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

An overwhelming response, and a glimpse at the future

Posted by Cakebread on Aug 5th, 2011

EDIT: I've just created a twitter account to keep you informed on future projects! It's also being moderated by a certain sardonic personality...

Wow, I'm overwhelmed by the response this game has been getting. This graph of the game's views might give you an idea of why my Thursday was like:

Seriously, I could not possibly be more grateful for the attention and response the game has been getting. Ars Technica is doing a sort of 'book club' that I'll be eager to follow, hearing people discuss the game is absolutely fascinating for me.

As far as future projects go, I'm going to start work on a remake of the game featuring the talents of people who are far more skilled at level design than I. If you have a skillset you believe qualifies you to work on the remake, send me an email at I'll update this page with more info later, but for now send me a heads up if you're interested.

Finally, I'll be at PAX this month as an Enforcer, so if you see someone named Cakebread entertaining you in line feel free to stop and say hi!

A remake sounds great, though keep the same narrator, cause He was perfect for the role =)

Damn if I find a mod, think its great and bring 5 friends to play it I feel like super powered! But now bringing my 5 friends to this mod feels sooo little :'( I am happy for you that notch tweeted this and I think he should promote some more mods :D There are many other great mods who also should get more attention :)

Thank you so much for creating this absolutely fantastic mod!

Everything about it is so professionally implemented.

Excellent narrator, superior black humor, remarkable storytelling, and very suspenseful.

Kudos to you for all your hard work.

I look forward to your future projects. I'm sharing this with everyone I know.

I found the mod through the link on Ars Technica.

I hope you get a lot of attention and exposure for your talents and it opens many new doors for you.

Best Wishes.

I actually found this by looking for any good-looking mods to play. After looking through the comments I thought "Wait, Notch tweeted it??".

The usual praises about the narrator.
