A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

This game is based off of a reddit post I saw ages ago. I have always wanted to make this game and now that Death is the topic of this month's game jam, it's a good time to start forcing this baby to be born.

The premise is that your wife mistakenly sends a text to you intended for her boyfriend. Caught in the act, you are left with only rage. Look around the house and deal with it.

This is a classic point and click adventure game with a handful of endings. It's fairly small due to time constraints but should the "real" one come out, it will be multitudes bigger.

Besides the obvious way this deals with death, there is a good ending you can achieve in which you are not caught murdering your wife.

We probably should have done something smaller in scale. :P

It's definitely not bug free so let us know if you see something!

Had a lot of fun with this game, I even "kicked the bucket" hahaha!

SLIPPERY SLOPE | "SILENCE HER!" | STEAM GREENLIGHT/INDIE GAMES

Hearing stuff like this keeps me going xP I promise I'll make it better

Glad to provide positive support! I thought the "kicking the bucket" was hilarious :P Keep up the great work bud :)

Loved all the little "fourth wall" bits the devs put in this. Surprisingly fun.

Here's an entertaining look at gameplay. SPOILERS at the end!


oh my god I can't believe people are playing this game D:

thanks! I just typed in the URL. Didn't do anything special to get the thumbnail on there. I figured it defaults to the thumbnail.

Very fun game from the start. As I am new to being a beta tester/tester in general I am wondering if this is how i contact you for bug reports? If there is some other way to contact you please let me know so I can help you polish the game!

However you wish to. This works :) I know some things are broken. LIke the cake and it's been pointed out that calling your lawyer and having the files don't prevent getting robbed if you sleep in the bed. I'll be fixing those very shortly. :)

Fantastically dark game with a sense of humor. Would play again A +

It was fun to explore what was implemented and what not.

Not enough pacifist options :)

I can't believe you made a Let's Play :) That's so awesome


edit: My idea for the big game has a better tree for pacifism. Ideally, the tree for a bad ending will be much bigger hence the slippery slope :P

2x edit: You have some good ideas :o
