Slender-Man started as a message board meme, then was turned into a game that was then tweaked and riffed on many, many times over. This isn’t even an “official” game, but it’s the most solid of a very large stack of Slender games on the Play Store.
So what’s the deal with Slender-Man? Essentially, you’re challenged to retrieve eight notes of paper from around a nighttime environment, including forest and interior areas—but every so often, you’ll glimpse a tall, thin, faceless man in a suit. And when you do, turn around and run. Otherwise, the screen will turn fuzzy and you’ll quickly die. It’s silly, but the immense feeling of dread that hits with each sighting is oddly intoxicating. It’s no surprise this ended up being an Internet sensation.
