Why ’90s cult film fans will love Serial Cleaners

Ever wonder what happens after an action-packed shootout in a movie? Assuming the police don’t get there first, you’d have to think that someone gets sent over to clean up the mess, right? Shell casings, dead bodies, bloodstains, you name it—it’s all got to go, and in Serial Cleaners it’s your job to take care of it.

The game throws you into all kinds of high-intensity scenarios where you need to sort out a crime scene while avoiding the patrolling authorities and other undesirables. The story is depicted through flashback, as the titular cleaners recount their ‘glory days’ through a filter of 90s cult movie nostalgia. Taking place across iconic era-appropriate settings like old-school arcades, live-audience sitcom sets, and grimy urban locales evoking 90s New York City, Serial Cleaners is a love letter to films from directors like Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and the Coen Brothers.

The homages start on the very first mission, which is set in a drug den inspired by Scorsese’s relatively unknown (by the director’s lofty standards) Bringing Out the Dead, starring Nicolas Cage. Other stages will give you flashbacks too, such as a certain convenience store that’s reminiscent of Kevin Smith’s slacker comedy Clerks, and a train station where you need to extract a mobster who’s in the process of bleeding out (which may trigger memories of a certain Al Pacino flick that rhymes with ‘Crime Don’t Pay.’)
