Post news RSS Future plans for VCD

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

Posted by on

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 :)

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".

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


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.

this sounds amazing, i wont buy it as it is now, but as soon as I read the line "Cataloging name-tags of deceased (more details on this down the line)" i was sold, when that comes out, you tell me, ill buy 3 copies, so that 2 of my friends can enjoy the wonders of beign a janitor with out making risky life choices.
