The Stanley Parable

Content Complete Part 5!

October 4, 2013

Well here we are. The game is content complete.

This is William Pugh speaking. I'm Davey's better half (we're talking game development here).
It's been a long road (much longer than anybody on the team expected) and now we've finally here at the end.

As you all know we've kept pretty much everything about the game a complete secret, we've intentionally maintained complete radio silence when it comes to what we're working on and what we've been doing so that all of you may go into this and have a unique and unspoiled experience.

And all of that is about to pay off.

We're now very close to release and you'll be hearing a lot from us very soon about what's going to be happening leading up to the game's launch.
Everybody's put an awful lot of love into this game and we can't wait to set it free into the wild like a caged bird that has adapted to life in captivity and then quickly perishes when confronted with the dangers of the outside world.

I hope you're all ready for a video game!!

    I have never been more ready for anything ever. Except that time where I was more ready for that thing than I am for this thing.

    The old grandmaster in that ugly looking temple told me one day that some weird game would release.And that the development train would not stop.He was right.He also threw hot tea in my face.I guess That’s a sign of respect.Anyway, Congrats on finishing your game.If it was sold in physical copies, I would be in the front of the line at midnight.Which I never do.EVER.

  14. Moonstone says:

    One of the few games I actually have no second thoughts on buying on release. You guys deserve it, more so than any shit I’ve seen come out of greenlight, or hell, most any AAA title.

    Will there be shoes in the game? I love shoes!

    • PessimisticFrog_41 says:

      I highly doubt it. The game is called The Stanley Parable, not The Shoe Parable.

      Oh my god!! Shopping Shopping Shopping!!

      • Raphael says:

        This game better not be designed with you in mind.

            Hmmm. I am not sure whether i should be worried right now, happy or any of the other emotions I may or may not be able to experience. Anyways,
            I may or may not buy this game as I have no idea if this game will deeply affect my state of will-being in the best way possible, which would most likely turn me into a vegetable.

  18. Andrew says:

    Any news on a price? Also, let me say that if I’m buying a caged bird… it better damn well not be a dead parrot! I’m not worried; I know I’ll be blown away by the game… or will the game will be blown away because it’s a bird that couldn’t cope with the harsh winds of the marketplace? These metaphors are turning my brain upside down.

  23. Jack Mouse says:

    Oh, Stanley… we’re about to have much fun…

  24. Stanley #236 says:

    Is there a set price for this game? I’m about to put 10 dollars into my Steam wallet so that I may have enough to purchase this immediately upon release. Is that enough?

  25. sourcegamer101 says:

    Can’t wait for this. The original mod was so much fun. I can’t wait to see what this has in store.

  26. Raphael says:

    So so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so excited!
    Check out my write-up for the game. It’s not that good, and doesn’t nearly express my excitement, but at least it will hopefully be a tiny bit of publicity for the game. I should probably write a follow-up that better demonstrates my excitement!!!

  36. Georgia says:

    Davey! The demo download links on the Steam store page don’t do anything! They just freeze my client for a few seconds, but no download!
    kthnxbai

  37. Ryan says:

    HUZZAH!!! This is most excellent news. I’ve been excited for this remake for over a year now. Congrats to the both of you for getting it all finished!

  38. Sanz says:

    I was about to insta-buy and recommend this game to everyone I know, but thanks to GRAN PC being such a douche and a meanie, I’m not purchasing the game, since it’s not like I’d like to give that guy a single cent.

    If I ever want to play the game I’ll just download it or play it on someone else’s account.
