So... Anyone here played the Stanley Parable?

Postby Icebelly Yoshi » Mon Feb 03, 2014 10:38 pm

See title.
Basically the Stanley Parable is one of those games with so many different endings that it'll make your head spin.
Not gonna be too easy to discuss considering spoilers and whatnot.
So I'll just put a big giant spoiler warning here.

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!
!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!

So yeah. Stanley parable. Good game, bit of a mindfuck at times and it's has moments where it takes meta to a whole new meaning. The narrator will often break the fourth wall, and it's simply awesome.

I think there are around 14 different endings?

I'll simply state the endings I've found. No walk through or any real details to them.

Escape ending, Nuke ending, Museum ending, Insanity ending, Game break ending, confusion ending, Map break ending,
Space ending, whiteboard ending, Apartment ending, Bad listener ending.

Maybe you'll recognize some of these if you've played the game.

Personally I loved the bad listener ending. The game took on some creepiness and even seemed to change games with that ending.

!!!SPOILER OVER!!!
!!!SPOILER OVER!!!
!!!SPOILER OVER!!!
!!!SPOILER OVER!!!
!!!SPOILER OVER!!!


So what do you guys think of this game?
What was your favorite ending?

I skipped over the !!!SPOILER!!! section of the post because I don't even know what the Stanley Parable IS exactly and would like to. The Steam Store description didn't help much and I'm curious on what the game is, could you elaborate at all without spoilers?

It's really hard to explain the story without spoiling it. The video is entirely right when saying that telling you what it's about will ruin it.
Here's at least a basic idea.
You play as Stanley, a man who works by following orders and pressing buttons. The messages tell him which buttons to press, when to press them, and how long. One day though everything changed, he goes into work and, after sometime, realizes he hasn't had a single order. He gets up and begins to head to the meeting room, maybe he missed a memo.

And it all starts with a choice, the left door, or the right door.
From this moment, you control how the story works. Either you listen to what the narrator tell you, or you go on your own path. Either way it's an interesting ride.

I thought it was a pretty good game. Prime example of an indi game if I ever saw one.

No, but I watched Wraith's lets play on it this morning. It was one of the weirdest games I have ever seen.
Yeah, I've been inactive for a while. Just stopped coming here for whatever reason. Sorry about that. Still, I'll be lurking around more often, especially as I now have a craving to make SMBX levels again.

Stop using a Windows '95, then.

I played the mod, I have yet to play the actual game. I really loved the demo as well. 10/10 game.
I used to be 8bitmushroom but not anymore.
If you need to get in contact with me, message me on Discord, or find me at SMW Central's Discord server where I moderate.
