There aren't many things that make me feel old, but totally not understanding the phenomenon that is Slenderman is high up on that very short list. Per Wikipedia, it originated on the Something Awful forums as a made up myth, and it sort of went from there, taking on a life of its own. Since no one technically owns the Slenderman IP, everyone and anyone can make games using him. There's a ton on the App Store, and most Slender-fans consider Slender Rising to be among the best.

Well, Slender Rising 2 [$3.99] just hit the App Store, and it was among the many games I streamed today. The graphics are good, which makes sense considering it's an Unreal game. You basically wander around, collecting signs or taking photos of ghosts, and avoiding Slenderman.

People on our forums are stoked for the game, and if you liked the original, or any of the Slender games, you sort of need to pick this up. We'll have a review of it shortly, so if you want to wait for that before downloading, rock on.

      That is very demonic, satan-worshipping writing style. I'm scared.

    Aww, I love slenderman. I remember one of my friends playing it and then freaking out every time slenderman got him, even though it really isn't that scary.

    Played it 5 mins and got bored didn't get the point even when I saw the slender man I yawned and switched off!

    I jumped 2 minutes into the game... That is enough gaming for tonight. I'll try again in the afternoon when the sun is out 🙂

    I cannot understand the appeal of these games. It is extremely difficult to navigate and this frustration is a deal breaker for me...

      You must immerse yourself into it. Play in the dark with your headphones on. Do that and you will instead break urine and soil your pants.
