Is the new game going to be free?Slender: The Arrival is a commercial release - this means the game will not be free.
The original Slender is free, why does this game cost money?Slender is a short, experimental game created and released for free by Mark Hadley. Consider it an early prototype, demo, or test. Fortunately, that experiment worked better than expected and his game became a worldwide phenomenon. Slender: The Arrival takes the best elements from the original game while expanding and improving every single aspect. We are turning Slender into a proper single player experience. The game will have vastly improved visuals, sound, more levels, and a story to tell. There is a lot more to the game this time around and we think it will be well worth it.
How much will the game cost?The game has a final retail price of $10.
How is the game distributed?The Arrival will be purchasable online as a downloadable game. We will launch a Steam Greenlight campaign in the near future. Additionally, the game will be placed for sale on many other popular game download services.
Other than PC, what other platforms will the game release on?The Arrival will be released first for PC, followed shortly by a Mac version. Linux is receiving a hard look and will have details soon.
What about consoles and mobile phones?Our goal is to get the game in the hands of as many players as possible. We are very seriously considering developing Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and mobile versions of the game.
Based upon the character Slender Man created by Eric "Victor Surge" Knudsen
