Trivia Cleanup *SPOILERS*
Greetings everyone.

So, in the interests of revealing details about the world of Viscera Cleanup Detail in small trickles, We've decided to launch a kind of Trivia thread.

NOTE:
The official trivia is closed, but you can still participate, see the latest posts!

New Rules:
  • A person will start by asking a question. This can be factual(to the best of your knowledge), or hypothetical. Just try and make it entertaining.
  • Everyone else will then answer that question to the best of their abilities, or skip it if they desire.
  • The person who asked the question, will then reply(after a period of time that suits them) with the answer.
  • They will then also decide who goes next, stating by name that: "I nominate Johnny Two-Toes for the next question".
  • After which point, Johnny Two Toes(or whoever) may either pose a new question, or hand off to someone else if they don't feel like it.
  • If the nominated person does not ask a question within one day, then another person is chosen by semi-consensus until a new question is posed.
  • And the cycle then repeats.


Official Rules
---------------
It'll go down like this(gonna gameify that sucka!):
  • We will ask a question about some small detail of VCD's universe/lore/mythos.
  • We will give several possible answers, or if more suitable we will provide no possible answers.
  • You will tell us which one is correct and detail your answer, either by filling in the missing details, or by elaborating on your theory.
  • Alternatively we will pose a hypothetical situation you will find yourself in, and you must formulate a way to act it out.
  • First and foremost, we're here to have fun. So while scores will be tracked(if applicable), they really don't matter most of the time. Just be creative, or as interesting as you want!
  • Each day(or when possible) the answer will be given and we shall move on to the next question, at which point the scores(if applicable) will be adjusted.


Old rules
---------------
  • We will ask a question about some small detail of VCD's universe/lore/mythos.
  • We will give several possible answers, or if more suitable we will provide no possible answers.
  • You will tell us which one is correct and detail your answer, either by filling in the missing details, or by elaborating on your theory.
  • We will assign you a point value based on your answer, 1 point for full and correct answer, 0.5 for half answers, etc. We shall use our discretion to be as fair as possible. Some multiple choice questions allow you to scoop more than 1 point, but the more choices you list the less rewards you get for being correct. The order in which you guess matters!
  • The first person to answer some portion of a question correctly will always get the points for that portion. Others may also(if suitable), but with ever decreasing rewards.
  • Covering a portion of the answer that the previous person/persons missed is allowed and will get you points if valid. Sometimes answering the same as others will also get you points, if applicable.
  • Changing your answers is allowed as long as it does not conflict with another person's answer.
  • We will list here in the original post the scores of each person who answers correctly(updated as we go).
  • The first correct full answer or the first few partial(yet sufficient)answers will allow us to move to the next question and no more opportunities for answering the former question will be allowed.
  • Each day(or when possible) the answer will be given and we shall move on to the next question, at which point the scores will be adjusted.
  • Checking for the answer in VCD's files or any Wiki is not allowed unless you already know the answer from said sources. Just be fair. Googling an answer is not a fair challenge.



Now for the disclaimer. If anyone posts bugs, unrelated questions or generally derailing posts, I will delete them. Rest assured, posting anywhere else is just as constructive, we read everything so there's no point posting anything like that in here.

Deafness, blindness, loss of life, psychosis, and possible rips in (or shattering of) the space-time continuum.
And of course igniting nearby explosives and lighting solar flares. Fun!

Correct! As can be seen on its screen, written in fine print.


Why do the machines sometimes spit-out limbs instead of buckets or bins?

1. Because your co-workers like playing practical jokes.
2. There is a terrible malfunction in the molecular assembly system, resulting in limbs.
3. No one knows.
4. Because it usually gets clogged with people it sucks in.
5. Because Bob has been stuffing all the machines with his trophies.
6. The machines don't malfunction, you idiot! That's actually an intentional company tactic to keep Janitors working, can't you see!
7. Because they sense your fear.

8. The machine gods use it as a method of punishing blasphemers.

I pick option 8.

Second choice would be 1, but I can't imagine that being as consistent as 6 would be.

The wiki hypothesis is 2, but the actual answer is 3 (I think).
Crucozore Jan 14, 2016 @ 10:18am 
1?
Doesn't matter if you do your job perfectly or very bad, your coworkers still try to threaten your life. Probably did that too.
BlackEagle  [developer] Jan 14, 2016 @ 12:28pm 
Heh, some very interesting answers!
The correct option however is: 4

Ever since the early days of VCD we've wanted to make the machines sometimes suck the player in, causing you to die in agony as it devours you. You would have the option to tap a key to die more painfully and hang on longer, but cannot be saved.
Unfortunately we never added this feature. Like so many things, it just didn't happen.
There is mention of this behaviour in one of the death threat notes from your colleagues though.

This is the real reason why the machines have limbs in, or at least the real explanation. Think about that the next time you go near the thing!

Cursed blasphemers, burn them all!


Next question
In the level Caduceus, there is graffiti on the walls, some blood writing. What does it say? Assuming there is any...

It's on the glass but I can't read it - something about storm and stopping something.
A JANITOR Jan 14, 2016 @ 1:38pm 
it says THE STORM IS COMING RS
so as exex says rs is runescape I like to think its RuneStorm but its probly runescape
---------------------------------------------
i did say runestorm is coming but quickly changed it before anyone else after loading caduseus
n yeah that would be neat if was a reference to runestorm since caduceus was vcd's 1st level:)
absurd wasnt your original answer "the storm is coming for us"

Absurd Logic Jan 14, 2016 @ 1:42pm 
the storm is coming RS

(Edit: I saw your original Answer, A JAN. Wasn't that. :p Would have been neat if it was true though.)
