The Stanley Parable is out next week, on 17 October. In the hopes of convincing you to play it, developer Galactic Cafe have released a demo. It is possibly the best demo I have ever played.
The Stanley Parable is described as a first-person exploration game, which seems pretty fitting based on what happened in the demo, but this is not Dear Esther. This is a ridiculous (and frequently hilarious) head-screw. For what it’s worth, the demo itself is entirely new – the playable section on offer here is not in the full game, so even if you were already planning on playing it, there’s no reason not to give this a go.
I’d say more, but I don’t want to ruin it. Pop on over to Steam, download it, play it, and laugh. It’s pretty much convinced me that the full version will be worth my money.
