The Stanley parable

Recommended Posts

The list is too cryptic, but there are only 6 endings to the original mod. Like I said, go down the elevator, than take the red door for one, and the blue door for the other.

 

OHHHHH ok thanks :)

 

Done those two were actually the most interesting I think. Now ready to play the new super version.

@Sméagol be interested to know how you are getting on with this. So far I've found 10 unique endings (well 9 definite endings one that I think is an endless loop, so wandered off and got another ending from it.) along with one ending that had many more possibilities before it....just not sure how each binary each choice could have been.

I played the hell out of it when I first got it. I’ve seen most of the stuff, some of the newer stuff with the help of the Steam forums though. There’s a very handy chart that can be found there somewhere.

 

The thing is not all things are easily identifiable as an ending (because some explicitly restart, where others just don’t end, and you have to restart yourself). I believe the community counts 19, and then there are various minor stuff that you can enjoy, like the telephone calls, and the closet room.

 

Then there’s stuff that remains a mystery.. People still don’t know if there actually a way to continue the confusion ending, personally I think probably not. There are hints however, that it’s possible, but I think they’re just part of it, once again the game designer is messing with our minds. There’s also the “unachievable” achievement, some people have gotten it, but they don't know how. The method is unknown and seems to change with each patch.. Luckily, I’m not that bothered with achievements.

 

For some endings I wish there was a definitive ending to it, or an alternative way to end it, like the zending. As far as I know there is only one way to end it.

 

To help you on your way, one ending you’ve probably missed, and one ending you’ve surely missed: try closing the door as soon as you start. The one you’ve surely missed is the baby game ending.. Yes, there is an actual ending to it. You’re better off watching it on Youtube, as someone already went through all that trouble..

The baby game ending? So you mean hit mashing the button endlessly?! I let the baby and gave up.

 

I can see how the events around that with the numbers for rating the experience can give a number of possible endings. I knew closing the door was an ending even though I haven't done it myself. It was in the source mod.

 

I definitely like how fleshed out things are so many of the endings have been changed for the better. I love how do ridiculous things can lead to an ending...like throwing yourself off the crane lift onto the warehouse floor. I was curious about the confusion ending thing surely there has to be a way to do it....

 

It is hard to track your right though I've had one ending where endlessly watching something and everytime I went to leave the narrator asked me to stay. So I classed that as an ending even though it wasn't and leaving lead me on a merry goose chase.

 

I've ended up making some notes so I know where potential variables exist as some are quite a way into an answer.

Well, the chart is there somewhere, if you want to see all the (known) endings. I could try to list them from the top of my head, there’s at least one ending (well, 2, both the same but different outcomes) I’m sure you’ve missed.. I missed that one myself.

 

As for the baby game ending.. No, I mean, the narrator asks you to play it for 4 hours. There actually is an ending to it.. After 4 hours.

ah yes ok.

 

I'm gonna use my own chart to check a couple of theories before I refer to the communities!

And another, more significant update for this 8 year old thread!

I was totally unaware of this, but there's a new update (to the same game yes) coming! And it's coming to consoles..

Man, I hope this comes out on Switch. Probably my favourite game of last generation that wasn't on a Nintendo console.

I saw the credits roll on my third playthrough and I was floored that what I did actually was taken into account!

Thanks for bumping the thread out of nowhere. That made me think it had been released. :blank:
