Hello, fellow Trailheads!
First off, I would just like to thank this forum's administrators and moderators for accepting me into this community. Despite being new to this forum, I am not
new to the Slender Man Mythos in its entirety. I am an independent video game developer specializing in the horror genre. I first discovered the Mythos when Mark J. Hadley's popular horror game Slender
(as well as it's sequel The Arrival
) came out in 2012 and 2013. After I played it, I wanted to learn more about the Slender Man. And that's when I came upon the Original Mythos.
Well, enough of my monologue, the reason why I created this forum thread is to introduce to you the newest video game installment in the Slender Man Mythos - The Chaser
is a first-person indie horror video game series created by Darkwood Productions (myself), in association with Blue Isle Studios and Parsec Productions (the developers of Slender: The Arrival
). The game doesn't focus much on Slender Man himself, but rather one of his proxies. In the game Slender: The Arrival
, there's a level where you enter an abandoned mining facility and need to activate 6 generators to power an elevator to escape. This game will serve as both a continuation of The Arrival
and a remake of that level.
This game lets you play as two characters from The Arrival:
Lauren and CR. It contains a series of flashbacks and present day events to unfold one immense story, one that goes deeper into the story behind The Arrival
. Similar to its predecessor, you are armed with only a camcorder and a flashlight. Your only defenses are to shine the flashlight on your enemy, and/or run whenever in danger.
Early Access for The Chaser will begin on Friday, October 13th, 2017 on Steam and GameJolt.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, I am always willing to hear them. I am very into the Mythos so I'll be around frequently if you need anything.
Cheers and keep on creating!
