Let The Bodies Hit The Floor
Nintendo, for the most part, are known to create and publish video games that are considered family friendly. Even at its most harrowing, parents can easily pick up a copy of The Legend of Zelda without having to worry about their kids being exposed to mature content. However, with the release of the Switch, it seems that Nintendo are broadening their horizons. With ports of Doom and Wolfenstein II, its become clear that they are dead serious about the Switch standing shoulder to shoulder with other mainstream consoles.
Now we have this latest example, and given its subject matter, its clear that the Switch truly has no issue with blood or dark themes anymore.
According to an article on Eurogamer –
Murder scene mop-’em-up Serial Cleaner is on its way to Switch and will reach the system before the end of the year, developer iFun4All has announced.
Serial Cleaner, a 70s-inspired stealth game, replete with appropriately funky soundtrack, launched on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 earlier this year to generally favourable reviews.
It casts you as a dashingly moustachioed professional “cleaner” (the shadowy criminal kind), and tasks you with infiltrating a succession of cartoonishly ghoulish murder scenes in order to mop up all evidence of wrongdoing before the cops can sniff it – or you – out.
Serial Cleaner is the latest in sudden flurry of indie games to leap enthusiastically onto Nintendo’s Switch, which is rapidly become a treasure trove of top-tier indie delights.
The little handheld hybrid has been graced with the likes of Golf Story, Stardew Valley, Steam World Dig 2, Thimbleweed Park, and Axiom Verge in recent weeks alone, and there’s plenty more, including Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition, and Super Meat Boy Forever, to come.
