Slender - A Free (And Really Scary) Horror Game


Slender is a free PC and Mac horror game based on a long running Something Awful thread where the eponymous nightmarish vision was used to boost the scare factor in a number of Photoshopped images of otherwise not-so-spooky shots.

The game sees the player wandering around a dark forest looking for eight pieces of a puzzle, which would be fine where it not for Slender Man himself providing some sudden (and heart-stopping) scares whenever he appears.

Sadly, the game seems to have vanished from the official site, so you’ll need to scour this Reddit thread for a download, none of which we can verify sadly, but let us know in the comments if you’ve tried it and just how freaked out you were…

      PC link doesn’t seem to work, but the Mac link is okay.

    Looks excellent. The sudden appearance type scares work excellently as shown by FEAR and to a certain extent FEAR 2, although in a more subtle incarnation Amnesia perfected the art of making a truly frightening experience.

    Horror seems to work better in PC titles, most likely because of the small distance between the monitor and the players face.

    Had this sat in my hard drive for a few weeks and can’t bring myself to play it.
    Have been watching PewDiePie on YouTube scare himself absolutely shitless with it though. Hilarious.
