Slender The 8 Pages
Slender: The Eight Pages is another low-budget indie title that takes the Slender Man myth as its inspiration and attempts to weave it into a survival horror game. Unfortunately, while this one shares the strong atmosphere of previous attempts, it falls down in the same ways as other games, in that it fails to provide any meaningful gameplay to back up its admittedly strong sense of brooding terror.
The myth of the Slender Man doesn't appear to have its roots in any reality and instead started out as simply a rumor which has now spread like wildfire thanks to the Internet. The Eight Pages takes the idea of the character, a tall, shadowy figure that causes memory loss, paranoia and fits in whoever sees him, and turns it into a simple, cut down first person adventure. Your only goal in this game is to find the eight pages from a manuscript about the Slender Man, while desperately trying to avoid coming into contact with him.

Slender The 8 Pages
Slender The 8 Pages is the original survival horror game which takes the idea of the character, a tall, shadowy figure that causes memory loss and paranoia.
You don't want to run out of battery
The game plays out in traditional first-person perspective, with the player exploring a series of creepy environments that are familiar from pretty much every other version of the legend and from other survival horror games. You can expect to find yourself in a lonely forest at night, with no company but the ever whistling wind, or venturing cautiously into abandoned farm buildings and suchlike, armed with nothing more than a torch. This torch is your only companion, but it does have a limited battery life, so you have to be careful how much you use it. You really don't want to run out of battery just when the Slender Man shows up, as this is where the terror truly begins.
Search of the manuscript
The Eight Pages is undeniably strong on atmosphere, although in a highly familiar fashion, and the initial moments of exploration, when you realise you are alone in the dark, are genuinely unnerving. Exploration is highly tense, as you tentatively head out in search of the manuscript, and which is helped no end by the minimalist but effective sound design. The blowing of the wind or the various creaking noises which accompany your progress only add to your sense of unease and when you finally meet the Slender Man, things really do get cranked up a notch.
Is there anything to actually do here?
However, the real problem here is that to get to the good bits, you have to wade through what eventually turns out to be pretty tedious stuff with little of any real substance actually occurring. As such, things get boring quite quickly and which isn't helped by the fact that there really isn't anything to actually do here. Your only task is to seek out the eight pages, making the gameplay extremely limited and ultimately rather pointless. Add to this the fact that we've seen pretty much identical gameplay from other Slender Man games and you have an experience which is long on atmosphere, but short on pretty much everything else.

picachudragon14 : This is where my obsession with slendy started xD I have always wanted to be a proxy. the marble hornets and creepypasta series were wicked good too <^^>
Michael Metzger : I have played this game before, and it has serious lag issues on night mode. Day mode is the only mode that has less lag. I need to look down constantly just to avoid lagging on night mode.
D3RK_KNIGHT : cool.
Blue_Longevity : I love this one. This, sadly, is the only Slender game where I don't have a lagging issue. I hope this site gets Slender: The Arrival cause another site I found that game on, almost gave my computer a virus. I love the Slender series so much, I might watch "Marble Hornets" again :D
Scientist : Well here it is.If you play slender haunt or any good graphics slender game think of this one.I think it's 2013.This is where it all started and will continue after the FNAF franchise ends.Slender man will rule then i think.Good memories.★★★★★
