Agatha Knife Is A Satirical Adventure Game About Butchering Animals?
(Last Updated On: March 15, 2017)

Well, when I clicked on this game I definitely wasn’t expecting it to be about a young girl’s love for animals, and how she slaughters them and eats them. But lo and behold, developers Mango Protocal’s game Agatha Knife, is exactly that.

You play as Agatha, a seven-year-old girl that works in her mother’s butcher shop. Yes, that’s right, you play as a seven-year-old animal butcher. Agatha finds herself in quite the predicament as she loves animals and being their friend, but she also enjoys eating them just as much. Agatha wants to remain friends with the animals, but she also doesn’t want them to be afraid of her since their fate ends with her slicing them up and eating them. That is quite the conundrum!

Agatha Knife is a handcrafted point-and-click adventure game, with cute 2D cartoon graphics. The story will take you on a grand journey filled with satire and dark humor, interesting characters, and controversial issues, as you find a way to remove the animals fear of death and being eaten.

I think the dark humor mixed with cute 2D characters makes this game stand out from the crowd as being something fun and original to give a good laugh. The art style reminds me a bit of something you might see on the Cartoon Network that might air alongside a show like Finn And Jake or Steven´s Universe. The developers released a teaser for Agatha Knife, so take a look at the Steam Greenlight trailer that I linked down below that shows a bit of the story and the gameplay.

I find the in’game text a bit difficult to read, but overall the concept seems interesting. Agatha Knife is scheduled for a Spring 2017 release date, and the developers currently have the game on Steam Greenlight as they seek votes to get their game approved for the Steam Store.

    Semi related but if you’re interested with this kind of plot, you might want to watch/read gin no saji (silver spoon) manga/anime, it’s both hilarious and very heartwarming too.

      Wait, the spirit from The Incredibly Slow Murder With The Painfully Inefficient Weapon has its own manga/anime? 😀

      • EroBotan

        i didn’t know that such thing exist lol .. and it’s also semi related too XD

      I’ve been waiting for that live action movie for years now… It looks like he might just live up to his claims “9 years in the making”. Probably one of my top favorite YouTube videos. 😀

  • I’m going to use this as an example of how to properly say you find a game distasteful and don’t wish to buy it.

    For me personally, anything involving animals suffering or dying is too much for me to handle, as I love animals too much. So, in spite of my dislike, I will not be buying this game.

    If every SJW reacted more like this, we would solve, like, 1/3 of the problem with them.

      It might be one of those games though that goes deeper than just her killing animals. The developers say on the greenlight page that they tackle controversial issues, so the game could end (or be up to the player) with her choosing that the animals lives and their friendship is more valuable than her eating them.I guess we won’t know for sure until the game comes out, but I noticed the actual plot for the game was quite vague because they didn’t want to spoil it, so there is a chance the game has a deeper more meaningful story. We’ll see.

      • I’m sure there is a good reason, don’t get me wrong – it’s just not for me, is all.
