Serial Cleaner Coming to PlayStation 4

Curve Digital and iFun4all have announced that Serial Cleaner will be launching digitally for PlayStation 4 on July 11, with release on Xbox One and Steam three days later on the 14th. The game is described by the developer as “Winston Wolfe from Pulp Fiction meets Hotline Miami, but you don’t kill people”, and is set in the 1970s. You clean up murder scenes, dispose of evidence, and evade the police. More is detailed, including PlayStation Plus bonuses, in the press release after the live action trailer below. Serial Cleaner sounds promising, and we look forward to checking it out next month.


Get ready to dispose of incriminating evidence and avoid police detection as indie publisher Curve Digital and developer iFun4All bring the fast-paced stealth action game, Serial Cleaner, to PlayStation 4 on July 11, as well as Xbox One and Steam (PC, Mac and Linux) on July 14. Starting today people can pre-order Serial Cleaner for $14.99 on Xbox One and receive a free copy of cyberpunk game The Swindle. Later this week PlayStation Plus subscribers can pre-order Serial Cleaner in Europe to receive a 20% discount and the game’s soundtrack, while North American PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive the same bonuses at launch.

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.

“Serial Cleaner is the perfect game for anyone wanting to challenge themselves and their stealth skills,” said Krzysztof Zięba, designer and writer at iFun4all. “The game is tough, but fair, so players need to plan their moves accordingly and improvise on the fly in order to avoid the police.”

In Serial Cleaner players can partake in Story Mode where they will play a 20-level campaign to discover the Cleaner’s backstory and discover a crazy cast of characters, including his mother. Players can also test their skills in Challenge Mode, which has players compete in a bevy of nail-bitingly hard modes such as Drunk Mode and a mode where they won’t be able to see an enemy’s vision cones.

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 is currently available as a prototype in Steam Early Access and at launch will have hours of additional content, including new levels, game modes and much more. For more information on Serial Cleaner, please visit the game’s website, or Curve Digital’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
