Hey guys, did any one of you play The Stanley Parable?
The original version is a mod to Half-Life 2, you can easily find it on moddb if you just google the name. It's a very odd game with an air of "2deep4u" to it. You play as Stanley, there is a narrator, you listen to him. You can ignore him, too. The results are unexpected and turn the game more into a discussion on the nature of freedom and choice in video games. There are multiple endings. The whole thing lasts about 30 minutes tops. I really liked it.
Anyway, Davey "Cakebread" Wreden, the creator of the mod, has finished a "HD Remix" version of the game, available on Steam, which is apparently a totally new game with a very similar promise, but it's also going to cost something like 5-10 bucks.
The demo was released yesterday (I think). And the full version is coming in 6 days. I have no idea how to encourage you to try it out, so I'll just leave a link to the demo here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/221910
Though honestly, perhaps you should try the original mod first if you're interested, it's a bit different.
Picture is a screenshot from the demo btw.
Also wow, Pewdie Pie LP'd the game 5 months ago. Damnit. Looks like there's been a massive influx of shitty LPers doing a let's play of the game since. What a shame. It seriously becomes pointless if you don't play it by yourself.
Wow. So that is how it feels like when something you care about is ruined.
Anyway, the LPers were good for something: they contributed to the compilation of more or less spontaneous reactions to experiencing the game, so now you too can experience it in just 1 minute 14 seconds without playing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j428LmPx9tchttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bB4AR5Crb54
<- and here's the teaser trailer for the HD Remix
