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's actually best if you don't know anything about it before you play it :D

Big news! New website! New game! New photos! The English language is not nuanced enough to convey all the implications!

Posted by Cakebread on Mar 12th, 2012

Aw shit, it's announcement day! Y'all ready for this?

First, the launch of my new site and game developement studio, Galactic Cafe!
I very literally mean that this would not have happened without the support and love that you guys here on ModDB have shown Stanley Parable. It is because of you that I can now say for sure that I am a game designer. Thank you.

Second, The Stanley Parable: Mobile Edition! Soon when you're describing TSP to a friend and they say "wow that sounds like shit!" you'll be able to pull out your phone and prove them wrong! Or just stop being friends with them! These are both viable solutions to the problem!

Third, new screenshots of The Stanley Parable: HD Remix! Spend the next 6 months oogling over them for clues and easter eggs, anything to answer the most burning of questions about this remake! "How many weapons can Stanley carry at once?" "Will you be able to kill the Narrator?" "Will Stanley ever return to his home planet of Xargnax or will we only see it in flashback?"

And for the ADD amongst you, my twitter will be constantly updated with only the most ripe info on the development of these games.

I welcome the criticism that I'm just cashing in. But the reality is that a) it's not taking any development time away from me personally, b) I actually do need money. Would you rather I were doing this or contract work for a AAA studio? c) TSP will now reach a much broader audience than it ever would have before, and d) the story has been adapted for this platform in a way that is actually exciting to me. It is now specifically addressing social networking on smartphones, every ending has been changed in some way to reflect the fact that you're playing it on a mobile device. There is quite a bit of unique content in this version that you won't find in any other, and if you can work with me on the first 3 points, I'm going to try to make the content in this version the best it can possibly be.

The game should be free, but each additional ending should require an in-app purchase.

I was never the biggest fan of TSP. I liked it, and it thought it was clever, but it's not really the kind of game I would buy and I don't think it's something that be done more than once and have the same impact.

While it's always nice to see modders become full time game makers, I really hope you don't become one of those guys that makes the same game over and over again.

Not sure. But the fact that DE did so well has definitely given me a lot to think about...

I saw lots of dynamic shadows in the trailers, I assume you guys are going over to the ASW engine?
