Prison as seen in the trailer.

The Prison is the 7th map of the Slenderman's Shadow series and, as the title shows, it takes place in a prison. It was released on October 8, 2012. Ausmed by the hand holding the light you are play a middle aged man. The goal is to collect all 8 photographs and escape the prison before Slender Man catches the player.


  • Slender Man has a new model in this map: he looks a bit thinner and slightly smaller than the previous model, has a greyish suit and his head looks egg-shaped.
  • There is new music for when you collect the photographs. Which goes on to be the item theme for the Slenderman Shadows game.
  • If you try to go in between a toilet and a bed in one of the cells, you may glitch through the map.
  • Prison is currently the most difficult map in the Slenderman's Shadow series. One of the main reasons is after picking up the 1st photo, you have approximately 130 seconds to collect the other photos and escape the prison before Slender Man catches you.
  • This is the first Slenderman's Shadow Game to use static noises similar to Parsec's.
  • This is the first Slenderman Shadows Game to flash Static on the screen when Slenderman teleports.
  • This is the second map to have randomised locations for the items.
  • This is the fourth map to be completely indoors.
  • This is the first Slendermans Shadow game to have a visible hand for your character.
  • This is the first Slendermans Shadow game to have a short animation when turning your light ON or OFF
  • This is the fifth map in which the Slender Man can slide. He does it the most in this map and mostly when he catches you. He doesn't do it when stalking you however.
  • This is the third map to have the a light break.
  • This is the first map to have your flashlight go out. It will turn on after a short while.
  • This is the first map to have your flashlight turn off without your control.
  • There are several proper flashlights lying around in the prison. Even when your flashlight breaks you cannot pick them up.
  • When you see the screen flash static, it means he has found you and is chasing you. He will often teleport behind you when this happens, in a similar fashion to when he teleports in the original Slender. 
  • There is a distortion of light in the game making the flashlight turn green at times. Despite the rumors, the creators posted on their YouTube channel stating: "It's just the flashlight light being distorted by the fullscreen shader (Chromatic aberration). Nothing to do with Slender Man's proximity". People sometimes confuse it for the screen static flash, which lets you know that Slenderman has found you.
  • Judging by where the player starts in the cafeteria in the prison, there seems to be no entrances or exits out of the prison from that point. However considering his starting location, he could have already been exploring the prison which is unlikely considering he doesn't know where to go, or he could possibly have slender sickness. Making this the fourth character to be effected by slender sickness.
  • Your character can run faster and can run longer in this map.
  • When you start sprinting, it gives away your position and the Slender Man finds you faster.
  • This is the first map that has a hand cursor in the middle of the screen when you are looking at photos/pages.
  • Slender Man's AI has been updated a lot. He is 10 times faster than he used to be.
  • In the Unity remake you are collecting pages instead of photos.
  • The Unity remake prison is much easier then the original.
  • In the Unity remake your flashlight doesnt break.
  • This is the ninth map to intorduce glowsticks. This happend in the Unity remake.
