The Stanley Parable is a simple game about storytelling. You will be told a story and then you will be asked to make a choice, except that the choice will not matter. No, sorry, my mistake, the choice matters a great deal. Or maybe...is it that the story doesn't matter? Wait, let me check my notes...

Yes, it says right here. “The Stanley Parable: A simple game about story that makes perfect sense.” Surely that's what it is. I hope. Oh good god I hope that's what The Stanley Parable is. It's just that sometimes I'm so confused, I'm so lost...what is this game? I just want to understand. I don't want to feel alone. Please...can you help me understand what's going on?

The Stanley Parable will be released on Steam for Mac and PC in October 2013

One of the most peculiar games I have ever played... Everyone should give this one a try, it's not a game experience that you can easily forget.

Hey guys, I noticed an update that was going to change the art style of the game due to 2 people becoming offended because of the intro video.
My response to them - Ignore them. You still have a lot of people that like the game regardless. It's not even meant to offend anyone afterall.

Here is this video to better explain why: Youtube.com

Instead of having my traditional new-years wank I played this and was not disappointed in the least. So yes, this game is as enjoyable an experience, if not more so, than wanking.

Though really it is a great nongame with excellent commentary on how idiotic the games industry and gamers can often be. It's certainly worth getting and going through every last little corridor and finding every last 'ending.'

P.S. If you cheat your way to getting the Commitment or Go Outside achievements, die.
