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 exactly counts as ending? Only the ones with cinematics at the end or also the ones just ending in the void? What about the button-push? Is this supposed to be an end or is there more possible? Otherwise I did get to 6 different ways it played out. Just had not been sure if this counts as ending and how the button one is planed to be.

How was it short? If you think you're finished, just start a new game and try some other things!

Or you can download the Source 2007 SDK at the 'Tools' section.
You don't really have to install a game to have the engine, but I definitely recommend you to also download Team Fortress 2.

It comes with Valve games, and since TF2 and Alien Swarm are free you can get it for free

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…
