Slender: The Arrival Review

Slender: The Arrival Review

I’ve always been terrified of the idea of Slenderman. I mean, he just shows up randomly, stalks you for years, driving you crazy, then kills you. That’s frightening!

When I heard of Slender: The Arrival, I vowed to never, ever in my life play it.

So, naturally, I’m playing it for you guys.

What’s it about?
Slender: The Arrival is a first person survival game based around the Slenderman mythos. In the game, you play as CR and you have to search for clues in regards to the disappearance of Kate, a friend from childhood. You wander around the forest looking for pages while trying to stay as far away from Slender as you possibly can.

It’s terrifying.

What did I think?
This game is amazing. The graphics are good and creepy, the music is anxiety-inducing and the subject matter is bone-chilling. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.

The game developers really know how to make you scream. Every time my camera pulsed or I saw a glimpse of Slender’s hand, I about jumped out of my skin. The music doesn’t help at all. I was instinctively tense and even ended up being startled by floorboards creaking in my own house.

Do I recommend it?
So far, yes. Definitely. If you like having the piss scared out of you, definitely get this game. I will post more about it after I’ve played more of the game.

Keep an eye on our Twitch channel as well as on YouTube for future game play of Slender: The Arrival. In the meantime, watch me jump here:
