In the wake of the ridiculous amount of attention Mark Hadley’s Slender: The Eight Pages received we were treated to a slew of similarly themed indie horror games that tried to capitalize on Slender’s popularity, with varying degrees of success. It’s because of this that I decided to temporarily split the indies category into two, with one to celebrate the numerous Slender games released last year and the other dedicated to everything else.
After the break you’ll find five Slender games that I feel did enough to warrant inclusion here. Vote on your favorite after the jump!
