@rocospi: yea you're right, it'd be realy scary if slenderman just grabbed you with no audio or visual ques that he was near. but i guess the game is trying to give you a fighting chance and infecting the same ol horror movie tropes to make it funner. but that should be like a nightmare difficulty after you beat the game.

Just watching this video got me tense. I played the introduction to Amnesia, and that's all the Horror video game I can stand.

Ghoooouls!!!

Ryan's reactions to everything in this video are amazing.

Edited by SeanFoster

I'll sit through almost any horror movie but this? FORGET IT!

Edited by Pie

Man they really need to get Ryan to play through Amnesia on camera

Edited by JeanLuc

Looks like a really cool game. To bad I'll never play it because I'm a huge wuss.

You know who is scarier than Slenderman? Candlejack! He alwa-

Edited by EchoEcho

Anyone judging Slenderman's "scare factor" on the fact that he's "just a skinny guy in a suit, why don't you just punch him in the jaw" doesn't understand the character or horror in general.

This game needs to get it's hands on Vinny's handwritten font.

Edited by spiceninja

I remember this game used to scare me so much I couldn't even play it longer than 2 or 3 minutes. Now I can get through the whole thing without flinching. It's just not scary anymore and I realize it's all on me.

Looks nice.

Edited by Live2bRighteous

I have to admit, that became extremely creepy quite fast.

God damnit... just watching this is freaking me out.

First slender was cool like a pool.

I'm far too jaded in a detached, generic way to find this game at all scary or impressive.

You are my favorite comment of all-time.

...I feel like they are overselling the fear a little bit... but that's just me..

I feel late to party on this, but this new update looks a lot better then the previous versions

Edited by MeatSim

Yup this still has that dread magic the original had.

This is incredibly entertaining

Fucking goddamn fuck this fucking game fuck goddamnit fucker

Edited by Draxyle

Pretty cool that they actually took the time to rebuild this game into a proper, fully featured title. They did a good job from the looks of it.

I don't think I want to subject myself to it, but I already promised myself to pick up the Amnesia sequel when that comes out. I wonder which would be worse for my nerves.

Posted by cooljammer00

I'll never get Slenderman and I'll never get zombies. I guess it takes a lot of active participation. Like I say Candlejack and it's silly.

Oculus Rift - OH MAN, that would be immense

This just reminds me that Patrick needs to build his PC so we can get more Spookin With Scoops. Love that feature.

Posted by cannonballBAM

this was fantastic. i would love to see them play this to completion.

Posted by mrsmiley

Well that was terrifying.

Oh Patrick, please don't call this a 'mythology'.

Eh, as long as there's a story behind a fictional character/place etc., it's mythology in my book. It doesn't have to be good (I don't know shit about Slender Man, so I don't feel qualified to say if his mythology is "good"), but it's still "mythology".

Oh, and my feeble mind absolutely can't tolerate horror games, even a game like this which is based on jump scares. The "HE'S RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU" trope gets me every time, because I'm a scared little baby.

God, you're right. I completely forgot about that. Brad just tweeted that they're building PCs and showed Vinny with a bunch of parts. Hopefully those parts include Patrick's new PC.

God damn it as soon as he entered that building.

Edited by Scrawnto

Really guys? A being that can appear apparently wherever it wants, that has no face, and which is apparently interested in you wouldn't scare you? Maybe video games don't have that effect on you--movies like Paranormal Activity don't bother me one bit, after all--but if you can't even understand why it might be scary to someone else, I think you just have poor imagination and abstraction skills.

I think Patrick said on ILM that he'd join them to watch them build it so he could see how it's done before he builds his.

Edited by Ravelle

Amazing quicklook, let's hope Patrick is going to do something with it. We need more Spookin' with Scoops.

Edited by Sabata

I hope $20 mode is still in this.

Edited by Vuud

Patrick+Ryan endurance run? I demand it! They also have to have all lights off, wearing headphones and a camera on them so we can see their reactions.

Posted by manbot47

i think either Ryan or Patrick should be locked in the shrink shack alone with the lights off playing this game

Edited by CitizenCoffeeCake

That was a good Quick Look Mr. Klepek. I enjoy hearing freaked out Patrick and Ryan.

Edited by Serpentenema

OH NO FACELESS SUIT MAN HE'S GONNA... stand at us. Without eyes he can't even stare. Poor bastard. I will never understand this overwhelming fear some people have of a skinny guy in professional attire. At least there's no 'scare' camera. The only time that's done well is when 'The Rock' is involved.

Supergreatfriend truly is, a super great friend.

I guess it's a bit too young to be considered mythology. And I don't mean that in the "it must be ancient" kind of way, but as of right now, people who know about Slender Man also know it was all made up in a creepypasta thread. Give it 10 more years and we'll see if people still talk about Slender Man, and if it's origins have fallen into obscurity at that point. If both statements are true by then, I'd say we can safely call it mythology, just like Chupacabra myth, which was invented in 1995[1][2], but which in the near 20 years since has grown into a mythology of it's own, where some believe it's been around for centuries.

Holy. Every corner Patrick turned I cringed. GOING SO FAST

I hate and love this game at the same time.

Imagine if all urban myths were made in photoshop. The bar for horror has been lowered significantly. Thanks computers.

It's not the first time it's happened. Chupacabras appeared in 1995 after Species went up in theatres.

Man I wasn't sure a slender game could scare me since I've known how slenderman came to be from the start, but man at about 15 mins into this video its kinda creeping me out. I think I'll get this.

Posted by Klager

I thought I would play the first 30 minutes of this before I watched the Quick Look.

I've put on a fresh pair of pantaloons, and I am sticking to the Quick Look.

Edited by JoeyRavn

This was great. Patrick was genuinely terrified, and Ryan was almost there :P

Posted by l4wd0g

I didn't think the eight pages was scary, this seems pretty good. By good I mean scary.
