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 amazing piece of narrative…
This is what game developers should be focussing on, not generic First-Person-Shooters. Voice acting is superb, with the game offering various endings that do incite varying emotions. Beautifully written, excellently directed, and very engaging.
Overall, it’s a flawless example of entertainment. Simply labelling this as a 'game' does not do it justice. I only seem to enjoy mods now as mainstream games just aren't fresh or original like 'the Stanley Parable'.
Great work champ!

One of the Best Storytelling I've ever seen at a game... So simple, yet so unique

I am simply amazed at how horrifying truth this mod is. We live our lives not to question if our motives are our own but played out for us for the neutral Narrator. This is a brilliant representation of how the American Dream is flawed; in the sense that work without question leading to sanity and sanction thoughts of freedom. If I was any older and played this mod (I am 17 at the moment) I think I would have cried. Defiantly a 10/10.

Very original idea but the overall quality of the project (besides voice acting) is sub-par for sub-par standards

Brilliant, funny, and just plain entertaining.

The Stanley Parable has some pretty interesting moments that make you think.

I really enjoyed playing through this espwcially because of the narrator. i tried all the endings/deaths and they were all entertaining! It was too short though but if they made a longer version it would get 10/10 from me
