The Stanley Parable HD

The Stanley Parable "almost there", will release next month

This is a news post about a man named Stanley. Stanley was the star of The Stanley Parable, a first-person ambulator mod for Half-Life 2. In it, he was guided through a dark and humorous meta-narrative by an avuncular narrator with an inimitable style. A style that was nevertheless a boon for a lazy writer who needed a pithy way to introduce the news that the game's upgraded, standalone version would be released next month.

The Stanley Parable HD goes for the Greenlight (but does Steam have a choice about it?)

There's a bit of an argument going on behind the scenes at the moment between myself and Martin over whether The Stanley Parable is 'a tediously sophomoric and wholly unsubtle satire of player agency' or whether he, Martin, has 'no soul'. As the boss, officially he wins. But as I'm writing this, I choose to cheer whole-heartedly that one of my favourite mods in years looks set for bigger things. Sure, it's only on 2% right now, but you aregoing to click the thumbs up. You only think you might not...
