Slay the Princess, narrated by two of the finest voice actors in the horror community, Jonathan Sims and Nicole Goodnight, stands out as a gem within the cosmic horror genre. This work is a flawless masterpiece that skillfully explores the intricate relationship between pain and love, navigating the broad spectrum of emotions that lie between them. While the visual manifestations of these emotions may be graphically intense, what’s truly astonishing is the tender core that seamlessly binds together all the gore and horror.
Your journey commences in a forest with the sole purpose of slaying the princess. However, it
unfolds into a cyclic pattern of killing and being killed. Each interaction gradually transforms the
princess both physically and mentally, turning her into a new vessel until the cycle concludes,
prompting a fresh start. This narrative serves as a profound journey of self-discovery and
transformation, tugging at your heartstrings in a way unlike any other game you’ve experienced.
Slay the Princess boasts multiple endings, each capable of shaking you to your very core. It’s
impossible to obtain all the vessels and endings in a single playthrough. So before you start with
our walkthrough and guide, we suggest you save the game at critical junctures. This’ll let you replay scenes with different choices, and discover all possible endings:
