The Slaughter: Magdalene is a short conversational adventure where an artist chat’s to his model while painting a picture of Mary Magdalene.
Taking place in Victorian era London, The Slaughter: Magdalene is a short interlude set in the same world as The Slaughter. In the game you paint a picture of Mary Magdalene while chatting to the model you’re using as a stand-in for her. There’s a nice feeling of intimacy and trust between the two characters and you can tell that, even though they’re not romantically entangled, they’re comfortable in each other’s company.
Taking around 10 minutes to play through, you will get more from The Slaughter: Magdalene if you’ve played through The Slaughter, but even still it’s a great little standalone piece. The painting mechanics work well, the pixel art animation is excellent and the dialogue feels very authentic. There’s a nice sense of flow to the conversation between the pair, with you able to learn a lot about both of them as the conversation drifts between Mary Magdalene and themselves. A great little paint and click adventure well worth checking out.
