The Nightmare at Slaughter Abbey is an investigative epistolary game. Unlock the story by studying, reconnecting, and reorganising the occult studies created by the missing woman. You only have limited compute cycles in which to decrypt the data. Get this wrong and reciting the dark passages may summon the unexpected and the unwanted. Whatever took the scientist may spill forth from your computer.
A secretive society investigating paranormal activity is working alongside a young woman’s family to release a PC/Mac application that will unlock the secrets of her disappearance. The application contains data found on an encrypted digital diary created by the promising research scientist. Contained within are correspondences, notes, measurements, sketches, simulations, insights, maps, photographs, live-action videos, and some believe, a record of her deterioration into madness. She went missing on the 21st December 2012, 5 months after she started her studies of the mysterious "Nightmare Abbey" located in a remote part of the Cotswolds, England.
Our aim is to have a demo available for Develop 2017 in Brighton.
