The Stanley Parable

From Valve Developer Community
Jump to: navigation, search


The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end.


The Stanley Parable is based on Portal 2's engine branch. Therefore, much of the documentation on this wiki pertaining to Portal 2 may also apply to The Stanley Parable.


Originally created as a Half-Life 2 mod and turned into a full game (using the Portal 2 engine), The Stanley Parable is a thought-provoking game created by Galactic Cafe that intentionally averts and subverts the very rules of storytelling most games abide by.

Creating a unique dynamic of trust, the player can choose to follow the in-game narrator or to go against him. No matter the choice (even some that exist outside the game world), the game has a response ready, weaving around the general idea of choice that the game sets forth to create.
