Terrifying indie game getting a total overhaul

Slender is one of the scariest experiences I've ever had. Mastering the art of simplicity and exploiting it to create a true sense of paranoia and fear, the indie game based on the Slender Man mythos is impossible to forget. Naturally, it's time to make a more advanced version that'll be ever more terrifying!

Slender: The Arrival is a total overhaul of the original game, promising better graphics, more levels, and a real storyline. Unlike the free game, it'll be a commercial release. It is welcome to all of my money. 

I've never been so excited for a game I'm not looking forward to having to play. Oh God.

I have Xbox One codes, which can be used anywhere in the world. Except the town of Fecking, Ireland. To be in with a chance, simply comment below and if you so desire, suggest your idea for an amazing or awful horror game.
