The Stanley Parable

As one of the things suggested in the feedback session I had a look at The Stanley Parable. This trailer shows how the user moves through the world freely and explores the virtual world that they have been placed in.

What is great about The Stanley Parable is it really pays attention to choices and options that the user has available to them. This game is about complete freedom and from what I can see in the reviews of this game the users really love that they have a lot of freedom within the world as this character.


This gets us to thinking about what we want from our experience, do we wish to place restrictions on the user or do we want to give them the freedom to explore. After seeing this game and many more like it we have also decided to opt for a freedom experience by having an explorable gallery section were the user will have free reign. The interview section does not restrict the user but the cannot manually move they can look around and view the experience to its best.

“The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end.”
