“A significant improvement over Parsec Production's original game, featuring a much more robust narrative, and a darker, more foreboding atmosphere.”
90 – The Escapist

“One of the most terrifying games in recent memory.”
85 – GameSpot

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.

Was really impessed with this little horror treat. Beautiful graphics, great suspense building and effective jumpscares. Only downside, was very brief, could realistically finish it in 2 hours. Took me 3.6 because I'm a thorough explorer and I died a lot... first time I saw Slender I just ran right up to him to say hi... But other than that, it's much better than expected. And well worth it at the sale price of 3.99. I would place it somewhere between The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Outlast, as far as style and gameplay. If you like either one of those, and a good jumpscare, you'll like this one. The story seemed like a prologue, so hopefully it's just The Arrival and we'll see some fully fleshed out sequels. Definitely tracking this studio to see what they come up with next.

Slender: The Arrival is a very spooky horror game with an excellent coordination of music, sounds, atmosphere, and visuals that keep the chill factor high throughout. The story provides 8 different locations to explore, and offers a fair amount of clues that slowly unfold a sinister evil that has taken over the land. The game does a great job of presenting scares in moderation which creates a prolonging sense of anticipation of what's going to happen next.

Although the game can be relatively short, an initial playthrough should take several hours. Slender: The Arrival felt almost like starring in my own Blair Witch Project movie. One of the better horror games I've played that doesn't involve shooting.

Slender The Arrival is a worthy successor to Slender The Eight Pages. More beautiful, immersive, still scary, the title gives chills and cold sweats the most courageous of you. Unfortunately, the player becomes accustomed too quickly their graphics and sound effects. In addition, the life duration is low and lack of variety in the objectives prevent him to rank among the essential of survival horror. Absolute fans of the genre can still be tempted.

I personally had really liked Slenderman as a horror character/myth or whatever you wish to call him. I found his design and behavior to be very intriguing, that was the original reason I picked this game up. I didn't expect too much from it since I had seen a playthrough of it when it first came out, BUT this game has truly stunned me! They added soo many bloody new things to enjoy! New levels, more story, another antagonist, and soo much replay value. I was very surprised at how satisfying the gameplay was, and it did quite a good job of making an erie atmosphere. Now being the manly man I am, I wasn't even scared for a second! But to some people I suppose this game would be considered pretty freaky. So in the end, if you like Slendy and horror games, I would suggest you give this one a go!

Nunca pensei que um jogo indie poderia ter gráficos tão bons assim! Ele não é um Crissis 3 mas não perde feio em gráficos não! Mas o game não é só gráficos, a história é fantástica! O jogo é meio misterioso, por isso vc precisa ter um bom inglês para conseguir joga-lo, pois precisa ler várias cartas e tal. Mas o jogo é tão ♥♥♥♥ que vc começa a ficar assustado antes mesmo das partes assustadoras. Eu achei ele meio estilo Amnesia, então se vc gostou de amnesia vai curtir Slender tbm! Se vc curte um bom jogo de terror, recomendo esse game!

You know a game is good when you are to afraid to start or even play it at all. You know a game is good when you have to pack an extra pair of underwear just in case, well you know. You know a game is good when you get so scared you beg a friend or two to try it for themselves. I had a friend who thought it didn't look that scary, I was sitting pretty when he was litterally begging his mom to pick him up early (he slept with her that night)

This is a nice game for people who are into the horror genre. Although it's a little bit short, the game is really fun, and the scare factor is definitely noticeable. What's really good about this game is the atmosphere and detail of each level, and the way it really lets you be absorbed into it. I recommend this for anyone who enjoys atmospheric and or scary games.

A terrifyingly unfrightful game which has you, a silent protagonist, look for his friend "Kate", investigate an area while picking up 8 pieces of paper while you're stalked by a mentally challenged individual who wears a sock on his head and a suit.

Lots of static for the faint of heart, plenty of eerie low rumbling sounds in dark areas and a generic world that forces you, the player, to "immerse" yourself into is something that the game offers.

If one were to look for a decent horror title which does not base it's horror of a drearily paced, monotonous environment flicking switches and travelling as if the main character has a third of his thighs removed thus causing a wobbly running effect then it would be better to go back to Resident Evil. Or Evil Within. Or Amnesia or Penumbra! Those are nice titles.

TL;DR avoid if you find Five Nights at Freddy's boring, purchase if you are easily frightened by lame indie titles.

Now, give me those downvotes now you rabid fans.

Theirs nothing sexy, than a tall skinny guy stalking you in the woods. This game did give me the jumps. Reason why: Loud sounds, slender kinda just pops up out of no where.

Pros
Graphics amazing
Game is randomly generated. Items you found in the bathroom may not be there next time.
Sound quality good

Before playing this game, I've heard and knew a bit about Slender Man and other related stuff, but not much. So that said, I was curious to give this game a go, especially since I love horror games and giving myself a good scare once in awhile. Let's just say that this game did not disappoint. Although it was a bit of a short game as I clocked in around 2.5 hours, completing it in two sessions, I've got no regrets about purchasing or playing the game. It was a good experience I enjoyed, which is what matters. And if I must say so, I was quite a fan of the soundtrack for this game, which I also purchased as well. I find it goes well with the game itself and definitely adds in that scare factor. It can also be creepy as well. I was impressed with the graphics. And controller support was a nice bonus too, as I was initially unsure if this game had it or not. And finally, I think this game has a pretty good story as well, which is an important thing I look for when I play video games. This game definitely has my curiosity of Slender Man intrigued now as I'm pretty sure I'm going to be looking more into this Slender Man stuff more. All in all, I enjoyed this game and I'd recommend it, especially if you want a good scare. And keeping in mind, I played the entire game in a pitch dark room with headphones.
