Press / Business Contact:
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.

About BrainchildFrom the smallest detail in a grotty pub basement, to the sound of horses hooves, Alexander Francois creates all aspects of his games alone. When not working on The Slaughter, Alex makes smaller games like gravity-based adventure Orbit HD, which has sold over 15,000 copies on Steam alone, and Ink Blotter, the first app to randomly generate Rorschach tests. Alex is interested in perverting the expectations of what a video game should be, aiming to give his games narrative worthy of a novel, but without compromising on enjoyable gameplay.
