The Stanley Parable
Have your say
10
The Stanley Parable packshot image
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. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. This world was not made for you to understand. But as you explore, slowly, meaning begins to arise, the paradoxes might start to make sense, perhaps you are powerful after all. The game is not here to fight you; it is inviting you to dance. Based on the award-winning 2011 Source mod of the same name, The Stanley Parable returns with new content, new ideas, a fresh coat of visual paint, and the stunning voicework of Kevan Brighting.

The Stanley Parable Becomes A Runaway Success
Oct-23-2013 [pc]

pretty much max, not on AA or antistropic, might have to bump shadows down and maybe the others, try to get trilinear buffering, it can ruin the game without it

Dude, Anisoatropic Filtering kills FPS. Not Anti-Aliasing. Look at my rig and I can run at fullscreen w/ high models, med. textures, low shaders, and 4x MSAA at 60 FPS.

It eventually make me nauseous, semi-vertigo after playing a few playthroughs. I wonder if my TV is too close to me :( I've played Skyrim, Doom, Metro, Far Cry 3 with no head problems.

Oh, this is just because if you're using at least 4x MSAA, it adds a nice motion blur. Now this is great on smaller screens, but with a TV, it kills your eyes.

The demo sucks, it tricks people into buying the game, but the full version is pretty good.
