''SLA Industries'' (pronounced "SLAY Industries") is a TabletopRPG originally published in the early 1990s by Glaswegian studio Nightfall Games. It's set in the World of Progress, a horrific {{Dystopia}} governed by {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s (the eponymous SLA Industries) under the control of Mr. Slayer, an immortal plutocrat with a grand plan.

The game follows the exploits of SLA Operatives, highly-trained corporate troubleshooters that the company uses for everything from quashing internal subversion to clearing mutant pigs out of the sewers. Their principal area of operation is the company's capital of Mort City, an urban jungle the size of Eurasia, rain-soaked home to a churning mass of serial killers, terrorists, human traffickers, psychotic war veterans, killer cyborgs, cannibals, mutants, [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot cannibal mutants]], and the aforementioned pigs.

* MixAndMatch: One RPG-reviewing site said about the game that "Everyone who attempts to describe SLA Industries ends up comparing it to something else."" For example, one fanartist called it "The best scottish dystopian {{cyberpunk}} Film/{{blade runner}} urban horror Literature/{{trainspotting}} homage ever," [[http://haruaxeman.deviantart.com/art/Grotesquery-532866593 while also claiming it reminded him of]] Literature/VenissUnderground.

* LayeredMetropolis: Mort Central, the setting of most campaigns, actually manages to hold three varieties. First, the city [[{{Undercity}} is built on top of the ruins of a previous city that is now mostly underground]], which the citizens of Mort don't like to talk about. Understandable, given that it's full of decaying infrastructure, carnivorous pigs, carriens, human psychopaths, and [[NightmareFuel horrifying monsters]], men in PoweredArmor, terrorists, and things that the standard police rifle is less effective against than a BB gun... [[CrapsackWorld because, ironically enough, it IS a]] [[MagneticWeapons gauss]] BB gun. Second, there's Downtown, a warren of walkways, streets, and buildings extending deep underground that's similar to the Kowloon Walled City. Third, there's also several skyways full of shops high above the urban sprawl of the city.

-->'''Glenn "Carnage" Berry''': "It's like sex. The first few times are the biggest thrill in the world, then you stop for some reason and you miss it a hundred times worse than when you never did it. Then you start doing it regularly, and it becomes and part of your everyday life... I mean, you look forward to it, and it's good, but it's not the same as when you first started. Then you find you are doing it less and less until one day it's really good because you did something different. Then
for a few years you look for the different thing. Then you look at yourself one day and [[CrossesTheLineTwice you're wearing a strange costume and a weird mask and chains and things...]]"
