“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

“The Arrival pushed me to the edge of sanity. With its clever combination of unsettling pictures and disturbing sounds this is one of the most intense horror experiences available today.”

About the 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.

A great expansion on the original game. I enjoyed it very much as the atmosphere sets up a very scary experience. But the one thing that will either make or break this game for you is if you can forgive the fact that 90% of the scares in this game are jump scares.

Slender: The Arrival is a horror game based on the slender myth. With the first game: Slender: The eight pages, the gaming community got turned upside down by it's scares and tension it can deliver. Can Slender: The Arrival do this too? Well, no. Because it did not turn the gaming community upside down. But everything else has improved on the first game, with more levels and better graphics, Slender: The Arrvial knows how to scare the living hell out of you. Each level has something different to do. First you collect 8 pages like the original, then you need to turn on 6 generators in an old mine with a different enemy the the slenderman. The Chaser is human like thing that chases you in the mines. The last small bonus level is about an other person trying to keep the slenderman out of her house by closing all doors and windows. These levels are connected to a small story of 1 hour and 45 minutes. Slender: The Arrival really improved with the scares and the graphics and makes this game better in every way. I recommend this to everyone who likes jumpscares and the slender myhtos. The only thing about the game that gives some disappointment around fans is that the story is very short and there is not much talk about the slender myth itself. 65/100

Wasn't a fan of the original slender. Found it too boring and lacking attachment. Decided to give this one a go and it was far superior. Warning to those who scare easy, it can be intense at times. Found it short and fairly linear. Another level or two would have been nice. The linear aspect isn't that restrictive allowing exploration if desired. Playing in the dark with a headset on is recommended for those who want a thrill. I found myself checking directions even more than I did in Alan Wake. Audio is nice and while I have read about people having running issues or bugs I noticed neither.

To conclude, Slender the Arrival is an interesting but short-lived psychological horror experience, that's worth checking out if you like a bit of tension and meaningless scares. The vagueness of the game won't be agreeable for some people, and for others, the lack of hand holding will be a godsend. On a technical level, the game could be better optimized and it's a shame some extra effects weren't used to add to the atmosphere. That said, there's some genuine fear on offer here,which shows that the most simple of concepts can work but at the end of the game it's likely you'll be none the wiser as to what just happened.

I find this game extremely offensive to people that like to wander around the woods wearing suits, such as myself.
