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.

Hi everyone, we've entered the final 20 hours of the Kickstarter and we're so so close!

I'd like to talk about The Slaughter's new side story The Enigma of St. Saviours.

Sydney's dream room will mutate
Sydney's dream room will mutate into a landscape

Following the suspicious deaths of a number of healthy hospital patients, Sydney is tasked to uncover the culprit behind the string of poisonings. Unfortunately for him, the killer finds him first and he drifts into an endless sleep, causing his Dream Room to mutate into a vast landscape with several locations and a separate world map to navigate. Help Sydney escape his mysterious Dream World, and fight to break free from and endless sleep before it’s too late.

  • Two new locations: St. Saviour’s Hospital and Sydney’s Mutated Dream World
  • Several areas in each location
  • Separate Dream World map
  • New puzzles and dialogue
  • A new villain to thwart!

Sydney can dive into this new scenario if we can make it past our stretch goal of £10,000 on Kickstarter.

I like this old school type of games, especially if the dialog contains the classy type of one-liners we got to love from other titles of that time :D
