Remember the independently developed Slender (officially called Slender: The Eight Pages) which was horrifying gamers the world over when it released for free on PC? Wayward individuals looking for a scare weren’t the only ones who noticed, as Blue Isle Studios and Parsec Productions announced a sequel, Slender: The Arrival, with Mark Hadley himself part of the process. And judging by the new trailer, there’s a lot more to fear this time than Slender Man himself.
The developers have announced a launch on both PC and Mac, and promise more levels with better visuals and an encompassing storyline. We think that’s code for there being no escape though.
As of now, Slender: The Arrival has no official release date but there’s a good chance we’ll see it in early 2013. With Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, Outlast and Until Dawn arriving, it could be the most memorable year for horror (and adventure) gaming yet.
