Slender: The Eight Pages, a free Unity game based on the Slender Man horror meme (the one we have to constantly remind ourselves is not real), has been quietly creeping through the tubes for some time. The Eight Pages is a simplistic yet terrifying romp through an oppressive forest, where players are stalked by the deadly, omnipresent form of Slender Man as they attempt to locate eight scraps of paper by the dim glow of a fading flashlight. And yes, people play this for fun.
Slender: The Arrival is in development by The Eight Pages creator Mark Hadley, under Parsec Productions, and Blue Isle Studios. It's planned for a commercial PC release "in the coming months."
"Slender: The Arrival is the official re-imagining of the original release that will engage players with the same terrifying gameplay, while adding a complete gaming experience that the fans have been asking for," Blue Isle writes. "We have been working closely with Mark over the past few weeks and we are really excited to deliver the best Slender game possible. The final version will include improved visuals, more content, more levels, and an engaging storyline to add to the Slender setting."
