A little over a week ago we featured a game called Slender. We found it to be absolutely and completely terrifying. Just uttering it’s name seems to bring a chill to the air around you. Well the internet seems to be in love with this game and a small community of modders announced their plans to release an updated version of Slender, called Slender: Source. If you haven’t taken the time to play the original, give yourself a few minutes and download it from Parsec Productions. (UPDATE: The folks over at Parsec Productions are working on a new version of the game, with updated graphics called Slender: The Arrival.)
The new version based in the world of “The Slender Man” will include multiplayer. Now you and a small group of close friends can aimlessly stumble through the terrifying trees together. This new mode will focus heavily on cooperation and it will be very interesting to see how this is incorporated into such a personal experience. The players must also seek out creepy porcelain dolls because who doesn’t love a collection of dead-eyed dolls staring you down while you’re being chased through the woods by a man with tentacles for arms.
We have little information at this time, but the team working on the game plans on releasing updates frequently on their mod db page. Currently Slender: Source is scheduled for release in February or March of 2013.
