Time is running out! And so is your flashlight battery.
Can you survive the night? They say you can summon a Slenderman in real life by heading to the woods at night, carving a circle in a tree, and placing an “x” through it. Lay your face against the tree with your eyes closed. Chant: “Slenderman, Slenderman all the children try to run, Slenderman, Slenderman, to him it’s part of the fun, Slenderman, Slenderman, dressed in dark his suit and tie, Slenderman, Slenderman, you most certainly will die.” Or, save the creepy trip to the woods, and download Slender: the Eight Pages first-person survival horror game instead. Slenderman doesn’t have a generations-old backlog of sightings and stories.
This being began as an Internet rumor and grew from there.
This mythical creature is “reported” as ranging from six to sixteen feet tall. You would also know him for his lack of a face. His pale, white face is smooth. He wears a black or gray suit, with a snappy red or black bowtie, and a plain white shirt that fits over his extra long arms. Clothe him in a brighter color, ditch the pale skin, and he’d resemble a wacky waving inflatable tube man, sans the enthusiasm. At least he’s a well-dressed supernatural creature. Slenderman's hands and fingers are long -- perfect for grabbing his next victim. Slender: the Eight Pages, builds on this character. Your goal is to find pages ripped from a story about Slenderman.
It won’t be easy.
Whoever sees Slenderman suffers paranoia and memory loss. Yes, including you. It goes without saying that you should avoid contact with him. Spoiler alert: After you find a page or two, you are going to see him. Avoiding contact with Slenderman is impossible. Legend states that those who know more about Slenderman, end up becoming hunted by Slenderman. These experts say that becoming a Slenderman expert results in getting noticed by Slenderman (and not in a good way).
After you find that first page, the second, and so on, you will become the object of his obsession -- in a total “I want to kill you” sort of way.
- There isn’t much more to the story. Who is the main character?
- Why does this person want to collect these pages, and how do they even know about the pages to begin with?
Why are these pages so important someone would go outside at night, you know, the only time Slenderman is around and able to strike his victims?
- Alas, no one will ever know, but will die trying.
- The title screen is brilliant, with a title reveal and fade out hinting at the darkness ahead.
