PSA: Donation Calls for Slender: Source Are Fake
This just in: if a dude from the UK named Justin asks you to donate to upcoming horror mod Slender: Source, don’t do it. It’s a scam.
That’s direct from Justin Ross, project lead on the Source mod based on the Slenderman mythos we’ve been watching intently ever since it was announced a few weeks ago. Ross told Game Front that someone calling himself Justin is petitioning folks on various streams and forums for donations to the mod, but that’s not the Ethereal Entertainment development team — it’s somebody unaffiliated with it.
Ethereal is attempting to sell some t-shirts and other merchandise with the hopes of paying server fees for the four-player multiplayer mod, which the team is hoping to have available for public consumption by March 2013. You can check those out on the team’s ModDB page right here.
