The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. This world was not made for you to understand.

Great 100%

This is the story of Stanley, a person trapped in a surreal world, the world of narrative videogames clichés, with the mysterious narrator as his only ally and adversary .

Good 90%

This game will make fun of you for being a gamer, of itself for being a game and of every little thing about what we expect in a game after many years of playing them. Hillarious writing and awesome voice-acting. A must play.

PS. Pretty short though. Like 4 minutes to beat it :grinning:

Pretty funny and unique game. It started off really strong but after about 1.5 hours of game play it quickly grew repetitive and began to feel a little tedious. I might go back and try to get all the endings at some point, but I grew tired of it before the end of the day. I would recommend this game, but feel free to wait for a sale.
