Spooky games for Halloween: Day 8
Slender is not a word you normally associate with terror, unless maybe skinny people freak you out. If you think you've got nothing to fear from a slender man...think again. Slender: The Eight Pages is a curious little piece of digital terror that you probably have never heard of. It's an experimental first person horror game created by Parsec Productions that is available as a free download for Windows or Mac. It came out first as simply Slender Man: The Game and then was revamped a few months later with some fine tunings. The controls are simple, you can move around, look with the mouse, pick pages up and turn your flashlight on, that's it. How can anything so simple be super scary?

Well, let's start at the beginning. The legend about the Slender Man is that he is some creepy guy with long stretchy limbs and no face that sneaks around stealing children, or something. Accounts vary, but all agree that he is no good. The object of the game is to find 8 pages of information about the Slender Man as you wander around scary woods and other poorly lit areas with only a flashlight to see the way. The Slender Man stalks you constantly as you walk around. There's an algorithm at work that makes him teleport randomly around you, and he gets closer as time goes on and you pick more pages up. He could be off in the distance behind a tree or right behind you. The problem is, the more you come in contact with him, and the closer he gets to you, the faster you lose your sanity, which of course leads to a game over. You can't even look at him for too long, that's how freaky he is.

So it's kind of like a mix between hide-and-seek, keep-away and the Blair Witch Project. It adds up to a frightening experience. On the Slender Man fansite you can watch all sorts of player reactions and even live feeds of people playing the game for the first time. It has become something of and underground phenomenon since its release in June 2012, and the video reactions are hilarious to watch. You probably think that you would never scream like a little girl..but you'll never know unless you try for yourself. Wait till it's late and you're home alone, and record it with the webcam so that you can prove you weren't a sissy, because no one will believe you otherwise.
