Slender "The Arrival" is right around the corner

Lets face it: if you haven’t played Slender, you’ve been living under a rock. This is probably a good thing given that it is one of the scariest indie games out there. So what does the creator of the original game do with his free time? Well, instead of sitting back and surfing the internet for stories of players peeing their pants playing the game, he has decided to combine his talents with Blue Isle Studios to make a better game.

Slender: The Arrival is a sequel to the successful scare-fest, Slender: The Eight Pages which released last year. The plot of the game is to collect eight pages that are scattered around a forest in the middle of the night, whilst being pursued by the antagonist called "The Slenderman" who is quite literally the stuff of nightmares. Download the first game free off the main website if you dare.

There has been a lot of great work done with The Arrival and it is quite a bit more scarier than the original. From what can be seen, one of the biggest improvements that can be seen is with the graphics as they are much smoother than in the original.

As well as this, the original map has been remodelled and creator of the original Mark Hadley has stated on the official website, that there is going to be greater content in this new version, with more levels, and a plot, so survivors of the original game will actually have a real purpose for collecting random pages around a scary forest in the middle of the night.

In addition to this, trailers show that there may be more than one foe in the new Slender game.

The game is currently in its beta version. However, it will be available for official download on March 26th. There is a real possibility that the game may also be made available for consoles and mobile devices.

Speaking about this on the Slender: The Arrival, website, creator Mark Hadley states: "Our goal is to get the game in the hands of as many players as possible. We are very seriously considering developing Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and mobile versions of the game."

The only downside to this game, which is possibly a blessing for anyone easily scared, is that the game will cost money this time around; players can pre-order the game from the official Slender: The Arrival website. Make no mistake: this is one PC game not to miss, so for those of you crying about a lack of horror games, man up and check this out.

I'm not sure you know what the word "literally" means

"is quite literally the stuff of nightmares"

I thought that would be acceptable use of the word, since nightmares aren't tangible to begin with

But am literally not an expert on literacy.
He is talking about the title, originally it was called Slender: The Arrival is around the corner, literally, but I edited it. :P

Yeah, that.

I checked around the corner, but alas, no physical copy of the game was there...
Fright isn't a one size fits all deal you cant say its not scary if it doesn't make you as an individual scared that's opinion example dead space doesn't scare me but it scares my friend slender makes me nervous but has no effect on my friend neither of us can really say you don't know what scary is whats scary to people is determined by life experience
