Eight Pages of Doom

Thanks to Nodwick (specifically the Full Frontal Nerdity webcomic [02 May 2013]) I was introduced to the strange and unsettling game called Slender: The Eight Pages. It's premise is pretty simple, collect 8 pages in some dark foggy woods and don't get caught by the only other thing in that area while doing so.

Easy controls, limited zone, you'd think it would be easy - except the pages spawn in different places each round and your stalker, the Slender Man, is very very sneaky and doesn't "move" in the natural way. In fact, he doesn't move at all if you are looking at him - he just drives you insane when you do. It's rare for a game to be able to scare me so well, but this is one of those cases where a simple game just works and does it's job spectacularly. It's free too so I highly recommend trying it out for yourself!

He's coming to get you.
