Slender: The Arrival Gets a New (Gameplay) Trailer
Slender: The Eight Pages may have been 20 minutes long and little more than a proof-of-concept of the Unity Engine, but it ended up being one of my favorite games of the year because it so thoroughly nails horror. That perfect little experience is getting a retail release/sequel as creator Mark J. Hadley’s Parsec Productions teams up with Blue Isle, and now we can see a little of that game in action.
It’s called Slender: The Arrival, by the way, and it has some serious Slenderman cred behind it already, with the writing team from Marble Hornets involved in the story. The trailer below is the first we’ve seen of the game actually in action, and it appears that the Marble Hornets influence on the Slenderman mythos — namely, masked mad-people under the creature’s control — is exerting itself in the game. That means more crazy s–t to be afraid of as you’re wandering around in the dark with only your flashlight.
Slender: The Arrival is due in the early part of next year. We’re waiting with baited breath and flashlight tightly gripped.
