PostSubject: Sequel to Slender   Sat Oct 06, 2012 9:35 am

Perhaps I'm a little late with this, but anyways, a sequel to the game "Slender" is on the way:

http://www.shacknews.com/article/75883/slender-the-arrival-creeping-up-on-us

Have anyone else heard of this? I just happened to stumble across it when looking for more Slender games to play (hehe..) and here it is. I personally think it looks awesome, as it's discribed to have a more undergoing story and better graphics, and be even more terrifying than the original.

Also, look at the screenshot. Wohohohoh a realistic forest! I am quite excited for this.

Ok I really do try not to be an elitist hipster, but I have to get this off my chest

I hate everything about the game. The game is against what tall n slender is! Slenderman is supposed to be subtle, unpredictable, hard to see except when he really wants to attack you, and you never know whats coming. Slender is the opposite of what slenderman should be. Just like when anything gets popular, it gets more fans but it also gets more idiots. Slender brings in idiots, idiots slenderman is just like slender, said idiots make a series about said game, and we get predictable and horrible series like goomba's series and oblivious victim. These make people go "huh lets finds a series! WOW THIS IS LIKE THE GAME! I GUESS THIS IS WHAT A SERIES IS" and then it spreads like the cancer of the internet, causuing dumb comments, circlejerking, and "hurr durrr slender wasn't scary stfu about slenderp" and leads to it becoming too popular for its own good. Its a case of over popularity, like justin bieber (I hate justin biebers music, but he is still talented as a singer but so popular it ruins his reputation). Thanks to slender we are famous all over the internet, but for the wrong reasons! everyone on reddit, 4chan, youtube, etc mostly say slenderman is stupid because slender was bad. Now half of steam greenlight is filled with slender copies, and the slender games will only get worse, and we will get more and more until people flame actual series because of this game. Slender man is about subtly, unpredictability, and characters we grow attatched to and actually care about what happens to them. Nobody knows why your in the woods in slender, who you are, or whats going on other then your taking random scrap paper.

TL;DR slender is so popular, its going to ruin the slenderman vlogs.

DISCLAIMER: yes I mad

I'm gonna stop you right there. For the record, we don't use these words on Slender Nation. What do you think this is, 4chan? Come on.

Things that can be construed as hatespeech, such as that word in nearly any context, aren't allowed around here. This is a message to everyone, including some of our newer members: cut that shit out.

As far as the Slender games go: It's a fad, and like all fads, will die out in time. Yes, it's frustrating when people think Slender is the end-all be-all of anything Slenderman, but the fact is that people who don't care to do their research and don't care to get involved won't last long if they actually try to get into the mythos. And chances are, they'll forget about it all and stop caring long before you do.

Having gotten here first and knowing more about it doesn't actually make you any better than people who aren't as invested in it. It just makes you a bit angrier with no real resolution to that in sight.

I apologize. Edited to be less offensive. Couldn't think of a better word for idiots at the time.

Well i have found some other slender maps being developed by a group dedicated to slenderman, they are making new maps, AI, and even a Slender SDK to make your own maps with Very Happy . The Site is called Slendermans Shadow, just google it and it is the 1st on the results list. Sorry, i would post the link, but i'm new here so i can't D:

"Slenderman's Shadow is based off of indie game 'Slender'. It shares the same gameplay elements as the original - you must complete the objective while avoiding the enemy. All our maps are provided for free and are funded by donations."
Developed by Marc Steene and Wray Burgess

Enjoy!

Come to think of it I found this game today when looking at the Slender Wiki and it talked a little about the game. One other thing I noticed that I will admit I'm kinda upset about is the fact that it's not a free download like the first one was. I also noticed after reading a certain part that they said something about wanting to make a third 'Slender' game to make it a trilogy and I thought to myself "Why would they be trying to make a third if the second isn't even released yet?"

But anyway go to google and type in 'Slender:The Arrival' and find the wiki link from google. I know there's not much there but there are other links to click on to.

It makes perfect sense for them not to be free. After all, one suspects that this isn't like the video series. This isn't just a group of kids with a camera fucking around in their free time. This is a studio, doing this as a part- or full-time thing. They need to pay bills.

As for the planning a third game thing, again, good business sense. Depending on how long it takes to develop the third game, I'd assume they'd want to start production on it immediately, rather than wait for a possible runaway hit.

This, all of this.

Not to mention, if people actually have to pay money: the graphics and gameplay will be alot smoother.

Yeah, that's what I thought and I also had the thought that pretty much anyone can edit any Wiki page so.........yeah, I'd expect it to be free. As for now, though, no one really knows until there is more acurate data released for the game. As for actually finding info that's the only thing I could really find at least at the time.

I just hope they don't rush the game like try to just make it and get it done and over with so they can start the third. There are plenty of developers who have done that to games which turned out very glitchy and not as fun to play as those which had more time spent on them.

The arrival looks good. However, the not being free as turned me off of it. If you google "Steam Greenlight Faceless" you'll find a multiplayer co op version of slender, due for release on steam FREE early 2013. That's what I'm waiting for...

Oh, no, trust me, I understand. But what I don't get is why it actually seems to bother some people that they actually might have to pay for something.

I know what it's like to be poor as all hell. (I am right now.) I know what it's like to illegitimately retrieve something from the internet. But I also know that if I was going to put actual effort into something like that, I'd want to be paid. And people who essentially say that they're not going to pay for anything at all strike me immediately as greedy and selfish.

I agree. Its not that fucking comlitated. People make games. It costs money to make games. They need to get some of that money back, so they charge for the game. And to the people who pirate because "waa we shouldnt have to pay", I would just like to say 'fuck you' because if everyone pirates, there no way for the developers to get money, and no way to get money means they will probably just say "to hell with it" and never make a sequel, and give up on their game completely. I don't like slender, in fact I despise it. But I'm glad for their success with it, and I'm extremely glad that it makes a good example for why indie games are good, and for that I thank the slender devs and the people who played it. And when you pirate it, they end up with no money for food and rent, and it discourages other game devs, until there is no indie game genre anymore because nobody wants to work with a business that doesn't make money. If you pirate because you can't afford it, I can understand that and it makes sense to me as long as you try to pay for it eventually.

tl;dr everyone has to make money, and if you think you should get everything free then your either a stupid narcissist or spoiled.

^I refuse to quote that entire post.

But I do agree. I have accidentally clicked on the odd magnet link in my time, but I pay for the games whenever I get the opportunity, if for no other reason than a better service, not to mention putting food in the developers mouths.

Precisely.

For those who don't want to read that entire exchange, I'm fairly certain that the consensus thus far is that having to pay for something is not in any way a legitimate reason to not be interested, and to actually be offended at being asked to pay for something is childish.

The only thing that bothers me about having to pay for something online specificly is the fact that I don't have an active credit card so I have to keep buggin' my parents for their cards so I can buy things like this. Other than that I don't realy have a problem with paying for things with cash. I don't know about other people though.

Because some people think stealing things is okay. :c

I'd buy this game. I think there's still potential for awesome Slenderman video games, but I do think the whole internet needs to chill out with all the Slender-type games of "Collect shit, see Slendy, FLEE!!!, repeat with more panic this time".

But Slender's Woods looks good, and it's not just because I like more puzzle-style and adventure gaming in my survival horror...


... Oh. Guys. Slenderman MMORPG. With puzzles and stuff. Where you could actually group up and fight Proxies, or become a Proxy, or... OMG. Great idea or the greatest idea?

Good, I drink fascist tears for breakfast.

But back on track - I still would like to see more games in the Mythos that go for the puzzle and mystery element, or the Lovecraftian bent. There's not enough out there that actually works with more of the Mythos aspects in it and that's a shame; there's some really eerie concepts for survival horror these people are missing out on...

... I still want to fight Proxies as a game enemy.
