Blue Velvet meets Monkey Island in The Slaughter; a 2D point-and-click adventure from with gameplay in the vein of the classic LucasArts and Revolution games, but with dark adult themes and an emphasis on character development. It’s essentially a game about being human.

A serial killer is terrorizing the streets of Victorian London, and private investigator Sydney Emerson has hit a new low between finding lost dogs and receiving alleyway beatings. A turn of events sees Sydney forgoing his selfish nature and thrusting himself into perilous and increasingly surreal situations, walking the line between dreams and reality. Explore the seedy streets of Victorian London, searching the slums, taverns, opium dens and even Sydney’s dreams and hallucinations for leads. Meet a cast of interesting, insane and eccentrically British characters, and hunt a killer while exploring the deeper human condition.

Gameplay draws on the best aspects of point-and-click adventures; the tricky yet logical puzzles, the fun interactions and lines of dialogue players can choose to seek out if they wish, and the little details that make the world seem alive. As in real life, character dialogue can be funny, banal, abstract, sombre or aggressive depending on their mood. The nature of Sydney’s conversation options will also change throughout the game as his state of mind deteriorates, the trauma he encounters having a realistic effect on his human interactions.

my name's Shen and I'm a relatively new youtuber. I was wondering, this game looks like it would be fun and I would like to help you get your votes with a video of playing it. Could you perhaps feature it?

I have already talked to a lot of Greenlight developers (Devs that use Greenlight) and have been trying their games out and making videos about them. Another perspective, Festival of Magic, Cornerstone: The song of Tyrim for example.

An additional bonus to the video is that my first impressions are genuine and I try to be constructive. I do not look at things in a certain way such as "oh my god, this is not "Next gen"-graphic, discarded". I can give you genuine feedback after playing the game.

I wish you all the best success and hope you will keep up the good work,


p.s: If you would like to talk, add me on steam. I can also provide a youtube link there. I would not want to use your greenlight comments section to advertise my channel.
