Game Information

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 - The Pristine cut is a fully voice-acted horror tragicomedy featuring the impeccable talents of Jonathan Sims and Nichole Goodnight, with lovingly hand-penciled frames by Ignatz-winning graphic novelist Abby Howard.

This game features a princess. She's very bad and you have to get rid of her for all our sakes. She's just an ordinary human Princess, and you can definitely slay her as long as you put your mind to it. Hopefully you won't die. But if you do, you'll die a lot. Be careful and stay focused on the task at hand! What you say and what you believe will shift the story in dramatic ways.

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


Slay the Princess - The Pristine Cut introduces Metacritic’s 5th highest rated PC game of 2023 to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Xbox for the first time with new content, updated features and more. The Pristine Cut offers an updated and refined experience of the chilling, thought-provoking adventure, promising to captivate both new players and returning fans alike.

Game Features

The Pristine Cut Features

  • 3 brand new chapters replete with mysteries -- and consequences.
  • Never before seen Princesses who will all murder you without a second thought.
  • Expansions to familiar routes. The Den, The Apotheosis, and The Fury each have more than doubled in length.
  • Over 35% more content overall -- and all of it filled with great opportunities to listen to me and do your job.
  • A new ending. And hopefully one that saves the world rather than damns it.
  • Track your progress: Cherish your memories, relive your exploits, and uncover deeply hidden secrets with the new gallery feature.
  • Over 1,200 new hand-penciled frames hand illustrated by Abby Howard.
  • Over 2,500 new lines of dialogue fully voiced by the impeccable Jonathan Sims and Nichole Goodnight.

Yes, prepare yourself for an expanded journey filled with new perils, difficult choices, and unforgettable encounters. Will you stay on the path to slay the Princess, or will the new chapters alter your fate? (That said, while I wish free-will weren’t a thing here, I cannot emphasize this enough: you have to slay her. Please.)
