A New Contest Haunts Your Xbox One & PS4

We just launched Slender: The Arrival on Xbox®One and Playstation®4, and to celebrate we’re taking advantage of their awesome new video recording capabilities with a brand new contest! Here’s a look:

“Whispers around the town of Oakside Park speak of a legend. Many longtime residents will know of it, fearing the tale as children and growing old enough to eventually pass it along to children of their own. It speaks of a voice in the woods, a soft and alluring melody known to draw inquisitive wanderers deep into the forest where they are never to be seen again.

Many believe the voice to belong to an old woman named Frieda who has long since passed, tragically taking her grandchildren with her. Frieda’s gravestone can still be found on an old homestead just outside of town. Is this simply an urban legend concocted by worried parents to keep their children from getting lost in the woods, or is there something more to it..?”

Throughout the game on any given play session there is a small chance that a melody sung by a calming voice will play whenever you venture through outdoor environments. If you can capture a recording of the voice through your Xbox®One or Playstation®4 consoles, upload it as an unlisted video, and send the URL our way to prove it is more than a mere urban legend, you will have a chance to win some great giveaways courtesy of Blue Isle Studios.


Prizes include Slender: The Arrival scrapbooks, signed lithographs as well as t-shirts. Some of these scrapbooks have been meticulously handcrafted resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind authentic memento impossible to find anywhere else.

  1. There will be 20 prize draws in total.

  2. 3 Grand Prize Draws: 1 handwritten scrapbook, 1 t-shirt and 1 signed lithograph

  3. Remaining draws: Chance at a scrapbook replica, t-shirt or signed lithograph
