The Stanley Parable
If you liked the humor in Portal and Portal 2, do yourself a favor and download the demo for this game. I don't buy a lot of indie games, but this was an instant buy after going through the demo.

What is this... game?

I won't post too many spoilers, but the premise is you are suddenly alone in your office building, leaving you to explore and make choices to find out what is going on. Play the demo, it's worth the 469 MB download.

Edit: I will say that the demo is NOT a spoiler of the game's beginning. It does use the same Narrator, and is representative of the humor and playing style.

You can also get it for free as a mod for Half Life 2 but without the new spit and polish. The whole game, not the demo...

Maybe the demo too though? I dunno...

it's quite amusing, so far, I think I've gotten all of the endings except one that's hinted at. there are quite a few areas where you can go just to piss off the narrator.

Just played the demo and thought it was dreadfully boring. :whistle:

I liked Nerdcubed's description of it: It's like Portal if Portal was written by Douglas Adams.

That pretty much nails it! I'm a big fan of Douglas Adam's books.

I love this style of game, but didn't they remove some offensive images after complaints? That's enough to make me skip it, or at least a very good sale price.
