Today is Halloween, the night of spooks and scares, where the world of the living brushes with the world of the dead. On a night such as this you want a scary game to get into the spirit and what better than the sequel to one of the best modern horror games? Get ready to run and hide in Slender: The Arrival!
Slender: The Arrival follows up on the surprising success of the indie game Slender: The Eight Pages. If you haven’t played the original go try it now. Then when you have stopped hiding under the bed sheets come back and check out this sequel.
This new game brings more in depth gameplay and story to the tense atmosphere of the original, heavily influenced by the Marble Hornets series about the titular terror.
Now one of the “charms” of the original Slender game was its simplicity, focusing entirely upon building a tense atmosphere , something many modern horror games tend to lack. Hopefully the inclusion of a deeper story won’t remove from this atmosphere and will instead draw players in more to the game’s setting.
Slender: The Arrival was recently released on Steam and is currently available in their Halloween discount, so if you are looking for something to make you wet yourself this Halloween this game might be what you are looking for.
