About This Game

You're on your own. No one to come for you. No one to help you. No one to hear you scream. Slender: The Arrival is the official videogame adaption of Slender Man, developed in collaboration with Eric "Victor Surge" Knudson, creator of the paranormal phenomenon that has been terrifying the curious-minded around the world since its inception, with Mark Hadley and Blue Isle Studios.

Back in 2012, Mark Hadley (AgentParsec) created a game that captivated gamers around the world. Slender: The Eight Pages was a short, experimental first-person game that helped breathe new life into the horror genre through its use of unadulterated tension and fear.

Experience the horror all over again.

Slender: The Arrival is the official re-imagining and expansion of the original game created by Mark Hadley, teamed up with the writers behind the Marble Hornets series and the development team at Blue Isle Studios. The Arrival features a brand new storyline, improved visuals, great replay value, and most importantly, survival horror at its best.

The Arrival officially supports the Oculus Rift – a next generation virtual headset designed for super immersive gaming! The Rift intensifies the fear-factor, and gives players a brand new, immersive horror experience.

Made me pee myself. Would play again. Also made me drunkenly yell "♥♥♥♥ you!" at my computer more times than I'm proud of.

If you played "The Eight Pages," this definitely draws influence from that, but is much more. I was worried that this would be just a more repetitive version of the original game, but I was pleasantly surprised when it expanded on it a ton.

Good atmospheric horror - there's really not a whole lot in terms of jump scares (it does have its share of jump scares), but instead does a really good job of building tension. I found myself getting nervous even after figuring out how to solve a given puzzle, because the atmosphere is very effective.

If you like the general atmosphere of Myst, this is basically that with more emphasis on creepy.

Replay value is also good because certain items are spawned in different places each time, and certain game events/scares change between plays.

Great remake of an old game. Even more terrifying now because he has little helpers to try and find and slaughter you also....

After trying to finish this game for several years I finally did it.
It's good, takes about 9 hours (spread over three years) to complete.
A+

Creepy, atmospheric and clever game. It's way scarier than the original Slender (The Eight Pages) but it keeps the magic within. (I must mention this: What surprised me the most was the BIG update the creators provided for free. That was like a year ago but it was so nice.)
It's got some mistakes like the way doors are opening and the secret level - once you get to it, there's basically no way out. But the story is good, I like all those scary little collectibles and generally the game is just pretty and fun to spend time with. Also, Slenderman freakin' rocks! (And his proxies too.)
9/10 - Would play more.

This game was alright for me.
I do enjoy the art style and how the creators have portrayed each antagonist. The music can certainly make an atmosphere for me.
Although, I wish you could discover more secrets as you play along. Perhaps I am not that observant.

This game is just amazing with it's atmosphere and graphics I nearly jumped off my chair i'm just annoyed that the game is really short but if you play Hardcore mode it will take longer than I expected but the normal mode is to quick and I wish there was more levels to the game. I really love the games monsters like Kate and Slender Man it's really frightning and it's really worth the money. But the only problem I have is not enough levels + to short I really would love if there was alot more levels and I will fall in love with this game.

Anyway in conclusion I ive this game a 7/10
Recommend to buy this game!

The original Slender, released in the summer of 2012, was an experimental horror game that dropped you into a spooky forest with nothing but a flashlight to guide your way and a faceless entity known as the Slender Man following your every step. Despite having rough, simple graphics, it was a chilling gameplay experience. Slender: The Arrival, a reimagining of the original game, once again sets players up to encounter the enigmatic Slender Man, this time with a much more robust story, improved visual design, and just as many scares.The Arrival has you play as Lauren, a young woman who is visiting her friend Kate. Kate is selling her isolated family home after her mother's death, but upon your arrival, you find Kate's house mysteriously empty. The doors are wide open, there's furniture knocked around, and there's several mysterious notes about repressed memories and hallucinations... then you see a strange figure watching you from outside the window. It isn't long before you realize something terrible has happened to Kate, and it's up to you to find out where she is and why she disappeared.One of the first things you'll notice about The Arrival is that along with a significantly overhauled visual design compared to the original, it features a very dark and foreboding atmosphere that does an excellent job of keeping you on edge, if not outright terrified. Whether its hunting down those eight infamous pages in the remake of the original forest level from Slender, or scrambling to turn on an elevator in an abandoned mining facility, you'll rarely feel that you're in a safe enough spot to stand still and catch your breath. Much like the original game, you're almost completely defenseless, and all you have with you is a flashlight and the ability to sprint for short distances. However, you'll have to worry about how often you use your light and how much noise you make, since your pursuers rely on both to track you down. Deciding between whether you should try being stealthy and risk getting lost in the dark environment, or dashing to your objectives as fast as possible knowing that you're more likely to run right into the Slender Man's open arms, can be an unnerving choice to make. The implacable Slender Man is as imposing and aggressive a foe as ever, and often the only notice you'll have that he's caught up to you is a slight distortion that ripples across your screen... occasionally followed by him flashing directly in front of you in a cacophony of digital noise and electronic screams.While the stages do have randomness to them in the form of starting locations, landmarks or key items being different each time you play through a stage, most feel like they could have had more variety. Almost all follow a similar formula of "find X number of objects while trying not to die horrifically." What really hurts The Arrival the most, though, is how short it is.Slender: The Arrival is a significant improvement over Parsec Production's original game, featuring a much more robust narrative, and a darker, more foreboding atmosphere. You may have mixed feelings about its brevity and the repetitive mechanics, but it's certainly a well-built game that, above all, is scary to play.
