The Slaughter: Act One, with an original projected release date of July 2014, is finally here! Brainchild Studios invites you into a “Victorian noir adventure laced with adult themes and dark humor.”

You are Sydney Emerson, a washed-up private eye. When a serial killer starts terrorizing Victorian London in all its decadence and depravity, you become entangled in perilous and increasingly surreal situations, and walk a fine line between dreams and reality.

The Slaughter is a Kickstarter-funded, classic point-and-click adventure à la LucasArts, but with much darker themes. It is the product of one individual: Alexander Francois, aka Brainchild Studios. It will be released in three acts. Act One is available now for PC/Windows on SteamHumble Bundle and the Brainchild Studios website.

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. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
