Slender: The Arrival


Alternate ending

Successfully complete the game on the Hardcore difficulty to view an alternate ending.

Secret level

Play "Part 1: Prologue", and examine the swing set located to the left of the house. After getting the message, enter the house, and play the piano until another message appears. Go to the back room behind the garage, and turn on the radio. Take the flashlight, then walk outside and examine the post across the street to find the missing person flyer. Once you approach the flyer, you should die. Note: This may require a few attempts. Once at the main menu again, select "New Game", and the secret "glitched" level will start. The message "I'm lost. Can you find me?" will appear to confirm that everything was done correctly. You will now be able to explore the house. Note: There are three versions of this level.

Memories secret level

Play the "Flashback" level, and enter the wooded area. Search for a teddy bear that is leaning against a tree near the edge of the cliff to your left. It appears before you get to the building with the VHS tape player and television screen. Interact with the bear to start the secret "Memories" level.

Collectible locations
