Slenderman to "Arrive" on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3
The original Slenderman: The Eight Pages was a viral hit, with hordes of gamers having the pants scared off of them. These gamers would share the game with their friends who would also have their pants scared off and this continued until the world hit a trouser shortage – it was that effective with creating an unsettling horror atmosphere. It was later followed by a sequel, Slenderman: The Arrival, which saw similar gameplay only met with higher production values and a much longer gameplay time. Slenderman: The Arrival has well and truly established itself on PCs but console gamers haven’t encountered the faceless menace yet…but they will very soon.
Blue Isle Studios and Midnight City (Independent publisher of Majesco Entertainment) are bringing Slenderman to consoles as a downloadable title. This is from the official press release:
You’re on your own. No one to come for you. No one to help you. No one to hear you scream. Slender: The Arrival, the official Slender Man video game, is coming September 23, 2014 on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and September 24, 2014 on the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, announced Midnight City, the independent publishing label of Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of games for the mass market.
