Slender :the arrival 

Is based on the myth of the slenderman. For those of you who don't know the slenderman, he is a creature that stalks you and drives you to insanity. He is known for being a tall faceless man that just stares at you. One day you seem him across the road then outside your windows then before you know it he is in your house and then no one ever hears from you again.

here are some screens of this beautiful game coming this spring.

Slender: 8 Pages wasn't scary/good, and slenderman was never scary.

I'm not sure why you are claiming this is the best horror game ever.

If you're referring to the trailer you posted, yes, I saw it a few days after it was posted. It doesn't look that good.

Amnesia: AMFP Outlast Dementium 2 looks good Hell, I'd say Dead Space 3 looks better than this game.

i beat amnesia not that amazing but it was still decent. as for dementium it was a cool looking game on the ds but i am not so sure how this one will be. Dead space is an action game with jump scares.

All three of the games i mentioned, not counting DS3, will most likely be higher quality than Slender. Outlast looks especially good.

There are a few horror games coming out on the PC this year that look more interesting. I might get it, trailer wasn't very good though.

Well this thread went straight downhill.

Anyway, this looks cool, I enjoyed Slender for what it was, it's very creepy first time on your own with headphones in the dark, but the appeal wears off after the first maybe 2-3 attempts and it becomes pretty easy to learn the tricks.

I'm really glad he followed up with a bigger and hopefully better experience though. I love all horror games so gimme gimme. Don't know why everyone is b!tching and moaning in here, just enjoy all fo them and be happy. 

Wait... It's gonna be $20?? fvck that sh!t. No way I'd pay that for it

I am at a loss as to why any one would find Slenderman creepy. Especially when it has no real mythology at all. This "monster" was made up in a internet forum a few years ago.

It looks good and interesting, but the guy is being greedy asking for $20 for it because he knows how popular Slender was. It should be $10 because chances are it will be short and have no replay value.

It has to be real to be scary? :? So you can pretty much discount almost all horror in any form then. Almost all horror stories or characters are fake

It's not that slenderman is scary, it's that the feeling of being alone and he can pop up anywhere that's scary, it's your imagination doing the work. Slenderman himself isn't scary at all, but if you were alone in a dark forest and he popped up behind you, you would be pretty freaked out

Anyway I can't see it being the best horror game ever, but I probably look into it. Honestly I think I more interested in Faceless due to the multiplayer aspect.

It has its moments, but it not as scary as some people made it out to be.

Well I maybe gullible/optimistic but I believe the possibilty of ghost/spirits and aliens. I can believe that there could be some dangerous species of animals that have not be discovered yet. I can even believe that an mutated virus could turn human into pyschpaths (rabies like infection) or cause mutations from genetic experiements in the future.

I cannot believe in a stupid looking tall man with jelly arms. If I saw out in woods by myslef I would probably sh!t my pants, but it doesn't make for a good game concept.

It is in Slender because it's so simplistic. You walk and find some pages and the music and ambient sounds do most of the work, it's the possibilty of something happening that's the worst. Not when it actually does happen, it's a perfect lesson in tension building and atmosphere and it works pretty well for how very limited it is. But it only works like once or twice

 I must have been unknowingly living in a cave, because I've never heard of Slender anything. Honestly, It looks like a bunch of nonsense. 

If I saw him out in woods by myself, I would probably s*** my pants, but it doesn't make for a good game concept.

StrongBlackVine

I'm also going to go ahead and +1 this. I'll pass, which is unfortunate since I'm always excited to hear about potentially good horror games.

Wow, we got a lot of badasses in this thread. The original Slender game was pretty dull, but it absolutely nailed the concept of the A.I stalker. That is what is scary, not necessarily the creature it is based on. It's the paranoia of knowing it's just out of eyesight, creeping up on you, and will get you at the most unexpected moment is why it's lauded everywhere. If I'm not mistaken, that's also what make games such as Amnesia and Silent Hill scary; not knowing what's there, but knowing something is there.

seanmcloughlin
I find that's the problem with games and horror. Once you learn the mechanics, the tension is over. For all it did well, Amnesia became quickly unreplayable because of the pretty obvious designs they left everywhere. You know when a room is designed for monsters, or if you're left to do your puzzles in peace, and that's even by the first run through. By the second one, you know where the scripted scares are. I think the only series that successfully keeps its horrific tension is Silent Hill 1-4. Even upon replaying them, especially for the fun runs implemented into the game, there are some sequences which are still really unsettling despite having been done before.

Nothing stalks you in Silent Hill. Nemesis stalked you RE.
