Slender: The Arrival is a sequel / re-imagining of the Slender: The Eight Pages game, a survival horror indie title that appeared in 2012. The original game was focused around finding 8 notes scattered around a forest at night. Armed with only a flashlight, players had to explore the forest in first-person whilst avoiding the gaze of The Slender Man, or his proximity. As more notes were collected, The Slender Man became more aggressive, appearing more frequently.
