Serial Cleaners is Full of 90's Style

The final bit from the Future Games Show was a new world premiere from developer Draw Distance with Serial Cleaners

A single player stealth-action crime game, Serial Cleaners is the sequel to Serial Cleaner, this time with an updated aesthetic from the 1990s. The trailer didn't really show much, except the titular cleaner himself, older, more grizzled, and being attacked by oddball filters and screeching sound effects reminiscent of the dream sequences from animated shows like Bojack Horseman

The premise is more or less the same as the original Serial Cleaners, but adds a ton of new twists with a twisted 90's style. Much of it takes inspiration from 90's crime film such as Tarantino classics like Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, with a sprinkling of B-movie action films thrown into the mix. The game will feature four different narratives between four different cleaners across a non-linear storyline.

The narrative itself is in the shady streets of New York on New Years Eve in 1999, where four professional cleaners meet and reminisce about their careers. Over time though, the atmosphere becomes tense between the cleaners, as lies are told and their shared history begins to unravel between them. 


These four different perspectives offer unique play styles as well, where players will utilize stealth, brute force, and cutting-edge 90's technology to do clean up the scene of the crime for your mafia overlords. However you dump the bodies and other evidence is up to you, but do it fast before you are caught in the act.

Serial Cleaners is offering much more of the same stealth gameplay from the original title, but is certaining upping the ante with a bigger scope this time around. Players should look out for Serial Cleaners as it is released on PC and Steam in 2021.
