Slender: The Arrival Beta Footage (VID)
11 minutes of beta footage for Slender: The Arrival have been released, and they’re fiendishly enticing.
The video showcases the upcoming sequel/remake of Slender: The Eight Pages, set to release March 26 for $10 (or $5 pre-order), which comes with greatly improved graphics and a storyline.
Some Slender players expressed concerns that the original game worked due to its simplicity, and that fancy graphics would ruin that effect. Check out the footage to see for yourself.
I don’t think the improved visuals take away from the experience at all — they add to it. I’ve never been a fan of distortion and fancy post-processing effects in most games, because I seek visual clarity, but they work perfectly in here, where the objective is to introduce fear by messing with your ability to see what’s happening.
