Well, It just makes you jump really.
But apparently playing in the dark is worse

Play it at night alone with all of the lights off and it's kind of creepy and will give you some jump scares.
Other than that, not really.

what a topic. "horror" games now actually mean "pop up screamer" instead of "helplessness and fear"

i thought slender was a bit scary at first but after the 3rd or so time of being "spooked" you see the game for what it really is: fucking slow and boring.

The way people describe Slender, you'd think it was Ghoul's Forest 3 (which is basically nonstop screaming). Slender is like a ton of other horror games, the exception being that the gameplay moves really slowly, which makes the entire experience a lot more tense and drawn out. If you take that out and were actually able to move at a normal speed, the game wouldn't be anything special.

Not scary. Probably will make you jump, but not scary at all.
