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

TSP does not actually require Half Life 2 on PC, only the Source SDK which should download automatically when you start the game. On Mac, HL2 is required.

What is new or different about the standalone? I just want to know otherwise there seems to be no point in buying it after having already played the mod

The HD one is different to this one in many ways, but it's also similar too. But mainly different.

Well great job on the release of the new stuff guys! Even though i don't have any money to play your awesome mod (Probably when i actually get a job, credit card, and stuff like that, which is like 10 years from now.) but great job on finishing The Stanley Parable HD Remix! Can't wait to see your future projects!

And playing this 10 years in the future!

And why is that? Because you think i would try to pirate the game?

I would have really bought it if i actually have money, or a credit card, or even a job it makes any sense to you.

Saving money from my parents is a waste, since i won't be able to spend it here, since, no credit cards.

Credit cards in my country costs a lot more than some of the payed games here combined.

1 $ here equals Rp. +10.000 in my country, which is saying a lot since i only got Rp. +2.000 a day to save, which means i would have to wait 3 months or so to have the money, not to mention if i need a credit card, which also costs a lot and needs me to be atleast +21 years old with a stable income of about $100, or in my country would mean about Rp. 1.000.000, which is simply too much.

Why don't you think of the condition of the people saying these kinds of stuff before saying or indicating that i'm a worthless pirate.
Besides, i've made mods before, i know the effort and pain those guys have gone through, i still respect their work, do you see me begging, no.

It's a standalone. Plus they have permission by Valve to sell it for money, pretty much they bought the Source Engine Licence

Lowest Rated (10 agree) 4/10

it seems that i am the only one who doesn't like this map, (it's not a mod). I played both endings, and also did take the right door in the middle of the map, and again both options that are given there. So, i played it fully through. When i first read a lot of comments and reviews about this single small map i was really interested to see what people where talking about. What was it that made them all give this map a rating of nines and tens (9/10). But ones i played it i thought i missed something…
