Slender: Source Devs Drop First Videos, In-Game Images

We’ve been following the development of the upcoming Source mod based on the Slenderman mythos, Slender: Source, with great interest. Developer Ethereal Entertainment has been pushing out weekly updates on their progress toward a March 2013 release, and the most recent content drop is the creepiest yet.

First up are the images, seen above and below, which show a few of the locations through which players will be fleeing in terror. Ethereal says it intends to raise the ceiling of the below location, Bear Valley Hospital, and also has a forest map that’ll include a spooky darkened tunnel.

We’ve embedded a couple of lore/promo/creep-you-the-hell-out videos below from the update. After checking those out, pop over to the Slender: Source ModDB page, where you can read about all this stuff and even catch a cut of the theme music that’ll probably make its way into the mod.

I’m sorry if this is a stupid question, but just to clarify, do you need to own half life 2 for this, like for cry of fear and abbration, or is it a seperate game that does NOT require a copy of hl2?

@Phillip, generally you need HL2 installed to play any source mods, since they use its files for their base.

@Phillip i don’t think it s included with the game. like counterstrike started out as a hl2 mod then it became counterstrike: source. if it said source then it should work stand-alone.

I’m talking to the devs tomorrow, so I’ll ask them. Meantime, worth noting that the mod won’t be available until probably March at least.
