Slenderized

First of all, and I know I've said this multiple times in other places, thanks so much for all of the feedback (positive and negative) on Entry #60. It was a real challenge to shoot, but seeing such a big response to it has been completely amazing and really puts wind in our sails. I wish I could tell you everything about shooting it, but I don't think I can do it justice in this format. I guess it will have to wait for the DVD commentary, or when we get off on some kind of tangent the next time we do a livestream.

Oh by the way, speaking of doing livestreams.

I've been getting a ton of requests for us to stream a playthrough of Slender for all of you fine folks. While I'm sure it would be fun, Joseph, Tim, and I talked about it a few days ago and decided that it would be better if we didn't do so. Not because it's a bad or uninteresting game. On the contrary, I played it myself a few days ago and may or may not have removed my headphones after a certain entity suddenly appeared right in front of me. It's really cool that such a reaction can come from such a simple premise. I just feel that the magic of the game comes from playing it alone, completely immersed, and that a lot of that magic would probably be lost if you had to hear us goofing off while playing it. It's also not a particularly long game by design, so it'd end up being a pretty short event after we played it (and no doubt failed horribly) a few times. So we'll leave this one to you guys for the time being.

But hey, if you're itching to watch someone else play it, I'm sure Mr. Pewdiepie has you covered.

  1. Disappointing, yet unsurprising. I would actually love to hear you guys play it, but perhaps after MH wraps for good?

  3. I think a lot of use have played it or seen it, so we already know about all the magic behind it. Seeing you guys the creators of the greatest Slenderman series goof off whilst playing it would be awesome imo :D.

  4. Even if you arn't going to play the game, you should really live stream another game again, or maybe do a Q&A for the fans.
    Just suggestions, but whatever you all agree on, i always love the livestreams and stay on them for as long as I can anyway.

    1. I'd love to, but it immediately crashes whenever I try to launch it.

  6. I think it would be awesome just to see you play a game by yourself and get freaked out by it. It's fun for everyone to join in, but nothing beats watching someone jump and scream in solitude!

  7. Hey, Troy. ^_^
    Just wanted you to know that the latest entries have been amazing. You guys are really talented and make such a good scary story. XD
    My bestie got me addicted to Slender Man stuff and thus, I found MH, which I've been psyched about every entry since last year.

    I was already wanting to film my own stuff, but you the MH crew, have inspired me to keep on going and never give up. :)
    Done babbling. Just wanted you to know my appreciation, dude. XD
    Can't wait for the next entry!

  8. That's disappointing, but I understand your reasons for it. There's something special about games like this. When it comes to it, it's best to bring it all down to you and Slenderman.

  9. I'd just like to reiterate what I said on Twitter - Entry 60 was one of the most scary, horrifying pieces of live-action anything ever captured on film. Bravo. Consecutive re-watches haven't made it any less terrifying.
