Stanley Clicked "YES": The Stanley Parable Returns

The Stanley Parable - that extraordinary Source mod from last year - is to receive a reinvention as an independent game, hoping to find its way to Steam via the Greenlight thing. And there's a new trailer to prove it.

If you've not played the mod, then I sincerely suggest you do. I hadn't until this morning, and it's brilliant. Why? That would spoil it. You'll just have to trust me.

If you have played it, then what you'll want to know most of all is whether narrator Kevan Brighting is on board again. And the answer is: yes!

I want Brighting to read me bedtime stories every night. With his voice precisely halfway between Roger Allam and Martin Jarvis, he makes the perfect, wry guide to this exploration of player agency. (Also, he does the most amazing Kenneth Williams impression.)

Quite why something like this needs to go through Greenlight, rather than just be welcomed onto Steam with a hearty "of course" I'm not entirely sure. But you can of course click on it until it gets there.
