You Need to Play the Stanley Parable. Now.

You Need to Play the Stanley Parable. Now.

There’s a new Source mod circulating the Interwebs getting some decent attention, and for a good reason. The Stanley Parable is a narrative-driven Half-Life 2 mod that’s a little creepy, a little obtuse, and completely clever.

I really don’t want to spoil anything about this one; I went into it blind without any idea of what was going on, and while I’m still early in, the amazingly acted voiceover is eerily effective in increasing your desire to find out what the bloody hell is going on. Check out the trailer after the jump, or just download it for free here (you don’t need Half Life 2 to play it, fyi).
