Slender: The Arrival is a modernist art game about the forbidden love between two turn-of-the-century French cobblers. Clocking in at around 100 hours of gameplay (not counting the optional riddle minigames), this sweet-natured narrative is punctuated by sliding block puzzles, tongue-in-cheek dating sections, and a surprisingly robust storefront simulation. It's really surprising the game got as much press as it did, considering its unconventional setting, chipper tone, and brief (but surprisingly explicit) lovemaking scene inside the alien spaceship.
It's a really great title, if you hate found-footage games about murderghosts that make you scream and vomit and throw your keyboard across the room.
And now for an actual true statement: if you want to listen to Chris freak out for thirty minutes like someone taped spiders to the insides of his eyelids, this is a pretty good video to watch.
Today’s content features Josh, Chris, Mumbles, and myself. “But Rutskarn!” you exclaim, “Surely the real star of the video is that despicable cad, the Slender Man!” You're not wrong, dear reader. So the question remains: which of the four of us actually is the Slender Man?
You decide. But decide quickly, and whatever you do, when you watch this video…don't turn around.
Because then you won't be able to see the video. Which is, presumably, in front of you. You have used a computer before, right?
Good to be the King?
Which would you rather be: A king in the middle ages, or a lower-income laborer in the 21st century?
