The gritty ’90s interval piece Serial Cleaners has been on our radar for some time now, however with its new Future Games Show trailer it lastly has a launch date: September 22.
Serial Cleaners tells the story of 4 former fixers for the Mafia catching up on New Years Eve, 2000 and reminiscing about their grotesque work over the earlier decade. It builds on the gameplay of Draw Distance’s earlier game within the collection, Serial Cleaner (singular) which boasted an analogous premise however in a pixel artwork fashion and sending up a completely different decade of the earlier century (the groovy ’70s, child.)
Serial Cleaners is a primarily stealth-based game where you sneak round cops to muck up the proof left at crime scenes, cleansing up bloodstains and wiping away fingerprints to assist your legal employers get off scot-free. Each member of the cleanup crew has a singular persona and skills to deliver to the fore, and I’m excited to see how its story of remorse and misdeeds performs out. From the game’s Steam web page:
“Four characters, four perspectives, four play styles. Street smarts, brute force, cutting-edge tech skills or good old fashioned tricks of the trade: each will allow you to tackle a similar obstacle much differently. Choose your path through the non-linear story by picking the part of the narrative you want to hear next, and then approach each mission as carefully or brazenly as you like. Utilize stealth, exploration and speed as the situation – and your preferred experience – warrants it. Get rid of the bodies and other damning evidence to wipe the decade’s slate clean before the new millennium comes!”
We haven’t got for much longer to attend: Serial Cleaners’ September 22 launch is simply across the nook. You can wishlist Serial Cleaners now on Steam.
