First of all, I’m not an easily-scared guy. My roommate is going to be doing a lot more out-of-town traveling for her job so the house will be empty more often. I’m not afraid of being alone in this big ol’ house because 1) We’re in a cul-de-sac (I just learned how to spell this word) which are typically safer, so I’ve heard, and 2) It’s highly unlikely that a monster should just happen upon our residence with the intent of horribly maiming me.
That being said, I am a total baby when it comes to horror stuff. Movies, shows, haunted houses, games. I can’t do it. They’re just too much and actually enjoy non-nightmare-infested sleep cycles. Fictitious stuff terrifies me in a way that nothing real ever could and I’ve seen those man-eating spiders from Australia.
I want to change this. I went ahead and downloaded Slender: The Eight Pages and played a few
minutes seconds of it before I went all /nopenopenope. I didn’t get caught, I just got bored waiting to die. I grabbed the first note in the bathroom-looking area, the thundering footsteps started, and I just turned off my flashlight and started at the door waiting for slendy to come and kill me (or whatever he does). He never came, so I just quit and sat in my chair for a few minutes with my legs folded under my bum and snuggled in my blanket.
I am going to attempt to get through the game though… or at least another note. I’ll just have to do it during the day, while my roommate is home, with all the lights on and the sound off. Maybe, just maybe, then I won’t get so scared.
whether or not how many times I pee my pants, I might get the next installment, Slender: The Arrival which looks WAY more terrifying. I only saw the trailer and already I was in /nopenopenope mode.
When I do finally work up the courage to play The Eight Pages, I will have to record my sessions so you guys can see how much of a baby I really am.
