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.

Confusing mod. A little too, out there, for my tastes. Steam release suffers the same issue. Still, ambitious and entertaining.

So, I've downloaded and tried to play the Mac version several times- I have half-life 2 downloaded to my computer via steam, but every time i try to open the stanley parable game, a dialogue box pops up that says "What Is your steam User ID". I enter my user ID and the dialogue box goes away and then the game never actually opens... help?? I don't know anything about mods or anything so I may be completely missing a step??
