The Stanley Parable expands again in Ultra Deluxe edition

Splendid walk-o-laffer The Stanley Parable is being revisited and expanded again in an Ultra Deluxe edition. This will bring new endings, new choices, and I'm sure so very many new secrets. The main goal of Ultra Deluxe is to bring the game to consoles but hey, it'll come our way too so we all win. Have a peek at Stanley's anguish in the announcement trailer.

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

The Beginner’s Guide To The Beginner’s Guide – The New Game From Stanley Parable Creator

I can't imagine a more daunting development task than having to follow up on The Stanley Parable. The truly stunning meta-game was a deserved phenomenon, catapulting developers Davey Wreden and William Pugh into the heights of indie fame. A game that pulled at the threads of gaming, seeing how they'd unravel, makes for a very tough act to follow. But that's what Stanley creator Wreden…

Rick & Morty Chap Exploring VR With Stanley Co-Dev

The co-creator of splendid Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty (also the voice of their words and belches) Justin Roiland is planning some sort of virtual reality game thing for HTC Vive, working with folks including one of the Stanley Parable chaps. It's a bit of a mystery for now but he's a funny chap and Stanley's pal William Pugh is too, so that's nice.…

Have You Played… The Stanley Parable?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. The Stanley Parable was big when it came out. Its sense of humour, its impossible architecture, its multiple narration strands all came together to form a wonderful breath of fresh air with a wide-ranging appeal. But it turns out there are at least,…

Stanley’s Papers: IGF 2014 Finalists Revealed

It's all been a bit Massively Mainstream Games About Aliens today, so it's something of a relief to instead turn my gaze to some of the indie highlights of the last and upcoming year. Though that said, the finalists list - the finalistlist - for the 16th annual Independent Games Festival is, while awash with truly splendid games, somewhat short on surprises, which may add…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for boarding up the windows, counting the canned goods and panic buying videogames. Also, for doing things for the first time. Every year the Interactive Fiction competition attracts inventive entries in the words-you-play genre. Every year, Emily Short writes smart-words-you-read about the entries she likes, and it's worth spending a day diving through the round-up of her favourites, before playing the games for…

Stanley’s Profitable: Galactic Cafe Shifts 100K+ Parables

Not bad going for a game that that's so very difficult to describe, eh? Galactic Cafe - aka Davey Wreden - have managed to flog over 100,000 copies of affectionate choice'n'consequence skit The Stanley Parable to date. Did he achieve this by following the rules and doing everything he was expected to, or did he choose another path, going his own way despite the nurturing…

You Must Must Must Play The Stanley Parable Demo

I'm not going to explain it, because that would be madness. But you must. The full game is out on the 17th, and, look, just play this. Trust me. Don't not play it. Don't think that you're saving it up to play the full thing next week. That's not the right choice. Playing this is the right choice.

Let’s Play With Your Mind: The Stanley Parable Trailer

This Stanley Parable trailer is definitely my favourite game trailer of the second Wednesday Thursday (this post was written yesterday, time fans) of September of the year 2013. The developer has embraced popular culture and asked Youtube game talker-over Chilled Chaos to make one of those Let's Play things, but all is not as it seems. Watch as the boring corridors slowly lull the gabbing…

Postal Dad: Stanliest Gnome – 21 New Games Greenlit

Everyone, it's OK. You can calm down now. Put away your finely honed rioting tools and carefully calibrated bludgeoning instruments. Octodad: Dadliest Catch, you see, finally got the Greenlight go-ahead to haphazardly fling itself in Steam's general direction. After flopping and flailing about in hilarious frustration for 30 or so minutes, it also managed to affix 20 other games to its tentacles - which it…
