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

I'm looking for level designers interested in remaking The Stanley Parable, or in future work

Posted by Cakebread on Aug 8th, 2011

I've hinted at it on a number of occasions, but I can tell you now that I'll definitely be remaking The Stanley Parable. Of course you may have noticed that my mapping skills are less than amazing, so I'm recruiting people with an actual game design skillset. Consider applying if you're capable at any of the following:

-Level design and mapping (on any engine, not just Source)
-Sound design
-In-game animation

Even if I don't take you onto the remake, I may also consider you for future work. Email me with links to your work at Thanks guys, hope to make something cool with you!

i have only half of the mapping hours but i can say ive made better level design jobs so far. its not about how many hours you have spent with opened sdk, if you make better for less time, its ok. However, I can help you with mapping, but just for source and gold engine.

Sad this is going commercial, but this is understandable and hopefully will push the quality of the game higher. Also, I am curious as to why you are not recruiting any coders?

I have a few coders already interested, and will bring on more as necessary. And trust me, this is not going as commercial as you think it is.

This game is really really awesome, and if it's going to be remade, I look forward to it. I enjoyed playing it though.

Translation? To other languages?
I can help you with that... well, just spanish. I don't have ''hours of translation'', but I can do the work.

You Don't need to remake it, I think it's perfect.

I must say that I am a bit on the lazy side before jumping into this. As for how long my experience has been, I can't really count the hours. I started when I was 13 and first got into Halo: Custom Edition with 3D Modeling (Autodesk 3ds Max). Since you could directly imported a model (sealed mesh of course) as a level, I fell in love with this and experimented for the longest time. I'd say 2 years on and off with the modeling. However, I haven't really gotten into making my own textures for any of my models. I've also hosted and created maps for a Garrysmod server under a gamemode which isn't so interesting (GJail). I changed the gamemode around a lot and pretty much made my own version. I always wanted to make my own beautiful map, I got really far most of the time then just got tired or bored and gave up (Note the "lazy side" comment above). After that I started playing around with the Unreal Development Kit (2011), but never got too into it as I grew tired of attempting to learn UnrealScript. Although, I did make a couple nice test levels.

I might have left a few things out, but I think the above information should suffice as a means of understanding my experience. Also note that the Halo: Custom Edition 'phase' was roughly 6 years ago.

I just sent you an Email. I'd be willing to work on the remake in my spare time, and I've got plenty of level design experience under my belt.

I don't see why you would remake it, it is already quite perfect.

This is a really epic mod. I wished that there were more mods or games that were made like this.

I'm glad that you understand that epic level design or graphics doesn't make a game success. Story IS the most important part of a any video game.

Good luck with the remake.

I am interested ti this. I could do mapping and texture design (a bit) if you need it.
I could also do translation in Italian (only text I think).

You should totally get together with Shadgrimgrvy, the guy who made the Paranoia and Insomnia maps. I bet together you guys could really come up with an amazing mod.
