Mike from Twinfinite writes, "Viscera Cleanup Detail is essentially a janitorial simulation game, but with a sci-fi twist. The basic premise is that you exist in the aftermath of the epic battle between a video game hero who has wiped out an alien invasion. The threat has been neutralized and everyone is off celebrating victory. You, on the other hand must get to work cleaning up the mess left behind. It is at its most basic level a cross between Super Mario Sunshine and Dead Space."
