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.

About the game

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, treading a fine line between dreams and reality.

The Slaughter recreates Victorian London in all its decadence and depravity through an array of atmospheric locations and a cast of eccentrically British characters. The mystery intensifies in Sydney’s dreams, where logic is turned on its head and subconscious clues are woven into abstract Lynchian dreamscapes. At its heart, this unconventional adventure is the story of a man; disillusioned with life and the choices he’s made, trying to get through one day at a time.

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
