The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai Dishes Out Dish Washing Liquid

The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai Dishes Out Dish Washing Liquid

Between the 100 per cent non-organic label and the sudden appearance of a countdown clock, I get the feeling the bottle of Fervor Shine! dish washing liquid I received from The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai developer Ska Studios isn’t a real product.

What a fine marketing tie-in it would be, partnering the Dead Samurai with “Japan’s #1 dish washing liquid mega supplier”, as the note that accompanied this strange mailing read. The bottle, which includes a bunch of Japanese characters I cannot understand along with “happy lemon”, does indeed seem to contain dish washing liquid that does have a “overly chemical smelling lemon aroma”, but the company is not a real one, and the website,, leads directly to the giant countdown clock, seen below.

What does it all mean? I guess it means I no longer have an excuse not to wash the pans sitting in my sink. Thanks a bunch, Ska Studios.

As for the countdown clock, I’m going to sit back and pretend to ponder its meaning deeply for nearly seven days, after which point I will hit refresh on my browser.
