Create an official Slack app
Whilst it is possible to integrate Slack in to Octopus using script steps at the moment, there are now some great possibilities with Slack Apps: https://slackhq.com/get-more-done-with-message-buttons-5fa5b283a59#.uw51h0tvy Steps like manual authorisation steps could be actioned through Slack, each step in a deployment could have an "output result to Slack" option etc.

Slack apps can be a lot more advanced now than back in 2016 when this suggestion was posted. I think this should be looked at seriously again now.
I would suggest checking out the Microsoft bot framework: https://dev.botframework.com/
It would allow you to integrate with several sources, including slack and teams, from one code base and seamlessly integrate natural language into the interface if desired. We built one recently for our customers and as a .net development shop it was a dream.

I'd love to be able to interact with octo from within slack. Specifically, i'd like to be able to trigger a deployment via a slack command.

Great idea and I know there is some enthusiasm for it inside the company. The message buttons are going to be a great help, thanks for the link.
