Watches... No Eyes...
I'm sure a lot of us know of a certain fellow known as Slenderman. If you don't, are easily scared ad value sleep and hate paranoia, please go before it's too late/ If you love nightmares and crapping your pants please continue.
So you know how Slenderman vlogs usually go. Person with a camera and a flashnight at a creepy place at night. Something looks like a tree, audio and visual distoorion starts blaring and then Oppy/Slendy shows and the persons freaks the fuck out and books it.
Well, you can be that person in a video game now.
Slender is a free downloadable game by Unfiction forums user, AgentParsec.
The game is simple. You are in a fenced in forests with creepy structures and rocks. Your goal is to get eight randomly generated notes. There are ten places where a note can be. Oh and Slendy is in the forest with you. With each note you get, Slendy gets more agressive in tracking you. It is very important to keep checking behuind you and running only when needed as you have a stamina bar.
There are no scripted movemednts or scares for Slendy. He moves according to the AI and as such is completely randome. He can be anywhere at any time and is usually following you directly after a certain number of notes.
Since the game is viewed from a camera the protoganist is holding, everytime Slendy is near, static will start to form or even quickly appear loudly. the longer you look at him, the worst it gets. Until the screen is fully static with only Slenderman's face in it up close. Also, if he gets close enough, he will turn you around so keep as much distance as possible.
At the moment it's basically a proof of concept and only in beta. how ever it's absolutely horrifying so check it out.
If you are too scared to play it, like I am, you should still check out the let's play by Sinuyan whose calm demeanor and kind voice makes the game fun to watch. He has videos of each version so you can see how it is progressing..
IGN has done two very positive articles on the game and a commentary. I can only find one though.
