RadarPlays - Slender: The Arrival

Once upon a time some people on some forum wrote about a creepy guy named Slenderman who ate children or something and then a few people made a video game about it and it was really scary. Flash forward to 2013, and Slender has raised the bar for "OH GOD NO" scary games, and the recent release of Slender: The Arrival looks to push the envelope even further. We rounded up the people in the office who enjoy fear the least, sat them down in a dark room, and made them play the new game.
