A top-down game would be hard unless the map rotated so that players always faced forward. Because Slender moves so fast later on in the game. making 90 or 45 degree turns with a top-down view would result in instant death. That's why Slender works best as a first person game.
I think it would be best if Slender were ported to Flash. Since it was made in Unity, it should be playable in a browser.
See, that's a good idea. Obviously, the 3D game would be more effective, but just because it's first-person doesn't mean it can't be somewhat suspenseful if it was in 2D. A randomly generated map would supply a better "scarefest" than a precreated map.
And I don't care if it's a "dead meme." It's MASS popular now, so why not take advantage? If anything, it can inspire a style of game that hasn't been tried yet. Things like point-and-click games were original at one time, after all.
