I AM SLENDER is a 2016 horror action-adventure game following the Creepypasta, Slenderman. This Slender game is unique in the fact that you play as Slenderman, and do not simply just run away from him. The game can be played in singleplayer in a story mode, or online or localized multiplayer where Slenderman hunts down the opposing players. The game is being made by EB Industries.
I AM SLENDER lets the player control the mythical and legendary being known as Slenderman. During the story, players must stalk and kill certain victims in different scenarios. The game has a stealth factor, as well as a heartbeat monitor for the victim and a scare level. The player must remain hidden with Slenderman, only appearing when the victim isn't looking. If Slenderman is spotted moving, the player loses and reverts to the previous checkpoint. The game has a highly elaborate stealth system, complete with line of sight and soundlessness.
The player gets to take advantage of all of Slenderman's infamous powers, from causing headaches and static, to teleporting and controlling his tentacles. The player can utilize all of these powers to scare the victim as much as possible, before killing them.
Multiplayer is played with one Slenderman, and however many civilians. The civilians must attempt to locate special weapons that can damage Slenderman. Civilians must reach a certain heartbeat and scare level before the player controlling Slenderman can kill them.
The story consists of Slenderman killing different victims in different scenarios.
