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!

Beautiful, I have paid full priced games with less character, wit and personality than this excellent mod, well done.

I could list my order but that would probably be a little spoilerish to the people that haven't played them yet.

This is very good! Love it, actually. Is it merely a test, or an experiment to test out methods for a lager mod?

I figured that was kinda the point.

If a this mod were nothing but beautiful polished maps, the narration would totally loose all of it's impact and purpose.

Do you mind releasing a full soundtrack listing? Amazing mod and the music certainly helped set the mood. The narrator was also spot on.
