From the article, "I never played Slender. I’ve heard it was scary due to the near constant darkness, crushing isolation and the anxiety of not knowing when Slender Man would appear. That concept sounded intriguing to me, but I was too involved with other games to dive in this world. This time around, I’ve set time aside to get my feet wet with the beta version of Slender: The Arrival. To commemorate this moment, I thought it would be fun to record my reactions during the first few moments of gameplay."
