Slay the Princess Synopsis

You’re on a path in the woods. And at the end of that path is a cabin. And in the basement of that cabin is a Princess. You’re here to slay her. If you don’t, it will be the end of the world.

Slay the Princess is a fully-voiced, cheeky horror tragicomedy. In this fully-voiced roleplaying game, the player is tasked by a mysterious voice to kill a princess who has been imprisoned in a cabin hidden deep in the woods. If the player doesn’t fulfill their task, the voice alleges, the princess will bring about the end of the world. But can the voice be trusted? Can the Princess be trusted? Can anyone be trusted?

Over the course of their journey, the player will die. A lot. And every time they die, the game starts over, only things are a little different. The cabin is different, the Princess is different, even the voices in the player’s head are different. And everyone, except for the narrator, remembers everything that’s happened.

At its core, Slay the Princess is a game about choice and the way our perceptions shape the world around us.

Who the player chooses to believe and how they react to new information shifts the direction of the story in dramatic ways, including changing the Princess herself. The next time you see her, will she be an ordinary princess, or will she be a towering, 10-foot-tall demon? Or, will she be something straight out of your nightmares?

Our own Jerry Williams found plenty to love about the game, and Patrick Gann had similarly positive sentiments about its original soundtrack.

Slay the Princess is available now on PC, macOS, and Linux via Steam and GOG. If you’d rather try it out, has a demo for download.
