Slender, the first-person horror game where your only goal is to find 8 manuscripts about the Slender Man, has received a major new update. The game is still in beta, therefore free for mass consumption.
The game’s plot is as simple as it is scary. The more directly you interact with the Slender Man, the faster you lose your sanity.
To make matters worse, in version 0.9.6 fog now starts out almost non-existent, and gets more dense as more pages are collected.
The update enables the enemy to appear more often in areas you just can't see. Gamers would previously see him only in areas where the player looked straight forward.
“This will allow him to appear, for example, in front of you but behind a tree,” according to Parsec Productions.
A one-second cool-down has been added after jogging/sprinting before the stamina starts to recover. Avid players of the horror game will also notice that their flashlight now swings back up in front of them a little bit slower than before.
The enemy's speed has also been slightly reduced to compensate for these two changes.
The game’s menu now offers the option to change the mouse sensitivity, and tweak a few extra graphics options. This should help with frame rate issues too, says Parsec. Other changes are enumerated below:
· Fixed a bug where the enemy would sometimes appear partially inside a wall.
· Fixed a bug where tree leaves would light up if the flashlight was anywhere near the tree. Also added a small amount of wind movement on the leaves.
· Removed "Map" button from input control list (there was never a map).
