Default The Stanley Parable

Don't play this game! It provokes existential crises while you're playing. Though, it is hilarious at the same time. Well worth playing.

It is absolute genius. My life has been irreversibly changed for the worse.

I wonder how far this parable was meant to be extended! Great game and pretty much a must play. Very clever.

^ Yeah, I remember this game making me feel sour for a few hours afterwards.

If I recall I broke the game by finding an alternative ending: leaping off the barriers a few times ultimately killing myself.

I'd like to say it was outside the game's script, but if I can do it's not in the end. Still, within the context of the game: lol, just lol.

Try unplugging the phone, now that's how you break the game.

If anyone figures out how to beat the control room let us know.

"Eight."

The demo, which is free on Steam, is itself worth playing.

I think what Cognisant means is disabling the self-destruct in the control room.

Also, I couldn't figure out what to do in the broom closet.
