Last year a small indie game called Slender: The Eight Pages terrified gamers and inspired countless YouTube play-through videos. Since then, the developers of Slender have been working to expand upon the game and give it the attention it deserves.
Today, Blue Isle Studios announced that Slender: The Arrival will be released on March 26. The game is now available for pre-order. The price for pre-orders is only $5 – half the price of what the finished retail game will cost – and all pre-orders come with instant access to the beta version of the game. The game’s developers have some Kickstarter-like pricing options available as well. A $15 version of the game also comes with a soundtrack, and a $25 version throws in downloadable paintings. The $60 “Producer’s Edition” includes a thank-you in the game’s credits.
The Arrival is similar to the first game, but includes more levels and content not seen in The Eight Pages. Players will complete objectives while doing their best not to look at the slender man lurking right behind them.
