The Stanley Parable

So the Steam Holiday sale is running and I just picked up The Stanley Parable game. This is more like a non-game its a Parable. Which as defined from wikipedia is

A parable is a succinct, didactic story, in prose or verse, which illustrates one or more instructive lessons or principles. It differs from a fable in that fables employ animals, plants, inanimate objects, or forces of nature as characters, whereas parables have human characters. A parable is a type of analogy.

You play as Stanley Employee #427 at a company, one day he stops receiving orders to push buttons and that’s how the nongame starts. Your only companion is the narrarator who narrates what your doing as your doing it. That’s about it there’s a bunch of endings depending on what choices you don’t really make because you aren’t really in control the whole time I think?
