Slender Review

Don't look behind you.

I wholeheartedly agree with this review

Quite an amusing little game, if you like heart attacks

Now if you'll excuse me, I have people to go scare

I played this game once. I was talking to someone I met like 2 weeks before on skype while playing. Let's just say that she heard my less manly side..

and what happened to the video?

Nice ending bro!

I've played Slender and it does give you a fright for the first time you play it, but things get less frighting the more you play it. I'm not sure if that's just me talking to myself as I play or everyone.

As a free title, Slender is just awesome. Small download and free, unless you don't like scary games, go get this game!

Where can I download this? The websites download link don't work.

If the developer's site isn't working, you can also check out the game's fansite http://slendergame.com/ for more download links.

I was genuinely on the edge of my seat while watching the video (I'm not sure if that's a sign of the game design or my own cowardice). The thought of actually playing it is almost making my brain force me to run away like a maniac while screaming "NOPE!!"..... good review, btw!

And Paul Goodman was never heard from again...

Seems interesting. If I weren't such an amazingly paranoid pansy of a man, I'd likely give it a shot.

Me also. We can see it is an excellent horror game. Fuck this game!

Ah, me and my friends played this a while ago. Filmed it. Learned a lot about myself really. Turns out instead of whimpering or screaming I shout obscenities and tell Slenderman to suck my dick. Very, very scary game. The most pages I've ever found is 3.

Anybody else hate that fucking bathroom looking place? Especially the random chairs. Scariest fucking chairs in the world.

RaikuFA:

Probably true for everybody.
And its universal for all things: fear wonder sadness excitement beauty eroticism anger joy. All feelings fade if we experience them too often or about one thing. When I first played through S.T.A.L.K.E.R it was the most terrifying thing, now it only has the rare jump. Remember the first time you woke up to Christmas? Probably not as amazing subsequent times.

Does one of the pieces of paper tell you to give him $20?

In other news Slenderman fucking terrifies me, so nope, although I'm sure it's a great game.

Am I the only one that finds Slender unbelievably boring? You're just walking around an empty forest looking for some pages. Appearances of SlenderMan don't make this game scary, they just make it hard to complete.

I also like how you can't see shit without the flashligh under clear and starry sky but can see everything perfectly fine inside a building.

You quoted the wrong guy...

Was confused at first.

Yeah I meant it for yRAR_972 but I must have missclicked XD
I wont bother editing it though its funnier this way.

Ive seen a few Let`s Plays of it, and yeah, it looks very, very scary, even if it`s not graphically brilliant. Hell, even that home page of theirs freaks me out...
But screw it, might as well try it out.
I mean, what`s the worst that can happen?

I tried to download it and all it gave me was some uncompresser and a lot of toolbar spam. What am I doing wrong?

just saying slender can spawn before you find the first page, just wanted to correct that error.

Funny you should mention that...

Really? I never wandered around long enough without collecting any pages to encounter him in that way.

After jesse cox did a video about slender lots of people complaint that he shouldn't have been scared has he found no pages so a whole bunch of people did videos showing that if you just wonder around randomly without any pages for long enough slendy will find you. Also jesse cox walked around roughly 15min without finding a sheet and quite the moment his screen got fuzzy, I probably say that he spawns either when you find your first sheet or after x amount of time, which ever happens first.

Yahtzee needs to play that game.

He already did: http://twitter.com/YahtzeeCroshaw/status/226500172304248833

I was playing Slender, when suddenly static started to appear, I began to look back knowing I was screwed, whe- AVAST FUCKING NOTIFICATION gave me a heart attack.

Scary? LOL! Startling, yes, when he jumps in your face on screen with the screeching static but its hard to create lasting fears with a character so easily identifiable and poorly created. Just a dude without a face, a badly rendered one at that. The sounds are the only scares I can find here kids. Go play a real horror game like Amnesia the Dark Decent.

Furioso:

Christ. When even the brightly lit, joke mode of this game still creeps me the fuck out, I know I need to stay away from it.

There is a very good reason to not play this game.

Being able to sleep at night.

How on Earth did you have the time and knowledge to write all of this for your post? Or was your post attacked by a mod?

People should remember that there has been an entire mythos surrounding the Slender Man for a few years now. If you want to get started, a few good series on YouTube are Marble Hornets, Strange Aeons, Tribe Twelve, and EverymanHYBRID.

Hahaha, awesome. I've had it pop up playing less scary games before, I turned it off but can imagine it's horrifying popping up during a game like this.

I need to play this now, this review has swayed me. Nothing better than multiple heart attacks to spice up my evening.

The up close shot of Slendy's 'lack of face' sort of takes me out of it. This game is great, I just hope it does receive a few changes to make the final screamer a little scarier.

I've played this ... made me stop after I collected two papers. Didn't even encounter him and the thought of him catching me forced me to turn off my computer (lol). I'm great with horror games, love them but this was the first time a video game ever actually held fear over me. That, and I looked into some videos based on Slenderman so knowing what his motives are... is creepy to the point it's chilling.

You better go play a co op action game since having a friend with you can make things better and less scarier :P
