The Stanley Parable

The Stanley Parable System Requirements

Published by Galactic Cafe

What we love

1. Based on the award-winning 2011 Source mod of the same name, The Stanley Parable returns with new content, new ideas, a fresh coat of visual paint, and the stunning voicework of Kevan Brighting.

2. The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game.

3. For a more complete and in-depth understanding of what The Stanley Parable is, please try out the free demo.

4. But as you explore, slowly, meaning begins to arise, the paradoxes might start to make sense, perhaps you are powerful after all.

5. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again.

6. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley.

7. The game is not here to fight you; it is inviting you to dance.

8. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story.

9. The game will end, the game will never end.

10. This world was not made for you to understand.

11. You will have a choice, you will have no choice.
