Independent developers RuneStorm (Viscera Cleanup Detail) and Flying Wild Hog (Shadow Warrior, Hard Reset) have been brought together via the Devolver Digital Cross Promotions Department to birth one of the more unique video game mash-ups ever – Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior. A free standalone mini-game, Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior takes place after Lo Wang’s first big katana battle against the yakuza in Shadow Warrior as a hapless janitor from Zilla Enterprises is tasked with cleaning up the bloody mess.
“When our team first saw Viscera Cleanup Detail on Steam Greenlight we absolutely loved with the idea of a person out there that had to clean up after big battles in FPS or horror games,” said Michal Szustak, Studio Head at Flying Wild Hog. “RuneStorm has done a tremendous job in taking a key scene from Shadow Warrior and recreating its aftermath to form a fun and hilariously frustrating mini-game using the Viscera Cleanup Detail mechanics.”
Budding viscera janitors will be able to use their custom mop, commercial grade plastic gloves, high tech viscera finder, and an industrial incinerator to clean up blood, guts, and the occasional dismembered arm. Plan your strategy wisely or risk tracking bloody footprints around your clean floors or knocking over a bucket of guts on what was previously a pristine flight of stairs! Perform your job skillfully and find yourself rewarded with two handsome achievements to hang in your locker.
“This clear exploitation of two talented independent developers is really a landmark moment in my career and I can’t wait to see the immense amount of personal wealth I stand to gain from this financially driven marketing stunt,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Oh, Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior is free? In that case you can all eat my butt. Eat it right up.”
