The Slaughter Video & Screens – November 26, 2013

Kickstarter-funded, The Slaughter: Act One is the first of a three-act point-and-click noir adventure laced with adult themes and dark humor. It will take you to Victorian London in all its decadence and depravity.

As P.I. Sydney Emerson, you’ll visit an array of atmospheric locations and interact with a cast of eccentrically British characters as you pursue a serial killer. As the game progresses, the line between dreams and reality will become more and more indistinct. You’ll find yourself in increasingly surreal situations (think David Lynch).

Developer Brainchild Studios consists of just one person: Alexander Francois. He has crafted The Slaughter completely on his own.

The Slaughter: Act One for PC will be available on Steam January 28th. Act Two will follow later in 2016. The arrival date of Act Three is TBD. Release dates for Mac and iOS versions are also TBD.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
