Another one of those games that suddenly explodes in popularity for some random reason.

You spend an hour running around a forest and then die. What's the appeal? :D

I played the first one. It was good. I was kinda scared, but not really.

I bought this and played it for about ten minutes. Screamed and closed out of it. They lock the escape button so you are forced to watch.

This is coming from someone who likes these kinds of games. Holy crap...

The full game has a number of locations and has a story mode, and the price is low, sounds good to me.

I'm a huge horror fan but these are so old-school Hollywood style scares. I just don't get in lol

Definitely interested in this.

While I never played the original (didn't think it looked all that good), I did play a ripoff (though seemingly better) version of it on XBLA Indie called White Noise.

Lights off, Astros on . . . it is possibly the most tense experience I've had while playing a game.

I've heard some people even complain about the $5 price point for this game! They seem to believe it should be free. Is it really that short/insubstantial an experience?

I remember paying $5 for games like fl0w and X-Men Arcade on PSN. It's hard to imagine how people would complain about $5 for a game that looks like a solid, well-made experience (based on the trailer).

That gameplay video looks incredibly boring. You just walk around while the camera jerks around looking for paper? Pass.
They're trying to charge for this now? lol

It took a lot of time to make this on a much better engine. I'm just happy it's not $20.

Wow a whole $5, why waste your money when you can spend $60 for real horror games like Resident Evil 6 or Dead Space 3…

This looks like it has better gameplay than Resident Evil 6... ^^

I just preordered this, tried the beta and i really enjoyed it.

Worth the money if you ask me.

Looks a lot better and plays pretty well. One thing that made me laugh was i was interested how the end screen would look so i ran straight towards slender and he poofed away. The key is to scare him it seems.
