The Stanley Parable is an experimental narrative-driven first person game. It is an exploration of choice, freedom, storytelling and reality, all examined through the lens of what it means to play a video game.
You will make a choice that does not matter
You will follow a story that has no end
You will play a game you cannot win
...it's actually best if you don't know anything about it before you play it :D
The Stanley Parable is now available to play in its final form. Please go to Downloads and download the latest version! This has been 2 years in the works for me (working in a 1 person team is awful...), so I'm excited to get it out and get peoples' responses! If you care to, please email me your thoughts at email@example.com, and please submit a review once you've played.
Also I've had requests for a video of gameplay. If you've played the game you might understand why that's a bit...difficult. But I'll try to put something together that at least conveys a sense of the game in some form.
Thanks for checking this out, please let me know if there's something that needs fixing.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Stanley Parable. We love games like Half-Life 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
