Slay the Princess horror/comedy adventure artwork and logo

[Update]: Slay the Princess has now arrived, and I'm pleased to say it's looking quite good!

Following in the footsteps of games like The Stanley Parable, Slay the Princess is a comedy/horror adventure where you simply have to slay the princess in order to save the world. Naturally, things don't remain very simple for very long as the story quickly spirals into a myriad of different directions, time loops and utterly bizarre series of events.

Trying to talk about all of this through words alone is basically impossible, so instead allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of what Slay the Princess looks like and what it's trying to achieve. Have a gander:

If that sort of thing sounds like it's right up your alley, you'll be happy to hear that you won't have to wait all that long in order to give Slay the Princess a try. I say this as Slay the Princess will be launching onto Windows, Mac, and Linux on October 20th. As for the price tag, it looks like Slay the Princess will set you back $18.

That said, you can give it a try right now if you're so inclined as there is a free demo available on Steam! It's only a small slice of the whole adventure, but even so it should give you a good impression of the overall gameplay and swiftly let you know whether you'd actually enjoy the full thing.

Have fun with the demo, and I'll make sure to let you know once Slay the Princess finally arrives as I'm quite curious about it myself.
