Last week Blue Isle Studios teased that they may be bringing Oculus Rift support to Slender: The Arrival. The studio has confirmed to Road to VR that Rift support is indeed on the way.

“I am happy to confirm that we do have official Oculus Rift support integrated already. We showed that for the first time yesterday and we’d love to roll out that update for everyone as soon as possible,” wrote Alex Tintor, Founder of Blue Isle Studios, in an email to Road to VR.

Slender: The Arrival is based on an experimental horror game called Slender: The Eight Pages by Parsec Productions. In it, the player is haunted through the woods by a mysterious creature who wants nothing but to consume your soul. Slender is definitely on my list of scariest games.

Last week, Blue Isle Studios were in Seattle during PAX. They brought with them a build of Slender: The Arrival with native Oculus Rift support, and were showing it at a community event.

We’re expecting to hear more about Oculus Rift support for Slender: The Arrival in the near future. Stay tuned!

    AAAAAAAHHH!!! No-no-no-no-no-no-no-no! >.<

    Over the weekend I watched a lets-play of Outlast by Markiplier.

    Yet another game that would greatly benefit from VR especially because it has minimal HUD elements to begin with as much of this is done through the camera.
    I'd actually discourage you from watching the playthough because the game is so amazing.
    I've actually taken my own advice and not watched a playthrough of Slender: The Arrival yet.

    Kudos to Blue Isle Studios for the push to VR!
