[Indie Horror Spotlight] ‘Haunted Memories’ Makes Slender Man Scary Again

SlenderSkyrim

When did Slender Man stop being scary? Probably around the time when we saw him, in his entirety, in games like Slender: The Eight Pages and its pseudo-sequel The Arrival. That isn’t to say those games aren’t still terrifying, it’s just that the supernatural entity they’re based on isn’t quite as scary as he was before his recent renaissance. The monster is always less scary when you know what it looks like.

In Haunted Memories (formerly known as Haunt), you’re again being chased through an unfamiliar wilderness, at night, in a storm (that’s new!), by the forest creeper known as the Slender Man. Only this time, he looks scary again. He has this ghostly aura about him, which is only made even more unsettling by the fact that his freaky shadow tendrils are back. Oh, and now he can fly. Or glide, rather, but it’s still terrifying when flies at you for looking at him for too long.

Watch that happen to me in my playthrough of Haunted Memories, which you can find after the jump.

    Btw: Have you ever play Dream of the Blood Moon? it’s another Slender game but very, very beautiful and atmospheric. And has been created with Unreal engine not Unigine. Give it a try, it’s worth of it :)
