I'm keenly waiting for your slender man review. Please, play it with earphone, in the dark tonight!

I didn't make it very far haha.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The first play through,  I made the mistake of going into what I thought was a bathroom, and got cornered. The second play through, I thought I was doing well until I ended up at the place I started, the fog kept getting worse and the sounds more ominous... amazing how terrifying the sounds can be. When it did the TV static, is when I really lost it haha. I hate that so much. I watched the Ring and a very young age, and for months, couldn't trust my television. Seems that fear is still dwelling in the back of my mind somewhere.

The third play through I did even worse. Fun suggestion Nora. I can see some similarities with the Enderman for minecraft. I think I'll need to play it in daylight if I have any hope of finishing though :D.

Also, I'm looking forward to the book excerpts.

Excellent!! Glad you "enjoyed" it. I never made it myself.
As for the book extract, I have it there, but damn I'm hesitating about sending it... It is so crude...

I wouldn't worry about it. The worst that could happen is that it lowers my opinion of you  ;)

But being serious, I wouldn't worry about it... I'll send the reason why in a PM since it's rather crude itself.
