some light on things :)
Cheers!

Interesting concept. Although I can't help but imagine a co-op twist to it, making it so that 2 cleaners need to work togheter and coordinate each other in a timely manner to clean the areas as fast as possible for time trials and limits.

Definitely voting on steam.
