I've been aware of Slender Man as a character and as a meme for a long time now, but I've never really bothered exploring any of his video game incarnations; mostly because I don't fare very well with horror games.

I made the mistake of letting slip this information to fellow video producer Aoife recently, at which point an episode of Late to the Party became somewhat inevitable. You can watch me tackle the prologue and first level of Slender: The Arrival in the video below and learn just how much I swear when frightened. The answer is an awful lot, so viewer discretion is advised.

Also, watch how quickly Aoife can go from screaming to calmly chatting. She calms down faster than anyone I've ever met.

Johnny is one quarter of the Eurogamer video team - specifically the part that looks like it comes from East London. He loves pen and paper role playing games, his dog Watson, and pretty much any video game with a bit of grimdark to it. You are almost certainly pronouncing his surname incorrectly.
