The Stanley Parable

Guys, this is truly fascinating. You must play it. It's a free MOD for the Source engine. So if you have Steam all you need is the "Source SDK 2007" from the tools section in Steam (which is free) and you can play it. Truly brilliant game design. It's an experimental narrative-driven first person game surrounding the philosophies of choice. I don't even want to say anymore lest I give it away but if you love good writing you should play it. Also, there are multiple...paths you can take. I won't say anymore, but the writing is genius and the voice acting/narrating is very well done. PLAY IT.

There are installation instructions included if you can't figure it out. It should be simple enough, though.

Very interesting. Played two endings so far.

The thing that makes it, for me, is that they got real voice actors in, and the dialogue is well-written. I couldn't play Portal Prelude because of the voices in that.

Awesome. I've seen this type of concept before in Flash games (like Loved and Depict1), but never in an "actual" game. I love it!
