👻 SLENDERMAN 2019? | Slender - New Hope 👻

Slenderman is baaaaack! Overall i had fun with this Alpha! I'd love to see more! I personally sucked at finding the 8 pages but that cabbin in the middle of nowhere...Wow...That got me good! i thought i was going to have a heart attack! <3


The game is incredibly slow, even on a good PC, the visual effects are completely overboard, it feels as if they just clicked all the buttons in Unity because they thought it made their game look "good."

The gameplay doesn't work. I found myself running into invisible walls every minute, with a little message that says "Coming in a future update," as if just adding some basic forest terrains and a fence around the edge of the play field is all that hard. The issue with this is that if you're running away, you'll just run into an invisible wall, with no indication before you hit it since it just looks like normal forest beyond the wall.

Worst of all, as far as I can tell, Slenderman doesn't have any physical presence. The game will randomly play some spooky sound effects, and then pops up the Slenderman screamer, which stays there for an uncomfortable amount of time after the animation finishes, before booting you to the main menu. You don't see Slenderman chasing you, you just randomly die and there is no apparent way to evade him.

All the things that would make this interesting, like the multiplayer that it claims to have in the first paragraph of the description, isn't there yet. As of right now, Slender - New Hope is simply a buggy, poorly designed, worse version of Slender - The Eight Pages.

i had no problems with it on untra and i was recording

maybe your pc isnt as good as you think.

It runs smoothly for me and the "clicking all the buttons in unity" looks good to me

stop it get some help try making your own game and watch its going to be hard

(1 edit)

I agree more than enough with the lag(i have a good pc) i get it but if you dont want the wall being there, just press B, it deletes it.

I hope i helped.

(also i have all graphics at the minimum.)


i do not know why i put myself through this, im gonna go back to my hentai games


Bardzo ciekawa gierka ale mi slender się zgubił ale to nie ważne gierka ma wielki potencjał i czekam na nowe aktualizaje :D


I cannot express how great this game is. The ambiance has you on edge throughout the whole experience! I can't wait to see more get added into the game! You can tell by my reactions just how into it I was!



I am very impressed with the game right now! It is a lot scarier than when I first played it, really made me feel uneasy and vulnerable, which is great in a horror game! Can't wait for more updates!


Thanks! I wrote a comment on your video :)

Hi, im currently developing a slenderman game, i could help you with this project.

So i am a huge slender fan and really liked this game. The only complaint i have is that i couldn't really figure out how slender worked LUL. Hope you enjoy the video!

just played the game. Has alot of hope and cannot wait to see the development of the game. Feel free to check out my video on it

Finally, a new Slender game! Slenderman is my favorite horror game monster and seeing him/she/it is so refreshing. Looks like this a big project, I can see an upcoming co-op and mulitplayer. 

So I love the atmosphere and the graphics are on point. Some people may have a hard time dealing with lag though. Also, I think the grass is a little...tall. I feel as if the grass is covering up some of the pages. The game is also a bit dark, too dark imo. I only managed to find 4 of pages, but it appears that I missed some areas though. May you add an audio cue or a stronger visual cue to the papers and slender?

I am excited to see where this game goes in the future. Thank you for bringing Slender back! 

[Edit] Didn't notice those cheats up there!

Hey thank you for your feedback! If you want to change the brightness then start singleplayer mode, press escape and go into the options there is a brightness slider :) and the grass shouldn't cover any pages because the tall grass is mainly in the forest and not on roads. But maybe iam going to add a option for the grass too. Btw great video! :)


I played the game. I was scared 99% of the time so I couldn't finish or even collect 4 pages~!!! Anyways, I am going to finish it! Waiting for the future updates!

i have not played this yet but i will https://www.google.com/search?q=jojo+siwa+gif&rlz=1C1ARAB_en&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=bAz3LAXGPDKj1M%253A%252Cs5kZp9r1qRzY1M%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kRhKmtxOS0_Ik_XJneV4Ko9wFrtBg&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj8keiSiK7kAhVO5awKHQJCCAYQ9QEwBnoECAcQEA&biw=1280&bih=694#


Can't wait to see what you make out of this. Saved the best game for last in this indie romp. That being Yours

Your game start at the 12 min mark

I love this, this is awesome. I love your style of video. How do you get the audio quality so well

(1 edit)

honestly a good sound condensing microphone, and then making sure your audio levels are set before you start recording. My place is pretty echoey so I also use a waffle ((its a mesh foam you put around the microphone)) to help clean up the subtle sounds that just come from my place, a waffle is also great to catch those hard S and P sounds so they aren't so painful on the listeners ears. I use a "blue snowball" microphone. Great little guy if you on a budget https://www.amazon.ca/Blue-Microphones-Snowball-Condenser-Microphone/dp/B006DIA77E/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=blue+snowball&qid=1567294460&s=gateway&sr=8-6


i hate the sound of the sqwish

You and me both friend


I appreciate! :) Awesome video!

This game is very nice! The graphics are pretty good, but as you mentioned in-game; The performance in game could be worked on a bit. Also I think I got some kind of bug that didn't spawn a slenderman or something, i even went out on a search party for him. xD


Your Game Starts at about 5:00 in.

Thank you for your feedback! Yeah.. iam actually working on slenders ai so at the moment there could some bugs but anyways great video!

So I couldn't even play this game. For some reason it was taking up 100% of my CPU and started to lag my computer. Never had this problem before. Was just wondering if this was something to do on your end?


Hey there. Fellow Gamer with potato PC here. I actually get this issue a lot with Unity alpha builds. It's not as optimized as it could be. so what you need to do is not only change the settings, but possibly put your build in the 1000x700 range of resolution, turn shadows, fog, and SSR to the lowest settings, and set your graphics quality to medium (anything lower and you can't read the pages. if this isnt a problem for you, run it lower.)


Heya, So I got the game working and performed my second attempt. I put a review at the end of the video that you can check out.

Thanks for your honest feedback! And iam going to try my best to get this game more optimized. I hope to see more videos in the future! :)




Really enjoyed the experience of playing this game despite it scaring the crap out of me on occasion. If you're interested in seeing the game in it's current state, I invite you to watch this video and laugh at me as I scream out loud.

Pretty entertaining :)

I love the game. Made a video with a quick gameplay run. However, I closed the game once I was done, and tried to fix the issues I was having with video quality (on my end), and now the game wont open. After the unity logo appears, the game crashes with a dialogue box RED "!" over the logo. There's no error code or message and I can't open the unity crash handler either. What do I do?

Thank you! That's strange maybe you should try to reinstall the game.

i tried to reinstall and even removed the registry, but it seems the game just wont play. I tried updating and downgrading unity as well as update drivers. Disabling my firewall and protectio  hasnt done much either


Amazing experience! I unfortunately didn't see Slenderman but I would like to wait for full version, keep it up! Can't wait to play it!

Thank you I appreciate! Maybe slenderman was scared of your fearless haha but great video! hope to see more of them in the future!


Hey. Thank for making such a gorgeous game.

For a game in alpha stage, the graphics look amazing and the gameplay feels really nice. I made a video playing through the game. Unfortunately, at certain point in the video, the game bugged out and all the pages and the Slender character disappeared. Besides that, the game ran smooth.


Hey, thank you for your feedback! :) This wasn't a bug. The pages get spawned randomly on certain locations on the entire map.. if you want to find all pages you have to press [b] to get also access to the unfinished areas. I enjoyed your video! Hope to see more in the future :)


Thanks, I'm very glad that you've enjoyed my video. Sorry, I didn't know that I could press B to get acess to the rest of the areas... I'll be waiting for more updates. Keep the good work!


Dude your sound design and graphics look amazing! Things rustling in the trees and catching glimpses of whatever I can barely see really amps up the scares.

My only complaint so far is that Slenderman seems to crawl around REALLY fast, so escaping from him once he appears is impossible, and with him suddenly showing up behind you randomly, such as in the church towards the end of the video or even his head poking through a wall being enough to kill me it makes gameplay brutally difficult.

Thanks man! Your totally right iam working on a new AI-method for the Slenderman.. not sure when it gets done. Awesome video it would be great to see more of them in the future! :)


I'd be more than happy to keep playing Slender New Hope once it's fully ready. :)


Very nice, i'm liking this project so far. Looking forward to co-op mode!

Thank you! Iam working on it ;)


Not bad for an Alpha, ver short but it was expected. The graphics were very nice, defo an upgrade  for a Slenderman game. Few things, I do wish there was a different take on Slenderman than just "collect these pages" its been done before many many times, but, in saying that, I am looking forward to the finished product 


Thank you for your feedback and your entertaining video! Maybe after the game got released iam going to add more game modes but at the moment there is only the old concept. :)


(spanish play-through) the game is amazing scary i had a blast playing, and to find out only one person is working on it O: keep up the amazing work friend! i look forward to the full release :D

I appreciate it! :)


Hi there, I recently downloaded your game to hopefully record a video on but I wasn't able to because the game is heavily graphically demanding as I put everything on low and the game still had at least 1-3 fps. My PC can play games on low, usually, which means your game is un-optimised. I am still pretty excited to play the game but I am unable to if the framerate can't reach at lease 10-20 fps.

Also, yes.... you could consider my PC a potato PC lol

Thanks! Well, I think iam not able to optimize the game much more because I did almost everything to optimize the game... try to disable shadows (they need the most resources) then set ssr to low. That's everything you can right now. Stay tuned for performance updates! :)


Thanks for the reply. I will patiently wait for updates on this game to see if the performance can increase for my system. One question although, why do you allow access to options in-game but not in-menu? Because I had to play the game, in order to visit the options menu as it was locked in the menu part.


Hi the options are locked because I haven't wrote a script yet. It sounds stupid but that's how it is :D Iam going to change that soon! :)


I made a Let's Play! 

Cool concept, except you get killed without seeing Slender anywhere so that's a bummer but good graphics and everything!

I will be recording more, honestly just because I sucked here haha but yeah, I'll be waiting for future updates to come!

Thank you! This is a bug iam going to fix it soon :)


looks nice can we play it with a friend i can host the server or somthing 

Currently there is no way to play this game online



A part 2 I recorded before the recent update. Will definitely return to record more once the online multiplayer is added!


awesome! but you will have to wait a little for the multiplayer the get released


No worries! I will continue to follow this game in the meantime 


This was a good game, made a video on it. slender is back

Enjoyed it!


So, I downloaded this game and referenced to my friends and OMG we had the BEST time! Since we aren't allowed to play games at school, we ended up sitting at lunchtime in a dark corner. AND LET ME TELL YOU, this game attracted a lot of attention. At one point I reckon we were surrounded by at least 10 kids from multiple grades, all waiting to see my friends get scared! (Every Time there was a jump scare, us girls would jump into each other's arms)

Yet we have a few suggestions! (please take note)

- When turning the view, like left and right, it is sort of slow and a little annoying

- Proxies? We haven't seen any, so we wonder if you've put any into the game


MULTIPLAYER We have already decided that when multiplayer comes out we are just going to have a giant sleepover and be scared a incredible amount!!!

And when multiplayer is a thing, I wonder if you've planned for different game modes? What about, one time, one of the players is slender and must kill everyone?

ALSO have you planned a player limit for multiplayer? I honestly think we would need maybe 4 people or even, (with a larger map) maybe even 6 people!

We've really spammed you with suggestions (sorry lol), but trust us, when multiplayer is released we are gonna go crazy. 

Hey, thank you for the massive feedback! :) Iam going to add a mouse sensitivity option in the next update to let the player customize it easily. What do you mean by proxies? Currently there are no different game modes planed for the local- and online multiplayer... maybe there will be but right now iam focused on developing the map. There will be a player limit of 2 for the local-coop. At the moment iam not sure which player limit will be set to the online multiplayer. Iam thankful for every suggestion! :)

Proxies are like Slendermans minions from Slender The Arrival.Basically brainwashed and drained people. I feel like Slenderman is enough of a constant threat that proxies would be way too overbearing.

well I’m not very sure what proxies are myself HOWEVER I believe they are like slender’s ‘side kicks?’


I think I may have bugged the game a wee bit....either that or Slender is afraid of Baldy Bearded Scotsmen...Could we have finally found his true weakness? :P 


God damn... I think he was really scared of you man! Going to make him tougher in the future updates! :D


Nah he'll always fear Baldy bearded Scotsmen :D it's his only weakness


Please make a full game! Lots of potential xD I sucked!

Interesting video haha. I like it! Iam working on it!


Thank you ^_^


I played this game(german) and i shit myself... 

Haha nice!


Hopefully Mark notices this game.


Who is Mark?


I think he means Markiplier


Well, that would make sense haha


Had a lot of fun and is really interesting resurrection of the Slender franchise. Can't wait until multiplayer and the areas become updated in future! 


Thanks man! I appreciate :) btw I really enjoyed your video!

(1 edit) (+2)

Hello there creator. If you wanna know. I played your game and i put it on my channel. it really got me this one. It seems like slenderman wants to jump on me and the sound effect in the woods when he getting closer to you of breaking those branches... my god... i hope i can see more of this game and let me know what you think of the video. enjoy!

PS: send me a message when you have the full game
