About Slender The Arrival:
Since 2009, Slender Man’s internet debut, the mythos and canon around the persona has grown exponentially, spiraling off into fan fiction (creepypasta), video series and countless still images. Now, the ultimate immersive experience is available through the only official Slender Man game, with new content to discover and a new servant of Slender Man – Charlie – a young boy, now a lost soul, who exists solely for the sadistic pleasure of The Operator. As players explore, they can find new clues and information about Charlie’s past and how he came to be under the control of this ominous force. In addition, Blue Isle Studios has revamped the ending to provide a more robust experience for players who will have access to a suite of new Steam features. Online leaderboards, stat tracking, achievements, cloud saves, trading cards and full controller support for gamepads are all built into the game.
In Slender:The Arrival, players step into the shoes of Laura, an unwitting pawn in Slender Man’s game of life and death. Upon discovering her friend Kate’s home ransacked, Laura uncovers clues and items while in search of her long-time friend. Plunging deeper into the sadistic world of Slender Man, Laura experiences voices, cryptic messages, deadly apparitions and horrific insights regarding the maleficent forces in tow. Adding to the immersive feel and spine-chilling atmosphere, Slender: The Arrival supports Oculus Rift for the most intense, hair-raising experience to date.
