Slender: The Eight Pages was one of the true surprises of 2012—a crude, free PC game that also happened to be one of the scariest games of the year.


We've known for a little while that creator Mark Hadley has been working with Blue Isle on a follow-up called Slender: The Arrival. They've now posted their first teaser trailer for the game, which is coming to PC in 2013. It's got some waaay improved graphics and some nice, Alan Wake-ish atmosphere. And of course, good ol' slendy is back, joined, it looks like, by some freaky dude in a hoodie?

We'll see if lightning can strike twice on this one—part of what made Slender: The Eight Pages so effective was how creepily crude it all was. That said, this looks pretty damned cool.
