About This Game

It's time to become the ultimate warrior that you've always dreamed! Samurai Slaughter House was built from the ground up as a VR exclusive. Explore a large metroidvania-style open world, interact with NPCs, and engage in deadly physics-based combat.

Physics Based Combat
Weapons and enemies have weight and resistance. No wiggling swords here. Enemies attacks can be blocked/parried. Enemies have weak points that can be targeted. Enemies themselves are physics based and can be pushed, tripped, and knocked over.

Explore a Beautiful Stylized World
Fight your way through various hand-crafted locations that all connect to each other to form a large, open, metroidvania-style open world. Find different passages and secret areas throughout the game world.

Interactive NPCs and RPG Features
Samurai Slaughter House is not just a combat sandbox, it's a full game with everything you would expect from an action-adventure game, including friendly NPCs, quest lines, ingredients/currency that can be spend in shops, player inventory, companions, and much more.

Wide Variety of Weapons
Fulfil your ultimate martial arts fantasies by getting access to a large range of weapons including a huge selection of real life martial arts weapons and also a large range of weapons based on movies, anime, and manga.

Collect Companions
No need to take on the fight alone! You'll be able to meet and befriend NPCs that you'll be able to ask to join you in combat. You'll also be able to collect yokai monsters that will follow you around and help you fight your foes.

Unique Original Soundtrack
Enjoy slaying to relaxing lo-fi music or feel the hectic tempo of drum n bass. Samurai Slaughter House has two unique soundtracks created just for the game by artist/musician Tab. Listen to songs from both or just one while playing.
