One night I didn’t feel like playing an MMO. It happened to be a night where there was a Steam sale on Stanley’s Parable, a game I’ve heard a lot about, so I got that and played it.
First of all, it’s not a game. There needs to be another category for this kind of thing. Something like Interactive Art Project or Interactive Entertainment. (It’s similar to Gone Home in that regard.) Stanley’s Parable is like a point-and-click Adventure game I suppose, but it’s not quite the same because there aren’t really any puzzles to solve. It’s something you are just supposed to view and experience, not “play.”
Anyway, I give it two thumbs up. It’s witty and fun and I laughed a lot.
