All Articles: Serial Cleaner
It’s Friday, and Microsoft has added a trio of new games to the Xbox Games Store for the Xbox One.
First up is Serial Cleaner, an overhead action/stealth that asks players to take control of “The Cleaner,” a Tarantino-esque character who disposes of bodies for the mob.
Also available to download today is Fatal Fury Special, a fighting game that was originally released for the NeoGeo in 1993. Fatal Fury Special is actually a “powered-up” version of Fatal Fury 2, and it includes more characters, more speed, and the unique two-lane arenas the franchise is known for.
Finally today, Xbox One owners will have the chance to download DeadCore, a first-person platformer that blends “exploration, speedrunning, and puzzles” in a futuristic world.
You can learn more about all three of these titles after the break. (more…)
PS Store This Week: Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age, Minecraft Story Mode Season 2, Serial Cleaner, more
We might be in the middle of the Summer gaming drought, but there are plenty of new releases available this week through the PlayStation Store.
Leading the way is a game that actually made its debut more than a decade ago. Originally released for the PS2 in 2006, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will feature enhanced graphics and sound on the PS4, as well as the Zodiac Job System that was only available in the RPG’s “International” edition.
Square Enix will also publish MotoGP 17 for the PS4 this week, which includes all the riders, teams, and tracks from the 2017 season.
A second epic tale will launch for the PS4 this week, as Telltale Games will release the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2. Jesse and friends return in Episode 1: Hero in Residence, but there’s no rest for the wicked, as a strange gauntlet has latched itself onto Jesse.
Finally this week, a trio of new indie games will provide some interesting new experiences for PS4 owners. Serial Cleaner is a 70s-set adventure about body disposal, Iron Crypticle is a Gauntlet/Smash TV hybrid, and Mr. Shifty features a teleporting thief.
More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
Harvey Keitel really helped popularize the idea of a “Cleaner,” someone who disposes of blood and bodies after a murder-for-hire, when he portrayed “The Wolf” in 1994’s Pulp Fiction. Curve Digital and iFun4All really ran with this idea when they created Serial Cleaner, a crime scene cleanup that’ll make its debut on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in July.
Serial Cleaner is set in the swingin’ 70s, and it’ll ask players to hide evidence in a lengthy Story Mode and a tricky Challenge Mode:
Set in the 1970s, Serial Cleaner has players sneak around bloody crime scenes to clean up incriminating evidence by disposing of bodies, covering up bloodstains and hiding murder weapons all while avoiding the police. To succeed players must explore, experiment, and make swift decisions in order to avoid police detection. Get caught and players earn a black mark on their protagonist’s career.
Players must also be wary of their environment as the game uses real-world data to modify levels accordingly with the current time of day in a player’s whereabouts. Noise detection and “sneakability” will vary between night and day, and mean the difference between freedom and jail.
Serial Cleaner will be available for the PS4 on July 11, with a PC and Xbox One launch to follow on July 14. A gameplay trailer has been embedded after the break. (more…)
