Scariest & Most Thrilling Game!

This game is the best! The creators really understand how to create and manipulate fear. While I do get annoyed by Slender's frequent teleportation, it does add another element of surprise to the game. I played the free version, became obsessed, and had to download the full version.

The full version offers additional settings, including the ability to play during a thunderstorm and set the game level to "Insanity" (pretty's insane). If you want to be scared out of your mind in a non-gruesome yet completely terrifying way, then this is the game for you.

This is a great scary game.

•This game creeps me out and it is fun. It can get boring though so add special modes like where you can be slender man or something like that. You don’t have to do that just so you know.😃😀

•Here is one thing that you can do: The main menu music is deeper toned and I like the more scary higher pitch sounding music. It is kind of nostalgic for me to hear the higher pitched menu music. Can you make an option on the options please.😃😀

•I hope there is a part 3 to this game too.

It is never not time to fast ,

Definitely worth the money

This is actually more smooth of a game than The Arrival is on the Xbox 360. It also has more actual content, too.

I can't tell if it has more or the same amount of content than I thought it would have. It has four maps. It has two gamemodes. It has four different ambiences to choose for whichever map you chose. So, basically you have dozens of maps, in terms of variety of gameplay.

Not only that, but you can also change the type of light; you can choose a normal flashlight, a limited battery light, a lantern, or no flashlight.

The only thing I want is another slender rising. Slender rising three.

If it happens, I hope there would be a carnival map, a swamp map, a suburb, and a warehouse.
