This evil suited entity can only move when you’re not looking, but that won’t keep you safe. It takes time and effort to complete this terrifying game, but the paranormal investigators at Game Front have some tips and tricks to make your stay with Slender more manageable.

Tips & Tricks

  • In Slender: The Eight Pages, you’ll need to collect Eight Pages to complete the game.
  • While you’re collecting pages, you’ll periodically face off against the Slender Man — a ghoulish creature in a suit with a blank face.
  • There are ten page locations, with the eight pages randomly switching locations for each playthrough.
  • As you collect more pages, the danger increases. Slender Man will chase you faster — but there’s a catch. Slender Man can only kill you if you’re looking at him.
  • One trick to completing Slender, is by collecting the very first page, then wondering around until Slender Man appears.
  • Once he appears, never turn around to face your back. Never spin around, never double-back.
  • The best way to complete Slender is by taking every page around the area in a circular manner, so you’ll never need to backtrack. To make this easier, use the Slender map found here.
  • The multiple bathrooms in the center of the map are the trickiest part. Search the bathrooms for a page early, or Slender Man can trap you inside.
  • If you know where you’re going, shut off the flashlight to make it harder for Slender Man to chase you. Alternatively, don’t sprint often, the faster you run the faster Slender Man will chase you.
  • When you collect the sixth page, Slender Man will always spawn directly behind you. Don’t turn around or you’ll die instantly!
  • In game terms, Slender Man literally cannot move when you spot him. He’ll only get closer when you look away, then look at him again. Use this to your advantage by lining yourself up so your perspective on the Slender Man is blocked by a tree or other surface, while you only see a small portion of his body. Especially make sure your view does not look at his face. Back away, and Slender Man will be stuck until you’re out of range.

    Loved the map, this’ll make it a lot easier for me to win.

    And josh, is that you man?

    you say in the tip turn your flash light off so its harder for him to chase you, your also easier to catch when your light is off so how would that work?


    On October 17, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    Whats the point of getting one page an once you see him never turn around? he’ll still catch you cause if your walking an hes right behind you your forced to turn around

    My tip is that the SlendrMan is staling you BEFORE you get the first page .After 4 mins. the SlenderMan is starting to stalk you and you can die even if you don’t have the first page

    Your flashlight slowly dies as time passes so it is better to try to finish quickly or conserve its battery, otherwise you will be left in permanent dark

    I always heard that you should visit the bathroom last… It always worked for me, anyways. I’ve only gotten to six pages, but never go to the bathroom first. You’ll get the page, and he’ll be around the corner.

    Believing in Slenderman is like believing in Santa: You don’t see him, but you know he’s watching you….

    when you play slender, collect the pages fast. if you walk too long, slender will suddenly appear in front of you, even if you have one or even zero pages.

    I heard every time the music that occurs after you get your first page, that every poof sound, he is teleporting.
    Also if there is a page at the tunnel that means there won’t be one at the single tanker and vice versa. Good luck guys.

    if u dont wanna get killed by slendy you have to either not go in the house or run and find the pages your choice

    That One Guy.

    When you collect the sixth page, he spawns directly behind you. YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT TURN AROUND OR YOU DIE. ARE YOU LISTENING?! ok, good. So just make sure that when you collect the page you are facing a little bit to the left or right because otherwise you’ll be trapped not able to go aroudn the surface without looking at him. So when you have five pages NEVER WALK STRAIGHT TO GET THE 6TH PAGE. U WILL DIE. Sorry i overexplained but on most ebsites people still dont get what I’m trying to say.


    On November 3, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    Slender Man can only kill you if you’re looking at him is a lie! If Slender Man collides with the player, the player loses control and looks at him and gets caught, not killed.

    f*** man stupt game wat tha heck is this that slende :evil:


    On November 30, 2013 at 8:48 am

    if you see slenderman walk to a tree or something and start to walk after out of range don’t look back im telling you he will be right behind you


    On January 11, 2014 at 11:07 am

    In my opinion, it is better to go to the bathroom first. Every door shows a way to go an another page.


    On April 4, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    Go to the bathroom first for some reasons. Number one, you don’t wanna pee your pants.
    And two, hardest part to escape.

    “When you collect the sixth page, Slender Man will always spawn directly behind you” I really hate that part. Why did they programmed it that way. that just sucks.
    btw – great tutorial

    Another thing: You’ll know Slendy is there if you start hearing/seeing static
