For centuries, the mythological entity known as 'The Slender Man' caused fear into the hearts of parents. Children and young adults seem to vanish without a trace when they enter certain forest areas. Parents and local authorities organized search parties to help find their missing children but unfortunately they were unsuccessful.

Continents like North America, Europe, Asia and Africa all have witnesses that claimed they have either seen or caught a glimpse of a tall, slim man with a black suit with no facial features that is rumored to be the one responsible for the abductions of these children.

Now it's up to you, a paranormal investigator to find out more about the Slender man and ultimately find out what happened to the missing children. Will you find out what happened to them before Slender man finds you? The Hunt for Slender man has begun but be warned, for the hunter can become the prey.

The Hunt for Slender man is an interactive text-based horror adventure game where your curiosity about Slender man turns into a nightmare.


  • An interactive colored text game with background images and 3D models.
  • Learn more about Slender man and why he is abducting children
  • Travel different nations and uncover the secrets.
  • Interact with different characters and objects.
  • Choose your own path in this text-based game.
  • Come face to face with the Slender man himself and try to escape his grasp.

Hi everyone, I hope everyone had a great start in this new year.

If you followed my recent twitter posts, you will know what this news post is about. For those who don't know; 'The Hunt for Slenderman' is currently on stand-still. The reason for this is the notebook the project was on, it's hard-drive decided, without warning, to give in. That means it requires a new hard-drive. To make matters worse, there wasn't a backup of 'The Hunt for Slenderman'. Which means that everything that was worked on is now gone.

This is an unfortunate turn of events and as the developer of this game, I apologize to everyone that dearly looked forward to this game. Now the question is, will it be discontinued? Simple answer, NO! Even though everything is lost, this gives me the opportunity to choose one of two choices. Firstly, I can either gather more resources for the and wait until I have my notebook is fixed or I can study game development further and recreate this game into a fully fledged 3D game with some of the same features expressed in the earlier versions (this does not include the text-based mechanic).

I would like to hear you guys thoughts about this decisions that will ultimately help me make the right decision. Comment here, send me a private message or tweet your suggestions to my twitter account here.

Again, I apologize about this bad news but I will still provide some updates over at my twitter account and will have 'The Hunt for Slenderman' up and running again.

Until then, enjoy the rest of the day.

Quite awhile now that I didn't post anything but that's purely because of the hard work I'm putting in my game; 1151 lines of code so far and still lots of coding to do.

While I hate the 1000 slenderman related indie games out there already, making it text based brings down even lower. I have never met a single person who likes text based games.

I like them, but with some tweaking, not just "where yo go up or down?", I mean, something more thinking and original.

Yeah those were just for testing purposes, I'm going to add a decision tree that will allow for better choices and consequences.

Whilst I understand your criticism, this game is going to be more than just an ordinary text-based game. This game is aimed to bring out the mythology of slender man, not a 'search an amount of pages or items to beat the game'. I don't expect people to like this game, and yes, the popularity of text-based games is pretty low, but I will continue developing this game until it's finished.

Looks like an interesting game. It sounds like this will take a long time to develop fully though.

Thanks! Yeah, it's gonna take awhile, especially with the storyline and all the different choices you can make in the game.

I still have a computer, so I'm working on a project that takes images based on motion detection on security cameras.

@chunkengine Are you using JMonkeyEngine to design this engine you're currently working on? Would like to try out your engine!
