The standalone version of The Stanley Parable has an estimated release window. According to an update on the devblog, Davey Wreden expects to release the full game in October of this year on Steam. The indie developer has not settled on a price yet.
The project, previously known as The Stanley Parable: HD Remix, is a remake of Wreden’s own Half-Life 2 mod released in 2011 which is still available for free. In the game, the player battles (or doesn’t) a narrator in a drab office setting while testing the concept of free will. The mod garnered critical praise for its exploration of narrative control.
