Mega64 Tackles "The Stanley Parable" In Real Life
This is the story of a man named Stanley. In celebration of the critically acclaimed interactive fiction title, which offered players the chance to make their own decisions against a narrative trying to drive their own choices. It's one of the most unique gameplay experiences I've had in a while. I think it's the unique narrative aspect that attracted the folks at Mega64 to attempt the experience in real life, with some very surprising results. Using the same British narrator who lent his voice to The Stanley Parable, this is probably one of my favorite Mega64 shorts since their excellent Hotline Miami skit. Only one iPhone was smashed into oblivion during the filming of this fine short.
