Indie developer Galactic Cafe
has revealed a October 17th release date for their first person exploration game The Stanley Parable, a new rendition of the award-winning 2011 Source mod of the same name.
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. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. This world was not made for you to understand.
But as you explore, slowly, meaning begins to arise, the paradoxes might start to make sense, perhaps you are powerful after all. The game is not here to fight you; it is inviting you to dance.
To help answer your questions on exactly who Stanley is and why he is having so much trouble getting out of an office Galactic Cafe has also offered up a spoiler-free demo on Steam for you to peruse and try your best to understand. Grab it now and while you wait check out the very witty trailer below.
The Stanley Parable is available on Steam for PC
come October 17th.
