Slender - Free Scary Indie Game
Written by JurassicJunkie on July 10 2012 12:14 AM
Today is my first of 4 days off so I spent the morning procrastinating on Reddit. I came across a topic about a new free indie game by the name of Slender.

After a quick Google of the word slender brought me to a page about the Slender Man

The Slender Man was created at the Something Awful Forums in a thread entitled "Create Paranormal Images." He is described as wearing a black suit strikingly similar to the visage of the notorious Men In Black, and as the name suggests, appears very thin and able to stretch his limbs and torso to inhuman lengths in order to induce fear and ensnare his prey. Once his arms are outstretched, his victims are put into something of a hypnotized state, where they are utterly helpless to stop themselves from walking into them. He is also able to create tendrils from his fingers and back that he uses to walk on in a similar fashion to Doc Ock, the Spider-Man villain in the Marvel Universe. The superhuman stretching ability could also be seen as a similiarty between himself and Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four. Whether he absorbs, kills, or mearly takes his victims to an undiclosed location or dimension is also unknown as there are never any bodies or evidence left behind in his wake to deduce a definite conclusion.

The indie game is based on the Slender Man and drops you into a forest only armed with a flashlight. The objective of the game is to find 8 pieces of paper scattered around the forest while at the same time trying to avoid the Slender Man.

The shocking thing about this game is when you first bump in to Mr Slender he is not as scary as I would expect, if anything he is more of a lifeless polygone doll, so this allowed me to drop my guard and crack on with the game, but with clever character placement and expert timing on the audio does make Selender a very jumpy game.

The game can be downloaded free from here or you can watch my reaction video (including a very manly scream) here

Watched your vid about 4am this morning. Very manly scream. Is this because you happened to 'pump' into the Slender Man? I'm surprised he didn't scream.

Signed up to tell you this Junkie, as I couldn't send you a direct message on YouTube.

You need to play SCP-087-B, you can find it here - (if it's too dark, you can up the brightness in the options file). It's another horror game that done the rounds a few months back. Is based on this - Definitely worth reading before you play, will add to the atmosphere. The game freaked me the fuck out. Would love to see you record yourself playing it (don't watch any other playthroughs before you play).
