Nintendo Switch owners who are looking for a good scare can now find one in Slender: The Arrival. Made by Blue Island Studios (Valley, Citadel: Forged With Fire), the game features the horrors hidden within the mysterious Slender universe.
As the only official Slender Man (who is described by eyewitnesses as a thin, unnaturally tall man dressed in a black suit with a blank, featureless face) video game, Slender: The Arrival places players at the epicenter surrounding the enigmatic Internet mythos that has captivated and terrorized millions and, sadly, inspired a near-fatal stabbing incident in 2014. Players are enveloped in a dark, foreboding world of sensory deprivation with a story fraught with terror, filled with haunting visions and audio cues that create a healthy dose of tension and paranoia.
The game was developed in collaboration with Eric “Victor Surge” Knudson, creator of the paranormal phenomenon, and written by the creative team behind the Marble Hornets series.
Slender: The Arrival is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
