Slender's Woods is a short horror game about a mythical creature Slender man. One of the main reasons this game was made is to show a different atmosphere and gameplay done with the Slender man character. The goal is not to collect a certain amount of objects to win like in the most Slender tributes/clones. This game is more about storytelling and puzzle solving. The development started a month after the original Slender game by Agent Parsec came out. The game features two modes with different gameplay: 1.Story mode, the main feature of the game, which plays like a quest with the enemy chasing you. You have to visit various locations, pick up/use items and solve the puzzles. 2.Page collecting mode. This mode is added just as a bonus for the fans of the original game. You have to collect a certain amount of pages in the woods to survive. See the text file for the list of controls and important tips.

Finally, after months of development, the first version of the game is released. I'm very glad that I've managed to put the project together. Every idea I've had in mind is in the game now and I feel satisfied. I would like to thank all my friends for helping me out, especially the composer and the artist. Thank you guys.

This is just a first version, so obviously it has some bugs in it which I can't fix right now. Also, the mac and linux ports are theoretically possible, but I'm not sure if I can make them right now. Will it be published at desura? Probably.

Just in case, I want to tell something important to everybody. I know that the Slender man character is being overhyped by now. Many Slender clones came out after the original game by Parsec (probably more than 20, I think). The bad thing about it is that almost none of them hadn't any fresh ideas or different types of gameplay, which made some people hate Slender man and games about him. I've started developing Slender's Woods in the summer, so obviously I couldn't turn back when most of the game was done.

If you simply hate Slender man and games about him, I understand. In that case, just avoid my game. I don't want any hating on this page. I made this game just because I really liked the original concept and I wanted to do something new with it. I think the idea of Slender man in a game has a lot of potential.

I hope the fans of horror games will enjoy my look at the slender man character. If you have any problems with the game, just PM me, I'll try to help.

I am already playing it, and it's awesome; I got some nice scares where I screamed XD and i'm amazed by the fact that you did all of this with eduke32 (which I love!), the level of quality of the overall product is great, and is an enjoyable experience!

And you are right about the amount of mediocre slender games coming out all the time, sad thing really, 'cos I'm sure lots of people will avoid this particular game thinking it's just another clone...

Well, Cheers to you and your project! hope to see more games coming from you!
