Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

This game contains three main censorship options: STREAMER MODE, FADE TO BLACK, and FIVE ALARM CHILI. Streamer Mode will censor ANY sex acts, sexual jokes, and obscene references from the game. Fade to Black will censor all sex acts and nudity. FIVE ALARM CHILI will leave everything uncensored. These settings can be selected at character creation and changed at any time.

This game contains a TOGGLEABLE OPTION to turn sex-based minigames and nudity on or off. These minigames include narrative-based and realistic sex acts, including but not limited to: full penetration, oral sex, BDSM, consensual acts of roleplayed nonconsent if the player selects this option explicitly, consensual acts of stalking, and supernatural possession. All acts WILL ASK FOR IN-GAME CONSENT via the course of normal gameplay before unlocking this content and can be turned on/off at any time in the Settings menu.

All potentially triggering content (here including suicidal mentions, mentions of parental alcohol abuse, and non-sexual slapping) can be adjusted on the game's Settings page. This will remove the content from your game unless unchecked again.

This is a game set at a college and contains copious amounts of mentions of drug use and alcohol among adult characters.

Wall o' Reviews


A legacy admit thrust into the life of a masked slasher by his overbearing dads, Hex is a frat boy himbo with a heart of gold who wants nothing more than to wear slides all day, smoke weed, make friends, and listen to ICP.

Antagonistic, thrillseeking, and completely unable to connect with their emotions in a genuine way, Juno puts the FUCK in FUCK YOU. What, that doesn't count as a joke? You wanna fight about it? Or like, kiss about it? Or talk about my fucked-up family and how they impacted how I see myself and my place in the world about it?

Putting the "Final Girl" in "Girlboss", Laila Velasquez is top at everything: Top of her class, top in the bedroom, and top at trying to get the rest of these assholes to appreciate just how much work she puts into being THIS perfect.

Undergrad masked murderer who's now in law school, Sawyer just can't shake the fact that he liked chasing co-eds down with a chainsaw a little TOO much. For a guy who's struggling to be the most consensual slasher in existence, can he have his cake (you) and stab it too (hopefully not you, unless you're into that)?

An A/V nerd with a big, dark, Eldritch secret, Tate's favorite things are video editing, substance abuse, losing his shit on set, and processing his trauma through the lens of B-movies. Not necessarily in that order.

Major Features

  • 15+ HOURS (3+ hours per romance arc!) of RPG style gameplay with items, unlocks, quest chains, story choices & story puzzles, etc, all revolving around the main romances
  • Full Character Customization including hair, makeup, body types, skin, & facial features - plus more to discover in-game!
  • Dynamic Feelings Systems for each character that keeps track of everyone's feelings for you, based on their "memories", that trigger the story in a modular way for a different playthrough every time!
  • Makeout minigames unique to each character!
  • Full blown sex minigames unique to each character!
  • Five dateable characters (so far), tons of flirtable cuties. (The Slasher U fanbase has an ongoing vote for who the Next Romanceable Character is, and currently Headless Horsemike is in the lead! Go Mike!)
  • Full optional story-integrated polyamory (or, if you're an asshole, uncommunicative cheating!)
  • Fully art’ed hand-drawn characters with a bevy of reacts!
  • Collectible cosmetics, including wearable outfits, phone skins, and more!
  • 90’s inspired open-world adventure game map in All-American Murder College Theming!
  • Kink-positive romances (and vanilla ones, too)!
  • Toggle between R-Rated and Hard Explicit 18+ at any time for all my aces out there (and twitch streamers) with no gameplay or romance penalty; plenty of stage-based consent checks for The Weird Shit. Also, enjoy the Weird Shit!
  • Every relationship is written with a full spectrum of orientations in mind, including pretty much every configuration of LGBTQIA+ as well as hetero relationships (so everyone's technically playersexual, but each romance/experience differs based on wlw/mlm/ostensibly bi/ostensibly het/etc player+romance partner mechanics; characters also have specific preferences).
  • Tons of fun gender stuff like character creation having separate gender and sex options!
  • Evolving relationships with plenty of models, systems, and interlocking storylines and quests, from pursuing your crush to relationship life (or undeath, your call)
  • Bonus Slasher U minigames that’re horror/slasher/college themed, like Hallway Sprinting 101, Bartending, and Student Hunting 101
  • An homage to scary movies and a serious attempt by the OP to make a well-balanced, reactive, romantic, emotionally pathos-laden, and contextually satisfying sexy dating sim (with tons of y2k style dick jokes)

Reviews from players!

"Wow. Just Wow. That's all I can say. I usually find it difficult to get truly invested in dating sims because of how often I play them. I thought I saw pretty much everything there was to offer in this genre but you've proved me wrong. Mixing comedy and smut and having both be actually well written is so rare." -@somefilthycasual

"Okay so I just found this game a few hours ago and I literally am fucking obsessed with it now, I am so SO invested in this. I adore every single character, the art, the setting, the writing, the humor, the NSFW. Literal perfection. Please keep up the good work because oh my god I am gonna be so heartbroken if this ever ends on a cliffhanger. I am actually so dedicated to this project and kudos a billion times to you!!!" -@Charsunegg

"Andi is making really smart and reactive otome games with a system which I'm excited to see applied to way more stuff! Characters remember when you told them you love them and react to your actions organically in a way that I've always wished games like Fire Emblem, Rune Factory, and so much more would do. I think it's really cool to see a mechanic like this applied in the indie space!" -@kotalinejones

"im absolutely in love with the characters, they're very well-written, with lots of attention and details, each of them is unique. even the side characters have their own vibe which is awesome. the story moves in perfect tempo [...] the game is something very beautiful and important and ur attitude to it and others who like it is the same" -@huaishanhai
