Quotes

[regular first lines during gameplay]
The Narrator: All of his co-workers were gone. What could it mean? Stanley decided to go to the meeting room; perhaps he had simply missed a memo.

Quirky, Smart and absolutely Hilarious
21 December 2013 | by bilalsyed_786See all my reviews

This is not a game, don't go in expecting copious amounts of balls to the walls action. Instead this is more of an interactive mockumentary about video games ad everyday life. The narrator does an exceptional job of hooking you in and rarely gets boring or repetitive, he is a lot like GladOs from the portal games. Your objective is to either do what you are instructed to or disobey the narrator to try and create your own destiny. The brilliance of the team behind it makes sure each decision or move you make plays out differently and that is the beauty of Stanley Parable. If you wanted to play something that will make you laugh and smile while being true to its form pick up the Stanley parable I guarantee you won't regret it.
