'Serial Cleaner' (ALL) Reveals Story & Challenge Modes - Trailer

by Rainier on June 5, 2017 @ 3:20 p.m. PDT

Serial Cleaner is a story-driven, fast-paced stealth/action game, characterized by a 1970s theme and aesthetics.

The protagonist cleans up murder scenes by disposing bodies, covering up blood stains and hiding murder weapons and other incriminating evidence.

Exploring, experimenting and fast paced decision making are the key words here. Getting caught and questioned would put a black mark on the protagonist’s career and the environment is often crawling with itchy-fingered police officers accompanied by nosy bystanders. The game uses Real-World Data to modify gameplay according to the time of day in player’s location.

Serial Cleaner takes a humoristic, slightly macabre approach to its subject matter, and doesn’t treat itself too seriously. Just take a look at the protagonist. He is a 30-ish man with a sharp sense of style and an iconic 70s look, complete with a moustache, large sunglasses, and tight pants.

Story Mode

The titular Cleaner is the guy you call when you need to clean up after a messy mafia hit or a gruesome killing of another sort. He does regular jobs for the mob, but he takes on a contract from a new client to diversy his sources of income. Story mode is a 20 level long campagn taking the player through levels subtly inspired by actual serial killings from the 1970s. The players will visit a variety of locations influenced by that cult decade, like a boxing gym, a disco club, a roadside motel, a sleazy bar and the rooftops of downtown blocks. While playing players learn more about the Cleaner, meet a bunch of crazy characters, including Cleaner's mother and are able to discover all the secrets behind the mysterious protagonist.

Challenge Mode

Players will be able to try their mettle against nail-bitingly hard modes - where they won't be able to see the enemy's vision cones, or where they can't be seen by enemies at all - but for those who just want to try out a different set of rules, we also have a few interesting modes - like the option to clean as many bodies from randomized positions as possible without getting caught and another that changes the visuals as if Cleaner was completely drunk!

Key Features:

  • fully realized 1970s-inspired setting
  • just take a look at that art style!
  • the game uses Real-World Data to modify levels accordingly with the current time of day in the player’s whereabouts
  • levels take inspiration from actual 1970s murder scenes
  • humor and atmosphere inspired by Fargo series and Pulp Fiction
  • playful approach to solving each level, which rewards exploration and experimentation

Serial Cleaner is currently available on Steam Early Access for PC, Mac and Linux for $14,99.
