It's true, I was stalked by Slender Man in my dreams during the development of the game - complete with the camera effects happening to my vision, asleep, and awake in daydreams. That'll teach me to make a horror game where the AI requires lots of testing. For those that don't know, Slender Man is an urban myth about a tall, faceless, man in a suit who stalks people and causes footage to be corrupted. The Endermen of Minecraft were heavily inspired by it.

Anyway, here are some clips from the game; sorry in advance for the graphics :P Though some people have said they add to the scariness, tell me what you think.

I was given 3-4 weeks to complete a scary game for a Halloween competition on 64Digits and this was the result. If you like weeping angels from Dr. Who then you'll be able to figure out Slendy's AI pretty fast, but I still find it difficult to make it through without blacking out at least once. So give it a play, tell me what you think!

Controls are WASD, left mouse button, and right mouse button. Use them on stuff  :)
Hitting escape will cause you to exit the game immediately.

Very effective psychological horror game, had me genuinely anxious throughout. There's a great pervading sense that something is not quite right, and the introduction with the broken down car was very convincing. Overall, a game that's well worth looking at.

I agree. I was afraid. One thing I didn't like, was that there were so many of the normal masked people.
The first one I saw creeped me out...but after that they weren't scary at all. the tall guy always made me run though.

If I were to change anything, it could be the gun. I might do a knife that when they jump on your, you could stab them.
edit: Oh right, and I would lessen the view bobbing while running. it is WAY too annoying!

Good work!

Pretty good man. 4/5. I only wish I could've figured out what to do after inserting the second video tape. The "go" one. :( Walkthrough or hint to keep me going? x) Great job man.

Incredibly scary! ::lmao::

coco13, after seeing the 'go' video...
Spoiler

My only complaint is that there is little challenge. Otherwise, a good game.

4/5 :thumbsup:

Thanks so much for the replies everyone!

@Joseph/ND - Yeah, those masked guys can get overwhelming before you get the gun. Yet I only placed 2 in the game... If you play again and pass out, immediately run back to where you passed out and look on the ground...

Originally I planned on letting the player pick up rocks and drop them on a fallen masked man to kill one or break a leg. But that just seemed too violent :/

@Vile Smile - Thanks for giving the tip, challenge is definitely my main focus for next projects like this, the lack of it tends to make it less "gamey".

I finally figured out how to embed the Youtube video here in the post so that's done. And this was featured on retroremakes.com (now One Word: Videogames) a little over a week ago!

I saw PewDiePie play this game recently when I was looking for other Slender games, but I didn't realise it was a GM game.

Based on the video and screenshots the graphics and models are nicely done, I'll be sure to play this... Tomorrow, when it's daylight.
